A slightly hazy golden yellow-orange color with a thick shock-white head on top. Excellent retention and lacing. The smell is fruity, orange mostly, backed by lemon and wheat. A strange mustiness looms lightly in the background, but not too badly.

A little watery in mouthfeel, which definitely takes away a bit from some good flavors. The 4% ABV is noticeable in that it seems to lack body. As for the taste, it has a very light bitterness that attempts to give this one some character, but falls short and that musty wheat taste prevails. The citrus can't seem to stand up to it either, making for a rather disappointing overall experience. What citrus is there is like an underripe orange, not quite at its full flavor potential. It finishes dryish, with a wheaty aftertaste that is a bit distracting. The drinkability is high with it at the low ABV, but the flavor just isn't quite there. Not a terrible beer, but I probably won't look for this again. I enjoyed a few of their other ones a lot however, so I will still buy others that I see from Uinta.

Bottle that poured a plae golden color with a large frothy white head. Aroma is floral and grassy hops a little bit of lemon zest is present. Biscuity malt.
Taste is the same. Some sweet biscuity malt, followed by some mild grassy and citrus hops. Small slightly metallic aftertaste.
It's a smooth drinking beer, with some lively carbonation. A little watery. Drying finish. Not a bad session beer but nothing I'd ever seek out again.

Pours a clear orange tinged golden color with a small, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of bright citrus hops.

Tastes of the hops upfront with a decent malt backbone. Hops lead off with citrus and grass notes. Not particularly bitter. Malts come in and a little grainy sweetness along with some bread notes. Everything is very light and the beer comes off as a little bland.

Mouthfeel is light with a small amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a mediocre beer that I would pass on.

Lighter than your average pale ale, hence the "extra pale" label. A golden color with a white fluffy head. Mild hop aroma of citrus/pine. Very mild but balanced flavor of light malts and hops. Nothing offensive or uneven in the flavors, but nothing distinct or substantial either. Light body with a mildly hoppy finish. Session beer or not, this lacks character or depth. An English bitter would at least have some biscuit or caramel quality to it, so the comparison to it based on gravity is not quite apt. I cannot recommend this even as a mild session ale. It's more like the Busch of the craft-brew world, except that it aint cheap. Without altering the specific gravity I would like to see the grain bill tooled with a bit in favor of some specialty malts, or perhaps use a little dry-hopping with some earthy Kent Goldings, or both.

Hmmm, I wonder if this bottle just sat around too long (why do I STILL buy bottled/canned beer from outside the tri-state area? It never holds up).

Anyway, really average beer at best, with hardly any hop profile (the Uinta site claims it's "aggressively hopped". Not).

The malt character is definitely very good, and mouthfeel is also very nice with very good lacing.

I've had other Uinta bottles what seemed fresh so I dunno what happened with this beer?

Moral of the story: Buy local!
