Uinta Brewery begins canning craft beer

Beer » Uinta Brewery goes beyond the bottle — Tribune tasters say you can tell the difference

< Previous Page

Baba: Seven out of 12 testers correctly guessed which beer was canned and a majority of those preferred the bottle. Some said they could tell because the canned had "more of a metallic, airy taste," or felt the canned version was "slightly less bodied." One staffer thought the canned version had more carbonation, resulting in a "slightly sharper, crisper flavor and mouthfeel." Others dubbed the canned more flavorful and "effervescent."

Wyld: This beer was a little harder to pin down: Seven of 13 testers were wrong. What they thought was the canned sample was really bottled.

Hop Notch: Seven out of 12 picked the correct container. They said the canned was less aromatic with a slightly blander finish.

Cutthroat: The canned beer was easily detected: eight of 11 got it right and the same number preferred the bottle. One wrote that the traditional version felt "more familiar" and another called it "more zippy."
