3.88/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into an American pint glass.

A-Golden yellow medium carbonation in the glass. Nice thick bubbly head with thick and soapy lacy sides. Excellent!

S- A little sweet malty smell and a little fruity. Overall the smells are not too noticeable.

T-Refreshing and on the sweet malty side. I sensed a touch of lemon peel and some dry bread. A little flat and watery because of the strange utah Abv laws, but Uinta still managed to pull this one off. The aftertaste was slightly bitter, with a slight buttery feel.

M-Wet and refreshing. Doesn't stick around in the mouth for too long. Nice end of summer brew.

Overall, this is a refreshing beer and I will buy it again. Utah is strange about its liqour laws so it hinders what a REAL beer should taste like. Not the best kolsch I've had because of the strange flavor combos.

3.55/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: This one has a clear bright golden body with a tall loose head on top. This head settles down quickly leaving just a few bubbles at the surface and around the edge of the glass.

Smell: There is not much going on here. The aroma is very light. Only a slight citrusy hop presence is noted.

Taste / Palate: The flavor profile is very clean and light. There is a very modest and refreshing cracker like malty base with mild lemony hop bitterness. The finish is quick and fairly dry.

A - orangish copper with a thick cap of foamy, pure white head that has great retention

S - bread, lemon, grass, maybe some faint caramel

T - bread, lemon, caramel, grass, noble hops characteristics

M - crisp, medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a nice, refreshing, clean beer. It's rather malty which is its only (slight) set back. The hops are there and it is close to balanced. It's highly drinkable and definitely sessionable. It's another offering from Uinta that's worth checking out.

Pours a clear golden yellow color with a rough white head that fades quickly leaving little chunks of lacing.

Smells of slight fruity and grassy notes.

Tastes of the grainy sweetness mostly. Fairly light with some bread and a bit of grape like notes. Hops are hidden a little, but do come through as it warms adding a grassy and floral touch.

Mouthfeel is light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a nice refreshing beer and it is quite enjoyable.

Hey! You do the hoo doo! Doing this do.. Right now. Time to Krush a Kolsch, hoping for a decent one here, so off we go. Bottled Jan 12, 2012 we are off!

Fluffy and styrofoamy white head, fairly large when poured into my Gaffel Kolsch stange glass. Dark twenty four carat gold, lots of large cola bubbles though. Looks alright, we got some good staying power on this head.

Nose is grainy malt, a little spicy and dry. Faint arid white bread. Gets better after some rest interestingly enough. Pulling out some white bread punch.

Taste is a nice almost German Pilsner thick body feeling sensation, but with a bit of simple malt chewy character, and a muted crispness. Finish brings the dry bread air like crazy, fantastic finish on this beer, of baked fresh white flour. Nicely soft with a little carbonation, nothing crazy though.

Overall just real solid, very enjoyable. Now that I see it's 4% I am getting another!
