The aroma is surprisingly weak, but some light, caramel-like malt is present, along with light pine and citrus with a touch of woodiness. The light tan head is very long-lasting; the body is a dark reddish amber. The flavor is very malty with roasted malt and bread crust, which becomes a little sweeter towards the finish; there are some flavorful, spruce-like, resiny hops. The carbonation and bite are agreeably moderate; a woody, husky tingle hangs around; and there is considerable dryness from the alcohol.

Overall, quite bitter and dry but stimulating and flavorful. I found the aroma a little disappointing but was otherwise pleased.
