3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

On tap at Docks Pub (base of Canyons Ski Resort). Served in a chilled pint glass and this may have had an effect on the aroma and flavor. Amber colored. Faint maltiness in the nose. Roasted malt and caramel flavors with a mild note of hops. A quality brew, even with the chill factor.
