3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and laced the glass well. Very pleasant aroma of resinous pine along with some notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is weak malt and caramel followed by some moderate hops bitterness that is fairly devoid of flavor and a far cry from the luscious resinous hops in the aroma. Dry at the finish. Medium bodied.
