4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells very good. Sweet caramel. Taste is pretty decent. Not real sweet, but a full malty amber flavor. A little grassy flavor, most reminiscent of a bock. Pretty good stuff, esp. for 4%

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at a mexican restaurant in downtown SLC, I forgot the name. Very clear amber with no head really. Aroma is slightly malty and floral. Some caramel and floral hops in there. Overall light on the malt. Lighter bodied with moderate carbonation. Washes down ok with dinner. Pretty middle of the road though. It’s a beautiful state scenery-wise but I’m glad I live elsewhere.

this one reminded me of a amber ale or middle of the road....not alot of floral hops and even backbone of malty crunch. dont know what makes it their ’superior’ ale. every one of their beers has exactly 4%abv??? strange mormon brews.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear and light brown with a frothy tan head that lasts. Spicy aroma of malt and hops. Interesting combination of flavors with a bit of chocolate, some toasted malt, hops, vanilla, and a little acridness. Thin body.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not very hoppy, not very malty. Decent coloration, not much of a head, too damn watery. Not a great offering.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer was veryd dissapointing. Although I could taste the hops, which were not at all floral, they were not well balanced with the sweet malt.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
medium body with a lasting hoppy finish. Floral grapefruit with a musky malt background. a good amber ale with a good kick of dry hoppying.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
looks like every other fucking utah beer, dark malt with some bitterness, I think it was a bad sample though, but I can't complain because the ladies at goldminer's daughter hooked up the sample for free because it was the end of the barrel

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a thick head, dark amber. Smells mildly hoppy. Very mild taste, not really anything special. Palate is bland. No substantial aftertaste, resulting in a middle-of-the-road ale. Not really superior.
