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.

Pale straw color, very thin head without much retention. Barely a faint ring of bubbles left behind. The beer has a slight haze, and the carbonation looks weak. Aroma of lightly sweet cereal grains, clean, with only the faintest citric hop note.

Zesty lemon fruit and bready malt up front, lightly drying toward the back with a subtle bitterness. Muted hop balance. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Alcohol is low.

This beer works decently for style, but for such a simple lager the quality and balance have to be almost perfect to really set it apart. While a notch better, it really doesn't stand out far enough many of the macro lagers on the market. Easy to drink and potentially sessionable, it just doesn't do it for me.
