Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweeter malts, with light piney hop bitterness and some extra piney notes as if it was aged on christmas trees. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear amber with a large, dense frothy head. The head fades slowly, leaving behind a small amount of lace. On the nose, there are notes of spruce, lemon and pale malts, along with herbs and just a touch of earth. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout with pale malts, caramel and subtle hints of spruce and hops. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an interesting ale with a remarkable spruce aroma throughout, though it is a little one-dimensional and I tired of it quickly. 2011-11-25

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber, best by 03/15/12. Pours clear and orange, lively, with some red highlights, topped with a creamy 2-finger yellow-tinged head. Aromas of sweet malt and caramel, slight fruit, and faint pine needles. The flavor is sweet spruce needles and some sap/bark, and mild eucalyptus. Medium carbonation and body. Tasty; nothing amazing, but some nice subtle sprucey/X-mas tree flavor are present. I’d actually prefer if the spruce was more pronounced.

Subtle wood and unripe strawberries. Clear copper, thin yellow head. Fair amount of wood, but not much of anything else. A bit fizzy. Overall, it lacks intensity but is fairly enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of roasted, nutty and caramel, light pine and citrus for the hops, with wood and a hint of brown sugar. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear copper. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then the long finish is moderately acidic and bitter with a touch of saltiness. Palate is on the lighter side of medium,watery with a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. This is a very good drinking beer with the added touch of spruce tips. Could’ve used more I’d say.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Sugar Land Saucer. Clear amber-copper with a medium white head. Aroma of spruce, herbs, some caramel malt and light fruit. The taste is very spruce centered, almost overpoweringly so, and that adds a spicy, herbal character to the malt flavors. Medium bodied. I get it, but the spruce is just a bit over done for my taste.

Bottle from Total Wine. Pours reddish amber with minimal off-white head. Aroma of biscuit and subtle herbal notes. Flavors include more biscuit, highly metallic hops and chewy, bready malts. Medium carbonation and medium body. Not as complex as I anticipated.
