COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 (24Feb2003--re-rate) Much improved. Same positive comments on the flavor. More reasonable head and persistent effervescence this time. Still not outstanding, but not bad. (31Jan2003--12oz.bottle) first selection from my "beer of the month". The quintessential "average beer"; not much going on, but without major faults. Pours with an enormous (slightly distressing) rocky head, light amber in color, spongy, slowly receding, lacy. Beer has a deep amber color. Very light aroma; little to no hop presence, dominant crystal/chocolate malt. Effectively no real malt presence in the palate, except for a touch of the chocolate/crytal malts, fairly sweet, little to no bitterness. Despite the huge, rocky head, there is little real effervescence, giving the beer has a relatively thin mouthfeel. Utah brewers are hamstrung by the max 4% ABV limitation, but they nontheless usually try commendably to produce real beer.

Bottle. No clue who sent me this... maybe I bought it. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium head and a little bit of lacing. Looks rather boring. Toasty, malty nose with slight hop, but not much. Flavor gets much better with 2nd and 3rd drink. Nice and biting with a dry finish. This is a good and crisp beer that I believe fits the style well and is a fine brew. Body is of course light, but nice brisk carbonation. Good stuff.

Deer Valley Resort. Bottle. Nice reddish color with smell of sweetness to it. Malt was there along with some dried fruity taste. Not much of head retention. Thin mouthfeel. Not bad, but not great either

Clean and soft copper amber pour with two fingers of sticky dirty white head. Nose is grainy and bready with toasted malt and earthy notes. A light grassy quality and touch of sweetness show as well. Dry on the finish. Bready and toasty innocuous malt profile with a light hop character showing. Somewhat vegetal character.

Can poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Moderately hazed amber copper color. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and half a finger of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Toasty caramel. Light mineral with earthy lager yeast. Bready maltiness. Maybe a hint of apple fruitiness. Malty yet refreshing. 3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Toastiness and caramel are the strongest flavors. Mild mineral, earthy, and bready tones. Apple and pear fruitiness. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good richness and velvety texture, especially given the ABV. 3.5 D: Decent beer. Doesnt blow me away, but is easily drinkable. ★ 651 characters DavoleBomb, Feb 16, 2016
