Foamy head. Vibrant white colour.Some quenching carb to start with leading to a relative flatness.Ripe fruit on the nose with a clean sour ginger quality.
Real individuality here and a back to basics feel. Can imagine Henry Thoreau drinking this on Walden pond. Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours an ever so slightly cloudy straw color. Finger of off-white head, settles in minutes with a little lacing. Aroma is mildly hoppy, bitter, mildly resinous. Flavor is hoppy, mildly bitter throughout. Soft-moderate carbonation, light body and crisp clean texture. A pretty good pale ale. tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2010
bottle. Pours golden orange with white head. Somewhat hoppy aroma, herbal and floral. Flavor is lightly hoppy, soft citrus orange and lime floral, but pretty balanced, good malt backbone and by no means a hopped up beer. Palate is medium to thin, although I wouldn’t go so far as to call this watery. Well it’s not the best pale ale I’ve had but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it sucks. It’s not bad, especially as a session given the lightness of palate and low alcohol. omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 12, 2013
A perfumed pale ale nose, this beer is lightly hopped and made for drinking. Soft on the palate with little bitterness. woodychevy (874) - - MAR 31, 2013
had from a bottle at zillies in ocracoke. suprised this one was rated so low. It’s 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 doesn’t 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.

Tap. Poured an amber color. Nice hop to malt balance. Easy drinking. Enjoyed this beer. sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2013
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Barely hazy golden-yellow; medium lacing. Aroma grapefruit/pineapple, bready, floral. Flavor is pleasant and clean but not overpowering; a little piney. Mouthfeel is a little thin and quite fizzy. For a 4% organic this is pretty decent. PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2011
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.

12 oz. can. Appearance: small white head that diminishes quickly, orange to golden yellow, clear, Aroma: lemony citrus, bread, caramel, hay, resin. Palate: light body, light feel, lively carbonation, slight bitter finish that lasts a couple seconds. Taste: malty sweetness at first, but mostly a light bitter taste. Overall, too bready for me and just not that enjoyable. ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2012
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: There’s 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 it’s 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, it’s practically a chugger. The light body and dry finish only help the drinkability.
O: Who needs Bud Light when you have this? This isn’t designed to be a Zombie Dust wannabe, it’s designed to be drank by the six pack, or with a good meal. Very enjoyable as long as you don’t expect explosive flavor.
