Nice clean tasting winter lager with a hoppy taste at the begining that changes to a smooth taste at the end.

Definitely pine, slightly like Bell’s winter ale but generally nothing special, average, not worth more than $1.00 a bottle.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. Light orange with red-orange hues. Nice two finger head from a medium to hard pour. Smell is of pine, citrus, and biscuits and maybe a touch of scotch. Taste is pungent hops and smooth toasty malt...some spice. Good beer

Was a little bitter for my taste. Don’t know what the alcohol % is, but it must be high. I had 3 or 4 pints of this at the sports bar and it hit me pretty hard.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours medium reddish-brown with a beige head. Spicy with some malt and caramel sweetness with a nice slightly toasted barley finish, but suffers from the typical redhook thin body. And I agree, it has a weird metallic feel to it that really detracts from an otherwise okay brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel appearance. Minimal head. Spicy pine hop aroma. Slight roastiness. Medium body featuring orange zest, tasty malt, and that subtle pine hop note. A crisp and refreshing beer. Amazingly I found a gas station cooler that sells bottles for 99 cents.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brown color with a thick head light lacing. The aroma is mostly of malt with a slight touch of hops. The taste is spicy and hoppy with a nice malt background. The mouthfeel is full.

Part of my Target holiday beer buying spree. Poured dark red, medium to full body. Sweetish flavor and rich tasting.

The best thing about this beer was the color. Taste was not remarkable, slightly metallic. Not a beer for me.
