3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed 12/03/2012. 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Pours a medium straw color with decent clarity. The head is a four finger white color with lowish retention for the ABV. The center of the head retains itself more thoroughly than the edges. Lots of patchy lacing, too.
S: Thereís the typical grapefruit aroma expected from Cascade hops, along with some lemony esters. As it sits in the glass, the crackery pilsner malt shines through slightly. Not an assertive aroma, but itís likable enough.
T: The taste is very simple, but the few dimensions it features are pulled off well. Initial lemon and grapefruit flavors, before being finished off by lightly sweet maltiness. A very good blonde ale, though hardly extreme or mindblowing.
M: It could be a little less watery in general, but this is so easy to drink. Hell, itís practically a chugger. The light body and dry finish only help the drinkability.
O: Who needs Bud Light when you have this? This isnít designed to be a Zombie Dust wannabe, itís designed to be drank by the six pack, or with a good meal. Very enjoyable as long as you donít expect explosive flavor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fresh tasting and very hoppy pale ale. The aroma is like cedar wood, green apples, organic soil, and medium malts. This one has a nice bite to it and borders on the IPA level in aroma and appearance. Taste is fullfilling yet doesnt finish as strong as I would have hoped. but this is an easy and ejoyable one to drink from the state of Utah.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden, yellow, small white head. Orange citrus, fresh hay. Light bitterness initially, countered by mid sweetness that compromises the majority of the taste. Light body, some acidity-driven effervescence. Mild carbonation. Pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
had from a bottle at zillies in ocracoke. suprised this one was rated so low. Itís a decent pale ale- kind of mellow. good session beer. Pours a light orangy color- slightly hazy. decent head. nicely balanced- bit of hoppiness to the finish but mellow. could have a bit more hop to it, but it doesnít need it. flavors stand up on their own. Had it in the same session as Lagunitas Pale- totally different, but not worse, necessarily. Just a bit more subdued. Like Utah.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Meh followed by yuck. Some promising features but then metal flavors all over everything. Maybe skunked, but got two other beers from this brewery (canít image Utah ships out much beer) at a bottle shop and they were fine. Pass

Bottle. Not much happening here. Some citrus and caramel. Balance and carbonation is OK. Finish is weak.

A little hops, a little barley...nothing special. Yellow color, decent creamy head. Below average.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance was clear golden copper with 1 finger creamy diminishing head, no lacing. Aromas was sweet honey malts and citrusy grass piney hops with estery yeasts. Taste was sweet malts upfront with lemony bitter grassy piney spicey mild hops in the back. Palate was smooth creamy carbonation with weak light body and average bland finish. Something amiss...
