11 oz. bottle poured into a Sam's perfect pint glass.

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this certainly wasn't it.

This beer pours a very light and pale gold with a full head. The nose - which is fairly uninteresting - is a little malty with overtones of fresh hay.

The taste really conjures images of a farm field. Lots of hay, German malts, and an almost sweaty flavor. There is almost a rusty quality to the beer - something I might expect more in a red ale than this Blonde.

While I appreciate the crispness, dryness, and low alcohol content, the flavors are so offputting that I found this to be most unpleasant. However, I feel that this isn't a poorly crafted ale, hence I cannot legitimately rate it lower - despite my near thorough unenjoyment.

12 fl oz green aluminum can acquired at Wally's Wine in Westwood and served into a conical Samuel Smith's pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; I usually like Uinta's offerings.

Served cold, straight from the fridge, and side-poured as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger white colour head. Decent thickness. Okay cream. Above average (~3 minute) retention. No bubble show. No lacing as the head recedes.

Body colour is a clear translucent pale yellow; vibrance is decent. No yeast particles are visible.

Overall, it's decidedly standard fare for a blonde. I'm optimistic but unimpressed.

Sm: Pale malts, crisp clean barley, and generic floral hops. Straw. Light vague lime. Some lemon citrus - probably from the hops. Grainy. No yeast character or alcohol is detectable. A mild strength aroma.

T: Blonde malts, pilsner malts. Light floral hops. Clean and crisp. A bit grainy. Straw. Clean barley. No yeast character or alcohol is detectable. Quite simple, but decently put together. No complexity or subtlety here, but decent balance. I like it in a general sense. A bit of vague lime.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Not oily or biting. Not harsh. Clean. A bit crisp. Decent presence on the palate. Decent thickness and body. Doesn't feel custom-tailored to the flavour profile, but it suits it generally. Average carbonation.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but largely underwhelming. Not Uinta's best, but I see what they were going for. I wouldn't get it again. The whole Organic thing comes off as a bunch of gimmicky bullshit. I'm less than impressed. A forgettable low ABV beer with little to offer. I wouldn't recommend it to friends.

A- pours a pale gold with minimal foam. not much retention

S- slight maltiness and grassy smell.

T- a little malty. There is a minimal grassy taste, but the malts overwhelm the flavor

M- light. This would be smoother except for the malts that coat the entire mouth.

O- decent beer. Would be great in the summer. The only real complaint is the excessive use of malt.

Golden yellow that is slightly hazy. Almost no head just a bunch of large bubbles sticking to the sides. Light/Pilsner malt aroma with some lemon grass. Somewhat sour like macro lager. Flavor is carbonated and crisp. Extremely pale/sour malty let down. There is a light grassy hop finish that separates it from the category of bad macro brew.
