3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very drinkable pale ale, although is quite sweet and not light but rather medium+ bodied. A bit tart complementary in flavor. Deep but not harsh nor "out of" bitterness in flavor, nice balance slighlty towards maltiness. Some fruity sweet, pine/spruce like notes in aroma and flavor. Pours pale amber with frothy white-off top, medium lasing.
