Appearance – Poured a pale straw in color with the slightest amount of haze. Very little head with no lacing

Smell – Sweet hay and white bread are the predominate smells given off by this beer. A little funk given of by the hops, but very mellow.

Taste – Crisp, clean, and sweet. Very grainy throughout with hints of corn. There was a bit of citrus flavor (lime) throughout, though it is most noticeable in the finish.

Mouthfeel – Honestly it was very thin and the hops used gave the beer a bit of astringency. The beer was very carbonated adding to the thin texture. (580 characters)

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. (539 characters)

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 (293 characters)

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. (351 characters)

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. (1,008 characters)
