Tap at the Tram Club, Snowbird, UT. Clear amber pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma and flavor are all malt, with just a touch of roasty nuts. Thin bodied. Highly drinkable, but not much going on.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a Lager Glass at 42°. Color is a deep golden that has a bit of amber. Carbonation is good producing a thin white head. Aroma is a slightly sour malt scent. It has a light body with a crisp light mouth feel. Flavor is light caramel and a touch of hops then a very light bitterness. After taste is clean leaving you with a smooth feel. Overall this is an easy drinking brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 3-26-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a nice copper color with a big and billowy off white colored head. The head has huge carbonation bubbles entrapped within, which pop over time to leave a good level of lace on the sides of the glass as the head recedes.
Smell – The smells is mainly of a roasted malt and a light amount of a toffee sweetness. Mixed with these are subtle aromas of a citrus hop and a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg spice.
Taste – The taste begins with a lighter roasted malt flavor with a touch of caramel. The caramel gets stronger more toward the middle of the taste, only to fade again slightly more toward the end. While the caramel changes in intensity the roasted malt flavor remains relatively constant throughout and creates a solid base for the brew. Toward the end, a bit of a bitter grapefruit citrus hop and floral hop flavors come to the tongue combining with the more roasted flavors of the brew to produce a lingering, lightly sweetened, and somewhat bitter roasted flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel - The body of the brew is on the thinner to average side in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner to average body and average carbonation are a nice compromise between the drinkability and lighter abv of the brew but yet still can uphold the roasted flavors of the beer.
Overall - An easy drinking and rather flavorful brew for only a 4 % abv brew. A nice session winter style lager.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of bittering hops, soft berries, lager yeast, toasted malt. Flavor has an herbal woody feel with the toasted malt and lager yeastiness cutting through. Medium-bodied, a bit on the weak side, though does have a semi-rich, earthy finish. Not bad stuff, but certainly better to be had.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, deep amber appearance with a small beige head and decent lacing. Muted, slightly vegetal, aroma saved by caramel in the background. Grainy flavors up front; turned sweet (as in honey and caramel) before getting to the aftertaste, where the sweetness lingered. Light-to-medium bodied mouthfeel, modestly hopped, with a short lived finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Roasted malt and stewed vegetation for a nose. Dark copper color. Earthy, starchy malt taste. Stalked veggies and some tin. Easy drinker all around. Reminds me of cheaper dark lagers. I too have fallen on the ski slopes of Utah, and drinking beers at elevation likely contributed.
