Pours straw gold with a fizzy white head that recedes after a minute or two. No lacing, but good carbonation with tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass the entire time.

Smells like a refined euro lager. Crisp and clean with a slight sweetness and earthy hops coming through.

Taste mimics the nose with a good moderate dose of saaz hops providing earthy, spicy notes, plus a little bit of lemon. Light bready malts lend a slight sweetness. This is a flavor profile everyone is accustomed to from mass marketed pale lagers, but pay close attention and you'll notice the hop bill has been ratcheted up a little here and things are overall more refined. Nice refreshing beer that goes down easy without being too boring.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours a sudsy white head that recedes slowly leaving some lacing. Color is a clear light golden with abundant streaming carbonation.
Aroma: light toasted barley marley, yeast rolls, and some floral hop aroma.
Mouthfeel: light bodied, crisp, just slightly sticky with a mostly dry finish.
Flavor: nicely balanced with sweet barely malt, biscuit, apple, and some mild hops in the finish. Overall: a very pleasant and drinkable lager. Well done Upslope!

$9.99 for a six pack at Liquor Shed in Casper. Canned 17th of March 2014.

It pours a clear and bright straw yellow with a 3 finger head of foam, does well with the lacing.

It smells grainy, earthy, slightly sweet. Overall, right for the style.

Nice tasting brew. The grain isn't overwhelming, good solid malt presence that has some sweetish notes and there's a nice bit of a hoppy bite that brings a flavourful balance to this Lager. Easy drinking, smooth, tasty, yes, I like this.

Creamy mouthfeel and so drinkable, almost a session beer by US standards but not quite. Still, I could enjoy putting away a few cans of this Craft Lager and not feel guilty. Upslope is a solid brewery in my book.
