Tap at Brian Head while snowboarding. Pours a deep copper color with a medium off white head. Aroma of malts, sweet malt, caramel, some citrus hops. Taste of some citrus, dark fruits, reminded me of an amber with some hop bite at the end. It was enjoyable and warming.

This beer not only embodies what a great session beer should be, it captures the essence of a great English Bitter. Stylistic or not, this beer is incredibly approachable and one that balances a great malt profile with carefully orchestrated hops. Congratulations to Unita for creating such a great beer under Utah brewing limitations.

<12 oz. bottle via trade with IrishBoy - Pours a clear amber color with an average size off white head. Aroma is light hops. Nice lacing. Has a toasted caramel malt flavor with a nice hop background. Thin palate. Light to medium body. A decent beer. Thanks Richard.

Body is amber with not much of a head. Aroma is a decent amount of hops, some caramel. Taste is fairly hoppy, with the caramel, a bit watery, but it’s not horrible, rating is a bit higher then it probably should be.

Very attractive color; an orange/copper color. Aroma mostly of malt. Taste was rather poor in my opinion. One of my least favorite pale ale’s tried thus far.

(08/2006. Draft). Too bad this beer isn’t bigger than 4% ... it deserves to reach a fuller potential. Aromas are very light, though there are definitely some hops back in there. Appearance is a murky orange-amber that makes you think twice about delving in (a lot o’ yeast in there, mother!). But the flavor is wonderful: full, malty, well-balanced with hints of citrus in there too. Overall, a much nicer quaff than one may have expected -- but then, as beer drinkers, we all know "don’t judge a book by its cover!" Too bad its comin’ in at 4% ... this would be GREAT at 5 or 5.5. But, at 4%, it is an easy drinker and a great session brew, showing again the UT brewers do a fine job with their restrictions.
