Light beer with a smooth finish. Not bad, but if you're looking for big flavor, this isn't it.

Amazing clarity and lots of carbonation from the bottom. Straw-amber color with a silky little shock white sheet of a head on top. Lacing in patches down the glass. Smells light and summery, with some very light bready malts and a touch of floral hops.

Light and refreshing in body and feel, not much hop presence other than a very faint hoppy taste in the back. The malts aren't sweet and have a biscuity quality to them that ends up leaving a slightly weird aftertaste and linger. Effervescent mouthfeel in its light airiness, but manages to be crisp to the tongue and a little bit prickly in carbonation. Not the best Kolsch I've had, but then again its not bad. Just nothing all that exciting about it, unlike Uinta's other low ABV selection in Baba Black Sheep. I thought that one was very unique and well done, whereas this one is a little on the bland side.

nothing special here, a very standard an unexciting pale beer. pours clear and washed out yellow looking with a decent white head. smells like a beer, a bit of euro malts but nothing memorable in the nose. flavor is equally dull, its crisp and refreshing, but it doesnt taste like much. this is a style of beer that can be quite exciting when done properly, im not sure why this one is so flat. feel is fine, well carbonated and very very light on the body. i wont buy this again, not because its bad, but because its boring. i prefer the hop notch from uinta

Clear golden colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells of toasted grain and malt with a bit of a bake sweet bread scent. Faint apple butter scent to this.

Starts out slightly sweet with a fruity flavor. Medium bitterness and lots of toasted grain and caramel.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall way decent for a 4% Utah supermarket beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bright, golden-yellow appearance, thin head, looks a bit hazy throughout. Aroma has a grainy, crackery bite, with faint notes of citrus.

The taste has a mostly clean, biscuity malt flavor. Touches of dry bitterness at the back, hop balance is pretty non-existent. Alcohol is not discernable. The mouthfeel is a bit thin but has a zesty carbonation to compensate.

Overall a decent hot weather brew, but it doesn't distinguish itself well enough for the style. For all I would know this could be some sort of pale lager. Despite it not being a great Kolsch, it's still doable.

6 pack from Smith's in Vernal for $9.99. Into a Boulevard Pint.

A: Gold in color with a finger's worth of stark white head that quickly fades to a thin cap. Excellent clarity, and quite a few bubbles moving up through this.

S: Not much, lightly grainy with a slightly soapy hop profile. Smells really light and crisp.

T: Follows the nose, light and grainy with a bit of sweetness. A slight amount of bitterness evens things out on the finish. Nice spicy hop profile. Pretty enjoyable stuff.

M: Light, crisp carbonation, and really dry. Very enjoyable.

O: Not too shabby, a nice session beer that I am glad to be able to get regularly, especially once summer hits.
