Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, frothy light beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is pine and earthy, spicy hops, caramel and toast malt with light pear fruity esters. Flavor is lightly sweet malt, medium hops and bitterness, well-balanced though the hops edge out a little, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a birch beer colored red with thin lacing head. Aroma of sweet smelling earthy woodiness. Slighty bitter with a bit of a harsh yet sweet maltiness lending itself to a nutty taste and then ending with a wooden taste. A bitterness lingers afterward.

A deep red brew. Good head and carbonation. Good mix of sweet caramel malts and hop balance. Lots of yeasty character. Sediment in the glass. Medium body. Some fruity qualities, but not too much. A decent overall brew.
