3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a clear amber color with a very minimal amount of lacing that lasts. the aroma is fruity and flowery with hints of caramel and slight malts. the aroma is much better than the flavor, which is seriously lacking in my opinion. As I drank more, I noticed a grassy aftertaste as well. It’s smooth, just not to tasty. Not bad, just not very good, doesn’t stand out at all!

smells of caramel covered hop buds, must, and tangerine zest. amber color. Malt balanced hop flavors over a weak 4% body..but, I suppose it’s not their fault its 4%, its those stupid mormons who think its god’s intention to limit the arts in the name of ignorance. Damn, what a great god he must be...so intuitive and all. Anyway, for 4%, its packs some good flavor...just lacks body to make it enjoyable.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2006 Nice copper color, thin head. Clean with slight malt. Hoppy and a litlle bit fruity, finishes dry.
I suppose this is just the 3.2% version of Uinta’s Angler’s Pale Ale.

hoppy malt nose, looks great, deep copper body with a beautiful lacey head, excellent ballance in the flavor between the hops and malts, hop bite in finish, definatly a good pale, if I lived in Utah I’d probably drink a lot of this, I dig the label.

a moderate hoppiness in the aroma, and a light to mildly light amber color, with loosely webbed bubbles. slight fruityness flavors your mouth. but as far as living in utah and having this beer easily accessible i enjoy its company quite often.

Bottle @ some wicked cowboy joint in Kanap, UT. Amber colored, medium white head. Good hoppy nose backed up by some biscuit malts. It has a delightful bitter finish with a citrus touch. Rather good.

I went into a grocery store in Richfeild looking for local Utah beers and found this one. It looked as if 4% is the ABV limit in Utah as all the beers, including Midnight Sun’s Cohoho IPA were 4%. Looks, smells and tastes like a multitude of other APA’s i’ve had. Pretty good and from the looks of the utah selection, I’d probably drink this often if I lived there.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught: Had this on a recent vacation to Moab at Fat City. The waitress who was serving us told me it was a porter. As soon as it arrived, I knew it was no porter. Nonetheless I was pretty impressed. Amber, clear filtered color with small off white head served very cold. Aroma: juicy hops (cascade for sure, possibly more); slight sweetness, fruit and malt stay in the background. This has a solid flavor as well - bitter hops immediately hit the tongue, followed by malt and caramel with a bit of sweetness, ending bitter. Just a slight amount too much carbonation. Better than I expected for my first Utah beer.

This pale ale pours with a nice, clear deep amber body topped by a medium thick to thick, off white head with lots of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet yet slightly bitter and hoppy with a malty background and an odd undertone. The flavor is rather well-balanced at first but becomes more bitter with a slight msltiness. The flavor is a little weak. Medium bodied, relatively smooth and slightly dry.
