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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- A beautiful gold color, brilliant clarity, with a lingering lace and subtle head that lingered to the end.
A- Very muted aroma. No noticeable hop or malt aroma. The esters typically associated with the style are missing.
T- Taste is subtle grass with a slight bitterness that borders on astringent. The bitterness is firm for the style, but lacks any hop flavor or aroma.
M- Carbon level was acceptable/appropriate, and the mouthfeel was dry and crisp.
O- Disappointing. Kolsch is my style, but every time I try a new American interpretation I'm left wondering if any of them have ever had a traditional example from Koln. Cant recall the last good one I had! Colorado Kolsch is the last one that came close

Clear yellow color, minimal bubbles with a couple rising to the surface. Smells sort of grainy. Flavor is grainy malt, cereals, not very crisp and not very hoppy despite what the label says. Very easy to drink though since the ABV is so low. This was a decent beer but is my least favorite for the style and I won't make a repeat purchase on this one.

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!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 12 oz short bottle, bright colored label with a hoodoo rock formation. Nice change from some of the older Uinta designs. Bottled on date marked, but I don't see an ABV.

Appearance: Clear golden, thick head with good retention and lacing.

Smell: Bready malt and just a bit of citrus, no noticeable hops.

Taste: Smooth mouthfeel and medium carbonation levels. Quite a bit of citrus in the taste, with a bready malt flavor dominating.

Overall impression: Decent light offering, good flavor but nothing interesting enough to make me want to come back for more.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Attractive golden in the glass with quite adequate foam and lacing. Sprightly in the mouth. Has a nice perfumey hop flavor with the right Kölsch crispness. A kiss of malt sweetness on the lips with a welcome touch of bitterness. Tastes "beery" in a good way. Clean and well made, and a nice choice among the Utah supermarket beers.

A great light beer. Such an improvement over the standard lagers. Harmon's Markets in Salt Lake have single 12 oz bottles available of a bunch of the Uinta and other local low-octane beers.

Cool bottle I picked up at my local bottle shop. I always love to see new Kölsch-styles around this area. 12oz bottle poured into a stange.

Pours a pale gold with a big foamy white head on top. Retained well. Some lace left behind. The nose is fresh with lemon, and other zest, and the common-to-this-style aroma of cut-grass. Nice mouth. Carbonation is spot-on. Not too sprtizy. Faint lemon flavors, cracker, bread, mild hops, and a crisp, dry finish. This is a fantastic beer. I'm gonna go grab a sixer of this this weekend if it's still around.

3.25/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

Bottled On: 9/22/11

Pours a nice clean/clear golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy white head, with some minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, sweet, with a little hop note. The taste is sweet, malty, slightly hoppy. Medium Body. A pretty tasty brew, a nice thrist quencher.
