Thin, thirst quenching. Not much going on.

11 oz. bottle poured into a Sam's perfect pint glass.

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this certainly wasn't it.

This beer pours a very light and pale gold with a full head. The nose - which is fairly uninteresting - is a little malty with overtones of fresh hay.

The taste really conjures images of a farm field. Lots of hay, German malts, and an almost sweaty flavor. There is almost a rusty quality to the beer - something I might expect more in a red ale than this Blonde.

While I appreciate the crispness, dryness, and low alcohol content, the flavors are so offputting that I found this to be most unpleasant. However, I feel that this isn't a poorly crafted ale, hence I cannot legitimately rate it lower - despite my near thorough unenjoyment.

Looks kind of like beer, smells kind of like beer, and tastes kind of like a beer, but is missing flavor

This pours a semi-cloudy yellow color with a thick, frothy head. The aroma is weaker with a hint of wheat and citrus. The flavor is on the weak side, not a whole lot going on. Very smooth and easy drinking though. I would have figured a craft beer like this would have more flavor.

Pours a thin head on a clear light straw body.
The aroma is faint to non-existent... a little grain.
The taste is mild grain and lemon bitterness. Watery.
The texture is crisp.
Super easy drinker 'cause it's like water.

12 fl oz green aluminum can acquired at Wally's Wine in Westwood and served into a conical Samuel Smith's pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; I usually like Uinta's offerings.

Served cold, straight from the fridge, and side-poured as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger white colour head. Decent thickness. Okay cream. Above average (~3 minute) retention. No bubble show. No lacing as the head recedes.

Body colour is a clear translucent pale yellow; vibrance is decent. No yeast particles are visible.

Overall, it's decidedly standard fare for a blonde. I'm optimistic but unimpressed.

Sm: Pale malts, crisp clean barley, and generic floral hops. Straw. Light vague lime. Some lemon citrus - probably from the hops. Grainy. No yeast character or alcohol is detectable. A mild strength aroma.

T: Blonde malts, pilsner malts. Light floral hops. Clean and crisp. A bit grainy. Straw. Clean barley. No yeast character or alcohol is detectable. Quite simple, but decently put together. No complexity or subtlety here, but decent balance. I like it in a general sense. A bit of vague lime.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Not oily or biting. Not harsh. Clean. A bit crisp. Decent presence on the palate. Decent thickness and body. Doesn't feel custom-tailored to the flavour profile, but it suits it generally. Average carbonation.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but largely underwhelming. Not Uinta's best, but I see what they were going for. I wouldn't get it again. The whole Organic thing comes off as a bunch of gimmicky bullshit. I'm less than impressed. A forgettable low ABV beer with little to offer. I wouldn't recommend it to friends.
