State week month, week 1 Oct 2nd - 8th. State: Arizona.

One of the plethora of Arizona beers dcschiller sent me out of the goodness of his heart! Cheers Dave! I guess theyíre calling this Up River Light now per my can.

This beer looks pretty great in the glass. Itís a very pale golden color with a very large rocky white head.

The aroma is a lot of wet malt & Iím getting just a hint of lactic aroma... you know kind of yogurt-y, itís not a problem... itís just unexpected. Fleeting whiffs of herbal hoppiness are detectable at random intervals.

The flavor is pretty refreshing, the herbal hops are a welcome departure from the style, as is the sourness. The beer is lightly sour in a tart, earthy, lightly punchy, and yogurt like way. This balances well with the bright malt character. If this is a beer brewed with rice or corn then bravo to the brewer because this certainly seems like a malt only beer. There is a tad bit of alcohol hotness just before the finish.

You could convince me that this was a lightly soured Berliner Weiss in a blindfolded tasting. Perhaps I got an infected can, but if thatís the case itís a pretty good mistake.

Light gold pour with a foamy head. Aroma of light grain and citrus. Flavor is grain, a bit of lemon and hops. Not life changing, but not bad at all.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2011
12 oz. can from Total Wine - pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a one and a half finger thick white head. faint lacing. Aroma is herbal hops and citrus. flavor is lightly sweetened malt and citrus. Citrus lingers in the finish. Light to medium body. This beer is very citrusy for a lager. Itís not to shabby.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Courtesy of hellbilly. Can pours pale clear gold with thin white head. The aroma has light amounts of floral hop notes, cotton candy, some corn and an odd musty note. The taste is very thin and comes across neutral and watery with carbonation enhance tartness that is prickly and unpleasant, faint grainy malts and faint floral hops. Sort of a tart near water experience. Beer?

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Can pours pale gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy with notes of cardboard, corn, and some grassy hops. Flavor shows pretty much the same with a hint of apple. Overall body is light, sweet, crisp, and easy drinking. Not my style but I would put this in my fridge before a lot of itís pale lager brothers.
