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.

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
High hopes for this bottle. Looks like any other pale lager with a decent head that does not fade. Smell is a little metallic. Not sure if this is really a pale lager, probably a little more developed compared to cheap American lagers. Yes, more like a pils or a premium lager. In addition to its refreshing taste there is this medium building old country pilsner thing happening in there. Finish is just that, medium length pils bite in back of throat. Though better in taste than most cheap pale lagers, does not have the mild civility so common in the better American pale lagers.
