This review is from the bottle but I also just drank this on tap last week. Nice looking beer, tall fluffy one inch crown that reduced to a nipple. Heavy sweet hop aroma, ruby red grape fruit, I do hit ginger but it is faint, I only think I smell pine because I read it in the description. Aroma is good not great. Taste is crisp but not intense, highly drinkable. Woody peach flavour, hints of ginger, dusty finish. After taste lingers in a nice way. Beer seemed way better on tap but that might have been the company I was with. Brew is getting sweet as it warms. Why do I enjoy watching "Gold rush Alaska" so much. So easy drinking, Wish it was better.

Finaly a hoppy Christmas beer that is not just an IPA. Plenty of hoppy goodness, but with distinct ginger and some pine needle taste as well. Christmasy!

Aus der Flasche Getrunken (Direktlieferung). Leicht trübes orange-gold im Glas mit stabiler Schaumkrone. Die Nase erfreut sich an Weihnachtsdüften. Ziemlich leicht im Körper. Im Antrunk leichte Zitrusnoten, dann kommt aber milde Waldfruchtigkeit durch. Der Ingwer hält sich ziemlich zurück und es verbleibt zunächst eine gewisse Fruchtsüße und einer leichten Restbitternote.

Pours golden color, clear/slightly haze, with foamy white head. Aroma: intense citrusy/piny note, supported with hint of tropical fruits. Ginger isn’t noticeable. Flavor: bread, toffee like malt flavor, supported with notes mentioned by aroma. More intense flavor of pine (needle) steps forward in second half. Finish is slightly dry and bitter, hop bitterness is high, malt sweetness medium. Body also, texture is almost creamy soft, carbonation medium.

Oranssinkeltainen, kirkas olut runsaalla höttöisellä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa trooppista hedelmää ja esanssia. Maku samalla kertaa hedelmäinen ja raikas, jälkimaultaan hieman katkera ja mausteinen. Suutuntuma keskitäyteläinen. Varsin helppoa ja raikasta juotavaa, eikä tämä ehkä ihan joulunaikaan sovi, mutta toimiva tapaus.
