I wasn't so sure about having Hazel at first, but upon further reading, I decided to give it a shot.

Serving Type: Straight out of the bottle

Appearance: Didn't really see due to drinking out of the bottle, although I'm sure it would've looked really good.

Smell: Scent of Citrus and Wheat bear strongly and come forth. Really good scents in my opinion, and it also tells me this is going to be an interesting brew.

Taste: When I first drank it, I detected an orange-lemon taste. Second drink, the wheat comes forth, giving it the taste of Wheat Thins. All throughout the duration of drinking, it becomes clear that this is what a Citrus Wheat Thin would taste like. The flavor is consistent all the way through the brew 'til the end.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, the hops are very balanced. It's not too smooth, but not really rough at all either. Very pleasant feel to it.

Overall: It's an extremely good beer. This could be a drink-straight or drink-pair brew. Either way it could go. If pairing with food, I would recommend a wheat-bun burger to go with it, and have a mildly spicy sauce on it. Flavors really open up with that pairing.

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

Bottled: 11/11/11

Pours a nice clean/clear dark golden brown color, nice carbonation, little fizzy off-white head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, slight yeast note. The taste is slightly sweet, malty, kinda yeasty. Medium Body, with a slightly dry finish. This is a nice little brew, nothing special though.

Handsome amber in the glass. Very fragrant nose is the best feature. A simple beer with clean flavors and a nice touch of malty sweetness. Another lower-alcohol Utah beer that has an appealing flavor. Not much in the way of hops, however.

Bottled on 12/16/11. Interesting that the label says it contains "barley malt, hops, and yeast," but no mention of wheat malt.

a: bright red-gold with minimal head.

s: yeast! And a little fruity hoppiness, but mostly yeast.

t: yeasty, toasty and mild. They say beer is like bread that you can drink. Now I believe it.

m: sparkly.

o: I like this! It's complex enough to be interesting without being overbearing and pretentious. It's just a nice, smooth, beery-bready-flavoured beer. This is going on the "classier-than-usual summer evening quaff" list.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet, some spices are apparent. Taste is of mild lemons, some spices, a bit of wheat, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

A mini-trade with my colleague, Sam Knocken, netted me this and several other Uinta beers. That works!

From the bottle: "Earth, Wind and Beer Personified by Uinta Brewing Co. Salt Lake City Utah"; "For best flavor enjoy in a glass"; "Brewed with renewable power"; "Amber Wheat Ale".

I saw no reason to hold back and went with an aggro pour, resulting in a dense, foamy finger of light-tan head with good retention. Color was a deep coppery-amber with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a strong malty sweetness, slightly bready, slightly biscuity. Mouthfeel was medium with a big, sweet presence on the tongue. Finish remained fairly sweet and I found myself thankful that I only traded for one of these. It is not that there was anything intrinsically wrong with it, nor was it out of spec for the style guidelines as promulgated by this site. Instead, I just prefer something hoppier and when I do not get it, I tend to move on. Caveat emptor!
