Pours a hazy golden color with light foamy head and mildly sticky lacing. Enjoyable hoppy flavor and refreshing too. Organic ingredients and made with renewable power, so can be considered a "green" beer.

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a touch of haze and a moderately strong effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy ivory foam. Not bad at all!

Smell: a bit dry with a definite graininess. There's an earthy, noble hop quality here. Overall, perhaps not my favorite, but not bad.

Taste: very grainy and dry with a little bit of biscuity character that I don't love. Hops, again, are earthy and noble, and bitterness is good for the style. It's not bad, but again, something about the biscuit and the grain don't work perfectly for me.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a very good level of carbonation and a springy, satisfying creaminess. I like it.

Overall: this is a pretty refreshing and drinkable beer, although it isn't perfect. I really do like the quaffability here, though; it could be a good barbecue beer.

On tap at The Blind Tiger, NYC.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a fruity sweet orange hop with a light caramel malt.

The taste consisted of vibtant upfront orange and citrus hop that evolved into a dry grapefruit-like hop. There was a good malt backbone with a doughy finish.

The mouthfeel was of average fullness for the style.

Overall a tasty, fruity and very easy to drink ale.

The beer pours a hazy gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a simple pale and biscuit malt scent along with a mild hop nose. It's light with a touch of bready character. The taste is decent. It has a smooth pale and biscuit malt character. It's light and refreshing, yet full flavored and highly drinkable. It goes down easy with a touch of hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a no frills pale ale that's certified organic and quite delicious.

Golden in color. Fairly clear in appearance. Very light tropical fruit hop flavor. Not terrible, but not outstanding either. Works in a pinch if you need a light, crisp "hoppy" brew.

Wyld Extra Pale Ale
Uinta Brewing Company
Style: American Pale Ale (APA)
ABV: 4.00 %

LOOK: Pale orange colored brew with fine clarity. Active carbonation rising to an inch of pillowy foam. Leaves some lace down the glass.

SMELL: Aromas of orange, lemon, grass, hay and herbs are all there in full effect. Inviting aroma of pale ale goodness.

TASTE: Orange and grapefruit zest, mild tropical like note, resinous hop notes, grass, and a light caramel base. Very flavorful with loads of hop notes packed into a 4% pale ale. Impressive showing.

FEEL: Light bodied, well carbonated, even finish, clean, it is what it should be.

OVERALL: A great tasting pale ale from Uinta brewing. Their success in brewing seems to be the subtleties and solid flavor of all their beers. This is no different; a world class pale ale especially adept for sessions.

12oz Bottle from the Wegmans Dewitt NY for $2

Appearance - Clear gold colour with a large size frothy and fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, hops, grapefruit, pineapple, apricots

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and caramel mixed with hops. There is also some pineapple, apricot and grapefruit.

Overall - A solid easy drinking APA. Uinta is turning out to be one of my favourite brewers.

Bottles July 2009; Sampled March 2010
An aggressive pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces three fingers of frothy, off-white colored head. The beer is a gold hue that shows an almost brilliantly clear, light straw-gold color when held up to the light. The aroma has a nice citrus hop component to it that mixes pleasingly with a floral, peach like fruitiness. Underneath this expressive hop character is a hint of cracker-like malt character. Based on the nose, this is my kind of Pale Ale.

Fairly dry tasting, which really subdues the expressive hop frutiness found in the aroma. The beer is quite light as well, which makes this eminently quaffable and something I would mind as a cool refresher on a hot Summer's day. Herbal hop notes and a touch of pine, as well as solid bitterness all play a big role here in the flavor. I am not sure that they are bigger than the citrus / fruit flavors, but b/c these are so subdued as compared the the aroma, I seem to notice the others first. Still there is a solid hop character that contributes flavors of tangerine, expressive lychee, and even some floral peach notes, each of which becomes more apparent as my palate adjusts and as the beer warms up. Cracker like grain notes become more noticeable as the beer warms, and there is also a soft, honey-like grain quality that comes out as well; this last is definitely accentuated by the floral hop notes.

This is actually a pretty damn solid Pale Ale; I wasn't expecting much here, but this is actually quite good and I would happily while away a hot afternoon with a couple bottles of this on hand. I could wish for just a hint more body and malt character perhaps (as this would boost the fruity hop flavors), but then that would kill how light, refreshing and easy drinking this beer is.

12oz. bottle poured into a nonic.

(A)- Pours a pale orange color. Produced a small white head of froth, Minimal lace.

(S)- A nice drying pine needle and a subtle yeasty lemon and orange citrus.

(T)- Some lemon and orange citrus with caramel malt. Some pine shows up, but quickly flows into a heavy yeast spiciness.

(M)- A good carbonation level. The balance is fair, but kind of strange with that heavy yeast bit in there.

(D)- Not bad, but perhaps a tad disjointed.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours yellow with a medium fizzy white head, good lace.

S: Bit of a soapy aspect, green with some grapefruit.

T: Noticable citrus, lemon and pink grapefruit. Has a somewhat sweet hop character. There was a gorgeous pilsner malt finish which I really enjoyed.

M: Light-bodied, it's 4% but it carries it well. Never watery or thin, frothy and smooth.

O: A very solid pale ale, good hop flavour and a true session beer, my first from Uinta and their ilk.
