This beer seems to be all over Utah but instead of it being like a craft beer it seems more like a macrobrew in quality and taste. It has a decent clarity and gold color but upon opening the bottle up and pouring it the head was somewhat weak and the aroma smelled a tad skunky. Where it really seemed to fall flat was the taste. It had little character and drinkability was limited to one bottle. The malt came through but it had a soapy aftertaste.

12oz bottle into SA perfect pint. Thanks to mjyoung for sharing. Bottled 5/6/11.
A: Pours a deep amber with a rather thin head despite my rather rough pour. The head did last an abnormally long time however, a left a good amount of lacing down the glass.
S: Not picking up much. Light scents of caramel do poke through along with maybe a hint of citrus peel.
T: Light notes of sweet caramel malt and a touch of citrus hops. Not very potent flavors. I’ve had amber ales with way more hops than this. Very watery.
M: Thin body with a lightly slick but fairly watery mouthfeel. Carbonation is soft enough.
O: Pretty boring (bad) for a pale ale and beer in general. Not something I really want to drink.

Pours an dark orange-red color with lots of bubbles streaming up and a creamy, tall, sticky off-white head. Good lacing.

A nice fresh, hoppy nose.

Taste: not much. Some grainy maltiness followed by woody, piney hops. Very clean finish (i.e., not much taste in the finish), with some grain husk showing up.

This is not a good beer. Very watery, very little flavor and what flavor there is isn't very pleasant. This tastes like water flavored to taste like an APA. I'm surprised this beer has gotten such high marks.

On my trip across this fine land of ours I made my way through the beautiful state of Utah. Utah is not known for their beer, quite the opposite. When I saw a couple local singles in the fridge of the gas station I stopped at, I figured I give them a go.

This pours a yellow straw color. The aroma is part caramel, part wheatfield and slightly fruity with some citrus. Flavorwise, it has some subtle hops with some cereal oat. It''s a bit watery - my guess in complying with Utah's ABV% regulations.

It's likely one of the best beers you can get in Utah, but that's not saying too much.
