Hazy yellow gold with small white head. Malty aroma. Light body. Off dry mostly malty flavor. Not too much spruce. Still, drinkable and balanced. drsordr (2662) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2017

Tap at the brewpub. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma seems a bit evergreen. Med body. Flavor is pretty spruce with bready caramel support. Bitter enough finish. Nice. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2016

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. Ericular (1020) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2015
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. CamMoore (55) - Hawaii, USA - MAY 25, 2015
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.

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! tgncc (3132) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2014
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.
