2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma has a little spice, pine and a hint of caramel. It pours a light brown color with very thin white head. The taste is slightly sweet up front but fairly bitter overall. The bitterness is very one dimensional though, all pine covering up most of the hop character. The body was medium to light bodied and fairly thin. Overall a little disappointing because of the lack of hoppiness but for somebody that loves pine this beer is full of it.
