Pours out a cloudy bright yellow with a good size head that doesn't seem to last. Lots of particles or trub in this beer. Smell is mostly malty with some minor, light citrus hops coming through. I thought I got some light corn notes early but they quickly went away.
Taste is very solid. Mouthfeel is a bit heavy but balances just fine with this solid hop bitterness. Grainy, fruity with some more citrus hops coming through.
I like this beer. Yeah, it's got some minor flaws but who doesn't? I like a lot of these summer beers and this is no exception.

Not a style I would go to often but I was grilling yesterday and this was nice to have all afternoon.Poured into a standard pint glass a clear lemon tinged light golden with a thinner white head atop.The aromas were actually quite complex with lemony hops,toasted cereal grain,and a hint of biscuit.Lighter mouthfeel was expected but it didn't deter much from the beer,bright lemony notes along with a grainy element that lingers into a nice finish.One of the better beers I can think of if you want a low alcohol but flavorful blonde ale.

12 ounce bottle, "Bottled on 5/27/11"
Pour: Golden straw, near clear, white head that stays as a film and leaves respectable strands of lace.
Wheaty malt sniff
More wheat infused malt flavorings and just a hit of drying hops in the finish.
Nothing more then expected, decent summer quaffer

Poured into becker pint glass; clear golden yellow with a medium white head that sticks around with lots of foam and lacing. Smell is lots of crackery malt and just a hint of citrus and grassy crisp hops. Taste is delicious; crisp, clean body of biscuity malt with a perfect pinch of juicy citrus and crisp hops. Another great session beet from Uinta.

Pale in color, somewhere between white gold and yellow gold, there's definitely no doubting this beer's "blondeness." The moderately sized, bubbly head on it is pure white. Retention is good, and spotty lacing is left in moderation.
This is a unique beer, certainly within parameters of what's become something of a catch-all for a light ale not brewed with wheat. It has some interesting characteristics to it, though. Nicely hoppy for a little blonde with an ample malt balance, the way they come together isn't typical. Grassy and citrusy with some herbal notes, it's also got some pithy rind, and it balances an interestingly doughy sort of malt. The smell brings out something like cookie (?), while in the flavor there's more of a flash of nuttiness before a more fruit-forward finish.
Barely medium in body, it's got more heft than many blondes. It's also got a hard bite of crispness all the way through without giving up smoothness. A gently herbal edge gives a little dryness going into the finish.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a crystal clear pale gold, with 2 fingers of foamy bright-white head. This retains with a rich dollop of froth right in the middle of the glass, which soaps the sides of the glass with thick lacing. The aroma smells grassy, spicy, and citric with some supportive bready sweetness underneath. The hops really give a bold push here in the nose though overall, with that spiciness in particular stickng out.
The taste is a light green citrus to flavor to it that while well balanced by the grainy sweetness of the malts, still spread a leafy and spicy bitterness out into the profile which lingers in the finish with some steadiness. The mouthfeel is lighter to medium bodied, with an overall smooth creaminess to it and just enough of a prickle to keep this crisp on the tongue.
This was certainly a pretty hoppy take on an American Blonde and I didn’t mind one bit. This was flavorful, crisp and light on the palate, making for a pleasant drinkable experience. Uinta has been doing nicely for me this summer with these quaffable lighter beers.
