3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally reviewed: 5/11/09. This is one of the "smaller" beers that I’ve had, but it was also one of the best looking. This beer poured a deep copper gold with a billowing white head on top. Retention was superb, and there was a sticky, lacy mess all over the glass edge. Very nice. Smelled grassy and sour. Some hints of lemon in there on top of the grassy hops.
Very tame beer right away, but as I continue to drink, this beer gets more hoppy and more enjoyable. Very well-balanced with plenty of biscuity malts in there, all mixing and jiving with the slight hoppy muscle. Drinkability is extremely high, as the ABV is very low. I could drink these all summer long. I was very pleasantly surprised by this "little" beer. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot, but it showed me a thing or two...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 Fl Oz bottle, drank outside Bryce Canyon on 6th May 2010. The bottle was obtained (along with some other choice brews) at Ruby’s Inn general store.
The beer was poured into my plastic toothbrush tumbler, it is all I had to use in the motel.
The beer seemed a whole lot better than the on-tap version I’d had a couple of days earlier outside Zion NP in Springdale.
The pale amber body seemed thicker and richer to look at and the off-white head stayed longer.
The aroma was hoppy and interesting and the taste was a good blend of hops and malts unlike the ’wishy-washy’ brew from before.
A lot better experience than the tap beer, missed the good food though, only had a salad with cheese this time. Also had an on-tap one: n tap in Oscar’s, Springdale (outside Zion NP).
An amber pint with a small/thin off-white head was brought to my table, it looked OK. The head left some lacing as I downed the beer.
The beer had a mid-range (for the USA) hop bite both in its aroma and taste.
It went well with my Sprimps and although the beer could have been sharper (cut throat, see what I did there?), I think the brewer has done a good job considering the handicap of keeping the beer below the 4%ABV Utah insists on.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Citrus, and hops for the taste. Dark caramel color with no head. Maybe due to the plastic cup it was poured in. I had this at Red Pine Lodge at the Canyons while skiing. I was told this was the number 1 pale ale for the SLC area. I thought it had a nice hoppy bite to it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: citrus and spicy hops, followed by toasty malt notes. Pours a light amber color, white head with average retention. Nice balance between citrusy and spicy hop flavors, and toasty malt. Slightly nutty, some caramel, and biscuit. Drinks like an English mild with a dose of American hops. Light-medium body, medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice amber pour with a mid-size head. Aroma is toasted malts, fruits, light citrus, some chocolate, and caramel in the aroma. Flavor has similar properties with the toasted malt and biscuit malt showing through and the fruit joining in. A nice round mouth. Solid.

12 oz bottle, fresh: resiny, citrus aroma with hints of orange zest along side the hop cone notes. Healthy, 3+ finger, ivory head. Bready, slightly bitter flavour with a toasty grain finish. Decent session beer, especially in Utah...
