It's snowing out. There's snow on the bottle. Destiny.

Amber. Persistent thin head leaves multiple lace rings around my glass. A fine looking' lager. Toasted malt and slightly nutty aroma. Tastes toasty with a balance neutral noble hop balance.

Like a slightly smoother Long Trail Ale.

Strange aftertaste - plastic like. Nothing I would revisit.

Yard Sale is an apropos name for this beer: it's pretty much junk that Uinta is selling to whomever will take a chance on it. Technically, this beer smells like Budweiser and tastes like a lager, but with a much darker hue. If you're into lagers, this might be somewhat interesting but it will be a lot more expensive than your typical lager. Me, I'm not a fan.

Like a Bud Light clone that costs twice as much... Avoid.

I had purchased this at The Friendly Greek with every intent of drinking it over the past Winter, but now that we are a few days into the Summer of 2014, I feel compelled to reduce some of my backlog.

From the bottle: "Earth, Wind and Beer Shredded by Uinta Brewing Co. Salt Lake City Utah"; "For best flavor enjoy in a glass"; "Brewed with renewable power Wind & Solar"; "Winter Lager".

I was anxious to get started, so I went with an aggro pour, initially, backing off only when the pseudo-cascade began to create so much head that I had to back off. In fact, I got a small amount of overflow as a result. The upshot was three solid fingers of dense, tawny head with persistent retention. Color was a deep copper (SRM = > 17, < 22) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a cool, minty quality, but I was expecting spices or some such from a "Winter" beer. Hmmm. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was minty with a caramel malt undertone. Nice, but not really "Wintry". Finish was semi-sweet and pleasant, but there is no way that I would risk a horrific skiing accident for more of it.
