Cool Nice honey color.. But taste is where this one excels, more pine raisin than tropical fruits, not really bitter, more full and some sweetness sneaking in, tropical fruits in the aftertaste, smooth feel and wonderful hints of fruit and fresh cut pine logs.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
10.4% ABV? I’ll BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR! Unfortunately this cost more. What a tragedy, particularly in these economically stressed times when a 30 pack of Hamm’s Special Light can be had for under $12! Think about it! Overall I would say meh or bah, or not. Roll with the Blatz, or Hamm’s and I daresay your liver AND wallet will thank me in the morning....

2016 bottle, a few months old when consumed. Pours golden amber with a 1" white head. Nose is caramel, floral pine, very nice. Taste is fantastic! Smooth yet hoppy. This is a great beer that goes down dangerously smooth for 10%+
