1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2008 Ugh, this taste just like Two Brothers Brown Fox Session Ale. It starts out like a typical Brown Ale but the aftertaste is like used/old chewing gum. I dont know if it is the difference in geography that one brewer calls it an amber lager and the other it is a mild brown ale but the taste is the same, putrid. This was included in my last shipment of Michael Jackson’s beer of the month club, it will be my last.

Features all of the aromatic offerings of a large pencil eraser. Pink rubber is also found in the taste. Thankfully, a bit of sweet malt softened the dry errant-comma-rubbing strangeness.

At least it tastes like a lager, where many Viennas taste like ales. 4% can ruin a style that is usually strong, but it does not seem to hurt a lager. Not a bad beer overall.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This may have had the most unpleasant aroma that I have witnessed. Something like feet and rubber bands. Completely put me off. Thankfully, the flavor did not follow suit; however, there was nothing ample to describe. Most distinct was the malt. A little dry finish.

The pour is a deep amber to copper color, the head prestigious in size, creamy in texture, and the leftover lace a nice fine latticework to coat the glass. Mostly malt in the nose, lightly fruit sweet, fresh and clean to the senses, the start is full of malt, and lightly sweet, top middling in mouth feel. Finish is perkily acidic, the hops pleasant to the palate, dry aftertaste, and a quite drinkable beer and at 4% ABV, something that would make a nice session beer. Ranks #700 on my current 1000 beer master list.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium amber color, small head. Aroma is malty and appley fruity. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are mild yet flavorful. Hops are also mild. Mild tasting beer, yet it does have some flavor to it. I do wonder how you can get ANY flavor out of a beer that’s limited to 4% alcohol. Nothing really good or bad to say about this beer. Drinkable but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
update 4/8/02: I just had a sample that hid this skunky unpleasant sour apple finis that makes me think its bad. Original Rating:soft pleasant aroma, burgundy in color, relativly transparent. creamier head then any utah beer i’ve seen till this point. lacking in both hops and malts but still refreshing. Uinta seems to do better with lagers
