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. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2012
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. douglas88 (9632) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2008
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. czar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
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. solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Not quite my thing, and kind of tastes like the leftovers of a yard sale. Typical Christmas type aromas. A little too sweet. Bottle.

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. kraddel (8894) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Pours clear blonde . Smell is sweet, bit chemical malts . Taste is bitter , chemically sweet . Lager-typical, but a bit week . nimbleprop (8761) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2007
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. drfabulous (8591) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 19, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Some toffee and caramel and a bit of vanilla. Very drinkable overall. radagast83 (8476) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. Not a whole lot of aroma comes from this beverage, slight malt smell. Flavor is a little to be desired. Malty, hoppy, flavor is a little too watery for my tastes. Not awful, just not great.
