A very good beer. It has a smooth spicy flaver that warms you up after a hard day skiing.

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

Donít know if its my cold, but im not getting a whole lot of an aroma of this, slight hop aroma. Nice appearance though, nice foamy head, lovely red amber colour.
Much lighter in taste than i expected, feels very light around the mouth, bready, biscuity flavours.

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

Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany brown color with a half-inch tan head. Aroma of malt and earth, like a meadow. Nice malty flavor, with a hint of roasted malts and and caramel. The beer has a nice hops balance. I’d like to pair this brew with a good lamb stew or maybe shepherd’s pie.

Was a little bitter for my taste. Donít 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.

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

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.

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.
