3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a mildly hazy straw color. The head billows vibrantly at three fingers high, with a white shade. Retention isn’t fantastic, but the lacing it leaves behind is fairly prevalent.
S: Rather simplistic, as expected. Pale malts help back up mild hops, seemingly both German (grassy, sulfury) and ’Merican (herbal, citrusy) in their qualities. Serviceable, no more, no less.
T: Like I said, simple. It’s little more than pale malts and a kiss of hoppiness. To be fair, there hops aren’t entirely one note, hitting a middle ground between grassy noble and citrusy ’Merican flavors. There isn’t a ton of flavor, but it’s not quite ’watery’.
M: Heavy and viscous. No wait, I meant light and crisp. It’s a bit too tingly and astringent in feel, though. High carbonation is expected, making it very easy to drink.
O: This is far more conducive to simple, mindless drinking than sitting down and reviewing it - because really, there isn’t much to review here. Still, quite decent for a 4% lager.

Nice lager, adequately hopped, good aroma, altogether a fine thirst-quencher. The artwork is very nice indeed.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Appearance: light gold pour, short white head quickly vanishing, no lacing. Aroma: scant aroma of some cereal grains, white toast, hint of lemon grass. Taste: mineral water, light grass, chewed up aspirin, hint of saltine cracker. Finish: thin, with a lingering unpleasant minerality. Notes: WTF, Uinta? Fell in love with Baba Black Lager and every other beer from this place has been a disappointing turd. Bottles are cool, artwork and design are excellent, and that one beer out of the 8 or so I’ve tried has been great. What is wrong with this picture?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. A straw colour with a fast fading white head; fresh grassy aroma; grassy taste with some honey-like sweetness and a sour grainy body; and a clean sharp bitterness to finish. A decent pilsner style lager with a more assertive finish than most.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed light golden-yellow color with a nice two finger head of billowy white foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is biggest of a mix of wheat and graininess along with a decent showing of a lemon smell. Along with these aromas are some light smells of herbal and floral hop nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a lighter biscuit and cracker malt flavor along with a little bit of grass hop. As the taste advances some lemon comes to the tongue along with hints of grapefruit. The flavors all remain quite light throughout, and with a little bit of an herbal and hay flavor that arrives on the tongue at the ever end, a rather light and crisp but somewhat lightly funked flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light with a carbonation level that is slightly above average. While the light body was nice for creating a crisp taste, a little thicker body may have been better for the hop and funk. Even so, overall it was pretty decent, and for the abv, I think they did it right…
Overall – A crisp and refreshing beer that is quite sessionable at only 4 % abv. While the flavors are light they are overall rather nice with the brew being a good one for those summer picnics or maybe while watching a little baseball.
