Thanks to KAggie97 for the beer. The can looks simple, but good. The beer in the glass is quite dark, not much foam. Strong and modest alcoholic aroma. Tastes dry and strong, modest malty, a bit old. Scratchy-strong finish. Not bad!

Wow, Pine belt never tasted so literal. Hints of pine, resinous and delicious. I am extremely impressed with this beer. Thick head, toasted hops and dark amber color are all you need to know this is something special. Different indeed, I urge all to try. Good Job guys....Gig em!

16oz can to imperial pint glass. Pours cloudy amber with a moderate sized white head, some lace. Smells mellow citrusy, slightly bitter, slightly sweet. Tastes malty sweet and caramelly up front with a slow building and lingering hop bitterness. Very nice flavors, solid pale ale, nice hops. Medium body, good carbonation.
