Uinta Crooked Line Tilted Smile

(Always drink responsibly.  Seek help when alcohol affects your life and the lives of those around you.  For readers of a legal drinking age.)

For a beer coming from Utah, which I erroneously believed to be a dry state, Tilted Smile by Uinta Crooked Line is not what I would have expected for a beer coming from Utah after learning it wasn’t dry.  Even though it’s become a little less dry in the last few years, I would still assume that Utah beer might be bland and weak.  However, Tilted Smile is neither.  Under a thick, frothy head that smells faintly of banana, a dark amber colored imperial pilsner tastes more like the malts found standard in a pilsner – crisp and mildly sweet.  This beer with 9% ABV/30 IBU is produced in a facility that is powered 100% by wind, so I love that Crooked Line doesn’t beat around the bush with its slogan: earth, wind, and beer.  Traditional techniques that are good for the earth, with wind for energy, make a tasty beer.
