In this blog, we are going to take another look at the the small brewery from Utah. If you read my earlier on their Uinta Brewery Hyve Honey Ale then you know a little bit of this brewery, let us get into the beer.
This beer is a clear golden color with no head to it. The smell is a little earthy or fresh air. The taste of this summer seasonal is very smooth and very light to make this beer very drinkable. It has a nice sweet carbonation with a slight citrus taste in this beer. There is really no aftertaste to this summer ale. It kind of reminds me of a kolish but I know it is not the beer style.
Here is a descripation from their website (www.uintabrewing.com):
Citrusy and thirst-quenching, this refreshing golden ale is highlighted by the use of unique hops.
Appealing Sorachi hops, an uncommon hop from Japan, balanced with lighter malts. Citrusy, fresh, clean. Sum’r Organic Summer Ale pairs well with summer. It is an easy companion to most foods on the summer grill, such as chicken, fish, and burgers. Pairs well with curries and spicy foods. Try it with sushi!
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, I am not a big fan of most Spring and Summer Seasonal beers. This Summer Ale from Uinta is a little bit better then their Spring Season, which is Uinta Hyve Honey Ale. I really did not enjoy this beer and here are my reasons. The first thing that turn me off about this beer is the light in body of it. It is very light in body to fit the hot summer days, which makes sense. I am a weirdo because I will drink some heavy and full body beers in the hot summers. I do not care what season it is. I love my big beers. This beer has more flavor then their Hyve Honey Ale but I would rather drink a pilsner. Overall, Uinta did a good job on this beer and it will sell to fans of Summer Seasonals and light body beers. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
