3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slap-on-the-tongue tasty, really dry finish, some of the resinous bark is in the finish to go along with the pine needle aroma. Better icy cold than when allowed to come toward room temps. Poured from a can.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I would much rather drink this than session IPAís. It has the piney-ness of an IPA, but the Lager base smooths things out and makes it very sessionable. Much more so than a session IPA usually is, but it has a lot of the characteristics of an IPA that would be enjoyable. Really like this beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is earthy, grass, pine and floral. Taste is sweet with a light crisp tartness. Light bodied, smooth and a little sticky. Interesting.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grabbed this beer simply because it was in cans and I like bells. It pours a tea yellow, tastes of spicy dish water filtered through pine needles and lagered in a shoe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz 2016 can.
Pours with a slightly hazy, pale golden body topped by a generous, frothy white head tha has excellent retention. Plenty of sticky lacing.
Aroma: robust and complex for style, with lemony, grassy and herbal aspects.
Flavor: hop profile largely follows the aroma but this is also nicely bready. Well-balanced. Bold for style, yet not aggressive.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a mostly clear very pale, almost white color. Cloudy with fine particulate in there. Very thick, fluffy, firm head. About three fingers. Good longevity. Great retention, excellent lacing. Wow!
Aroma is pilsner-esque. More piney. Very fragrant.
Taste is very tasty. Hoppy, a little bitter, especially for a lager. A little alcohol as it warms. Some lemon and lemon zest.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. A little dry, a little oily. Slight alcohol on the finish.
Overall this is very good. Iím surprised by it. I like it, a lot. Hoppy, fresh, tasty. Iíd recommend it, and I would buy it again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a finger thick white head that quickly disappeared to a ring of bubbles. Aromas are clear and sharp of pine, lemon, and fresh cut grass.
Light mouthfeel, very refreshing. Snappy up front bitterness without being overpowering. More lemon and tangy citrus notes with evergreen resin. Good. Very good. Very drinkable and the rather large ABV is very well balanced. I find that most beers north of 6% ABV can be a booze bomb or devine, with little in between. This is the latter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from West Side. Pours a deep gold with a finger of foam. Grainy nose with a touch of honey. Saison-like grainy texture on the palate, wheat, malt and honey flavors. Well-balanced. Honey and light hops on the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden pour with big frothy head. Grainy aroma with citrus. Flavor was similar, grains, some grassy hops with a distinct citrus sweetness, maybe a little too much. Still, enjoyable and refreshing.
