Shorty review. 12 oz bottle good until 8/28/16.

2F+ head with good retention and lacing. Beer is an attractive bronze. Nose is mostly pilsner and caramel type malts and the taste is about the same. Maybe some pine left in the hops, but that's about it. Light bodied and medium carbonated. Drinkable enough.

UINTA PALE ALE 7/10/16

Another from the latest beer club shipment of four different. We get Uinta but I have not tried this one yet.

Best by 9/24/16, which could mean...anything. Could be two thirds of the way through its recommended lifespan, or not.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams English nonick.

a: Clear copper with a finger thick white head which receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Pear and apple.

t: Light fruit notes with a medium hop bite over a bready malt base. Dry finish.

m: Light to medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o; A good session pale, easy drinking and flavorful. Not to be confused with the Cutthroat holiday version pictured, which has double the ABV of this one.

A - Lovely red-orange body, clear, with a white head, lots of lacing.

S - Spicy traditional hop notes, pine and pepper. Bready malt core.

T - Tea and mild lemon malt notes, with crusty bread notes in the center, and bittering hop on the close.

M - Prickly carbonation, dry close. Session friendly with a clean finish.

O - A decent old-school pale. Bright and drinkable.

Poured from a freshness dated 12 oz. can: clear, reddish-amber with a foamy, white-head. Unfortunately, you have to open the cardboard box to see the freshness date stamped on the bottom of the can; this defeats the purpose of a freshness date unless you open the box at the store...well now.....In any event, the "drink by" date is a week away.

The aroma is somewhat earthy and malty but does have some spicy hops in the mix.

It may not be fresh but the flavor seems fresh enough; there is a surprising resiny hop bite followed by a mellow malt profile with caramel highlights.

Perhaps the weakest part: the body is light and a little too watery, though there is a nice, lingering malty sweetness on the palate. The carbonation is restrained.

I really wish this ale was fresher as I think it would be an excellent, low-alcohol pale ale. While the ale did taste fresh there was a hint of staleness that I can only attribute to age. Next time I am just going to have to open the box at the store and check one of cans before buying.

Let's start off and say, this beer is a very good flagship crafted beer. I think a lot of hop heads and their palates might over look a beer like this. This beer is good, very well crafted and fits the APA catagory quit well. Very smooth drinking, not to hoppy, not to bitter and goes down very nice. On the nose, very tropical flavors coming through. Grapefruit, woodchips, light citrus, orange peel, very little dankness, amber honey, pine and malt backbone. It has a dry finish and goes down very smooth. Overall, very good beer in this craft beer world. Thumbs up to this craft beer.
