Draft - Real cloudy orange color. Very mild spruce smell and only a little hop notes. Have a good mouth feel to it, not much hips or malt either. Well done. The spruce flavor is very mild and not pronounced on this blonde.

On tap at Skagway Brewing Company. Best one here, by far! Maybe I just bit on all the hype from the locals recommending this one, but it actually is a really solid beer. Creamy, tasty, sweet candy aroma. Fresh and fun. Really tasty for the style.

On tap @ Skagway Brewing in Skagway. Nice blonde ale. Good sweet malt notes. Don't get much spruce. Flat head with small white bubbles. Cloudy orange gold color. Good malty ale lots of sweet flavors. I would like more spruce flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2014 On tap at the brewpub. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt golden orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim head that didn’t leave any lacing. The smell definitely had the piney sprucy notes - subtle, smooth, delicate and bringing in a light citrus aspect that was good. The taste replicated the smell. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Overall, this was a well done herbed/spice ale that does the trick to hit the spot!

At brewery. Strong aroma of pine needles. Flavor of fruit, berries, malt, and of course pine needles. The finsh is pine, citrus and touch of diacteyl. Medium body. Clear gold color. Pretty good overall.

really enjoyed this one. it has a nice citrus in the foreground that was clean. the taste of the spruce fell in the back and it just down very well all the way.

On tap at the brewery. Their featured beer. I thought would be a little better since the rest weren’t bad at all. I would put it in the middle of the pack for them. Number 1 being their salmon sandwich.

This is the best blonde I have ever had. The aroma is very appealing, and has the unique taste of the spruce tips. The taste is unlike anything, as the beer is unique, but delicious and very palatable.

On tap at the brewery. Pours brilliant golden with white head. Aroma is very fruity: cranberries, apples and cherries. Body medium and crisp. Taste fruity, floral, woody and some caramel malt. Finish is long and fruity. Overall this is interesting brew.
