Drinking on draft at skagway brewing during a cruise stop. Nice light blond beer. Went great with fish and chips.

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.

Tmoney99 (10445) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Draft sample. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate resin spruce hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate spruce bittersweet flavor with with a moderate bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This a solid beer.

PhillyCraft (3128) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Growler sample from Stacy after her Alaska trip. Pours cloudy orange with thin white head and lacing. Aromas of hops, spruce, wood, malts. Taste is moderately refreshing with spruce, maple, pine, and fruit coming through.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Rating from my backlog. On tap at the brewery. Hay-colored pour with a trim white head. Smells like Christmas -- loaded with juniper and pine. Sticky on the palate with sap. This was highly touted for the recipe’s history, but was probably their worst beer.

MaltOMeal (1090) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Sampler at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Nose is faint, but sweet spruce tips is noticeable. The taste is of a typical blonde; didn’t notice spruce tips in the taste. Mouthfeel is dry and bitter.

jtclockwork (7956) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Drank from a growler. Heavy on the palate though not that flavorful. Hop water melds into a nice piny finish, which is beer’s best feature. Overall, just okay. Some spruces, resins, maple and hay. Rated 8/15/02

Tap at GABBF. Pours a lightly clouded hay yellow with a strange greenish tint to it and a small creamy white head. Nose is sweet and earthy medicinal like with pine and a bit of wheat. Creamy moderate carbonated feel. Sweet and creamy smooth with earthy light pine and honey. The spruce shows, nothing like Short’s spruce tip, but definitely get the spruce and this is something I wish i could get locally...I would drink again.
