The marriage of spruce and hops in this assertive pilsner is a match made in heaven. This is brewing genius...one of my favorite beers. Or maybe I’m just a sprucehead...or a sucker for Picea pungens power. Who knows?

Aroma of spruce. The beer is golden with a small head. Flavor of pines and perfume.

Pours a thick hazy deep amber color, half inch of off white head that stays around. Freaky muted minty aroma. Flavor shows loads of heavy, minty spruce flavor, and a distinct medicinal quality. Palate is thick and syrupy, though finish suprisingly clean. An interesting brew, but not very drinkable or enjoyable.

shorts smagning med klubben. Det er nok den bedste i aften. Uklar gul/orange med et hvidt skum. Masser af "natur", gran nĺle, skov, harpiks, rosmarin, sřdt med masser af humle. Guf guf!

750 ml bottle . Pored a nice trasperent gold nice fizzy head. Aroma was strong a ton of hop and pine. A wild array of flavor to much to describe. I would definitly drink one again

Bottle. I love imperial pilsners. LOVE them. This beer really disappointed. The smell was awesome, crisp, piney, lots of fresh wheat notes. On my first sip I was crushed. It tasted like a tree branch, with strong sappy notes and wet bark. The finish was almost metallic but really just reminded me of when I was young and would twist and turn at a branch off the christmas tree until my hands were just raw with the scent of pine wood and sap. No malt character detectable, as the hops and bitters just dominate in a strange strange way. Seems like they used a weird sugar or something.
