(draft) Clear light copper body with medium head. Very strong pine aroma. Pine/grapefruit flavor, but not overwhelming. Nice carbonation keeps it nice on the tongue. Fairly dry finish. It’s good, but one can only consume pine for so long -- definitely not a session beer. Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2005
