3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a tulip. Pours clear caramel with a smallish tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are big notes of caramel and toasted malts, along with hints of fruit, perhaps strawberry, and touches of herbs and forest. The flavour is quite interesting; it begins moderately sweet and becomes more so, with woodsy, piney notes along with big caramel, brown sugar and some fruit. It closes with a moderate sweet finish that also has hints of earth, spice and bitterness. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Scots pine ale that pairs rich malty sweetness with a hint of piney woodsiness. The sweetness does become a bit much after a while, but it would make for a nice dessert alternative. 2013-02-21

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. This is a weird one. Very honey forward and wet wood with loads of earthiness. Quite sweet though with a spritzy bitterness to finish. Not my kind of beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home, bought from somewhere in Buckingham. Close to the sell-by date for what it’s worth. Orange-brown, very hazy. Smell of malt, bit of orange peel. Spruce is there but not to the fore. Lovely taste, very moreish. Sweet with a bit of vegetable savoury. Sweetish finish almost reminiscent of a Belgian Tripel. The beer certainly grows on me. Wouldn’t mind another - some other time. For tonight this is enough.
