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.

Picked this up in the mixed six section at the House of 1,000 beers

A - Pours a bit dark for a lager more IPA color with a 1/2 inch of sticky head which doesn't seem to fizz out. Good lacing.
S - Lager tones, cereal grains, some hops. Not really picking up why this is a "winter" lager...
T - Very malty in fact I can see why some note Brown malts used that surely would explain the taste and color. Not much skunk flavor and finish is not sweet or harsh.
M - Light to medium it does drink a bit heavy for the session ABV.

Overall like most of these beers its hit or miss and I really don't like this one. I am sure this would appeal to low ABV lovers but I see nothing "winter" about this lager.
