Bright yellow, clear with plenty of bubbles, and foamy, well-retaining, white head. Smells of light grains, grass, and lemon. Pure lemons, a bit sweet, a bit tart up front, with a mild rindy finish. Grassy throughout, a little bready or crackery as well. Fuller end of light-bodied, with low to medium carbonation, a little crisp.

Thin, thirst quenching. Not much going on.

Drinkable summertime beer. Appealing Sorachi hops, an uncommon hop from Japan, balanced with lighter malts. Citrusy, fresh, clean.

A step above adjunct "lite" beers, but only slightly. I get what Uinta is trying to do and I like the idea, just came up short. It does taste somehow fresher? and has a faint honey/lemon flavor that is nice, but at twice the price of adjunct lite beer it's hard to justify.

Light minerally hop and crackery malt tones form the subtle aroma.

Flavor adds in a hint of lemon, and a lightly resiny, bready, dry bitter finish. A little more bitter than I'd prefer.

Pale yellow in color. Fairly clear in appearance. Nice subtle lager flavor. Noble hop earthiness, clean simple pilsner malt. Nothing special. Overall, lacks flavor.

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

Very refreshing summer beer. Easy to drink with a hint of honey sweetness. Nearly perfect to style.

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.
