4.01/5  rDev +12%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter- not the ideal glass but one that I have found I enjoy beer from whenever I am reviewing it.

This is a slightly cloudy light straw-gold color in body with a minimal head. The nose shows the faintest touch of sulfur, light earthy hops and some sweet grains. Approachable and inviting. Almost innocent.

The flavor is sweeter than expected, with a nice crackery barley presence that starts off strong and lasts throughout. The hops a light and present with minor earthy and even floral tones. Overall the feel is smooth from a lower level of carbonation (a bonus in my book) and the light sweetness actually makes this totally drinkable.

Conclusion: It seems to me that most of the reviewers on this site are still in their craft beer adolescence. By that I mean that they want simplicity, bold and easy to identify flavors, and constantly are seeking to "one-up" the beer they drank yesterday. Thus a mild flavored, low ABV, easy drinking beer such as this will score low. What if Upslope intended to keep everything mild mannered? And if so, why is that mandate a low score? I digress. This beer could almost pass as a kolsch as it is fruitier and slightly sweeter than the standard lager. Warmer fermentation perhaps? Either way, this is light, drinkable, and quiet tasty.

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!
