3.36/5 rDev -4.3%
Appearance: Slightly cloudy golden color. Above average carbonation active in the glass. Thin head mainly around the edges of the glass. Sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell: Creamy front hits right away. Hints of soy, butter, and dairy. Light doughy hop presence is easy going and pleasant.
Taste: Smooth front with some light bite from the carbonation. Accents of dandelions and spring flowers. The finish is less then memorable, the creamy malt and lighter accents just fade off. The hop presence in the body comes off with a session springy feeling.
Mouthfeel: Light, easy, super drinkable. Some light malt left behind on the palate.
Overall: Definitely has the feel that a summer beer should. Chewy, creamy malt with light springy hops. Good for a hot day on the porch.

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.

Uinta : Sum'R
LOOK: Perfectly clear golden brew with a white foam that sticks around for a while. There is ample lace left on the glass.
SMELL: Bready, floral, and a touch of pine. Just slightly citrusy.
TASTE: Light flavor of lemon and green tea, with a biscuity malt. Cracker like yeast is also in the flavor profile. Mild hoppy acidity gives the beer a refreshing, juicy quality. Bitterness here is very soft.
FEEL: Light bodied, but with perfect carbonation. The yeast costs the palate entirely which could be a sign this was unfiltered, or maybe just oily.
OVERALL: A pretty good ale, one that I would revisit in the right circumstances. It's light, drinkable, and has the refreshing quality a summer ale needs to have. Not too bad at all.

From the can marked Best Before 10/10/13. Sampled on July 12, 2013.
The pour is golden yellow with a long lasting, foamy white head with carbonation that continues bubbling upwards all the way to the end.
The nose is of grainy malts, crisp clean hops, and a drop of lemon zing in the background.
It has the ideal summer body with a light and refreshing texture.
The taste is upfront grainy but there are enough clean hops to balance it off. Also that lemon citrus activity is mellow but adds to the character.

I think it is the can that saves this. This is a slightly better than just OK light ale, but the fact that it is in cans seems to keep it very clean - no nastiness from light.
It pours into it's greatest attribute - the pretty yellow, nearly clear, loads of lace. Altogether a very attractive pour.
The aroma is OK, but nothing to write home about. A slight finishing hops aroma. Nice but subtle. The taste is a refreshing blandness. Not very anything. Similarly, the aftertaste is nothing either. It is something good to wash food down with or to drink many of on a hot day.

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.
