3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Rhinehaus, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear orange-gold color, near the darker end of the spectrum, with a small off-white ring and film for a head. Notes of toasted malts, leafy hops, sugars, and straw - there isn’t much to this. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Uinta has some of the most straightfoward offerings of any brewery that bottles and distributes widely - maybe it’s the 4% restriction? - and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. In this case, it works.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is dark red with creamy white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, slight grain, hints of spice and a slight off note, some minerals as well. Taste is very watery with slight caramel and spice notes that don’t quite work, some slight biscuity notes with a hint of vanilla, finish very watery as well.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
wow. bad to an unreal level. watery and thin, completely flabby due to near zero acid, low hop rate and fizzy, disjointed carbonation. toast, caramel and toffee, etc., but the extremely watery texture and stewed caramel / celery / moldy fruit stew thing is totally off-putting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Smiths. Pours a light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is moslty lightly roasted malts, nuts, and light spices. The taste is also pretty light; some roasted malts, some odd sweet flavors, and overall a light crisp flavor. Decent.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a white head and a hazy amber body. Aroma of corn, hay, carmel and grass. Taste is slightly sour, corn and metallic. Fizzy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours clear dark golden-orange with a small yet persistent off-white cap, some lacing traces. toasted spicy maltiness, few well-dosed caramel and nutty malts, noble grass and savant pepper, soft rounded lager fruity notes, light earthy and floral notes. moderate carbonation, light body - never watery, dry crisp herbal-grassy-peppery finish. circumstantial appreciation: it’s the first day of spring and it’s sort of snowing. highly quaffable and very well crafted.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned. Poured clear, bright reddish-orange with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma picked up fruity and caramel notes with light spicy accents. The flavor found sweet caramel at the core with fruity notes, some spices, and light oxidation around.. muddled finish. Light-medium bodied and tacky on the palate.. OK, but not the least bit exciting.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not quite my thing, and kind of tastes like the leftovers of a yard sale. Typical Christmas type aromas. A little too sweet. Bottle.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a translucent copper with a short, slightly lacing white head. Smells metallic and clean. Flavor was malty and did taste like beer. Wasn’t great, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I’d read. Tastes slightly medicinal and a faint hint of candy. Finish was clean and sublte. Not the greatest beer I’ve had, but not the worst.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark amber to light brown.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain/cereal), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a note of decaying plums.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Quite disappointing. Not much malt or hop character in the nose and it has a rotting fruit odor too. Bland in the mouth with a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. A dumper.
