3.26/5 rDev -14.7%
This poured out as a decent looking brownish red color. The head was cream colored and had a light amount of retention and not much lacing at all. The smell of the beer is earthy with some decent malt aromas and spice. The taste of the beer is pretty mild, there is malt sweetness and spruce to bitter the beer up a little. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, nicely carbonated and drinkable. Overall it was a nice beer to try but I wouldn't have to seek it out again.

Pours a dark brown/burgundy-ish color with a thin head into my glass. It's brewed with red spruce tips and extremely low in ABV.
Can only be described as soft, "earthy" and non-threatening. Hmm. It doesn't use hops though.
Drinks like a nice herbed or spiced ale. A spot of caramel here and there with some spiciness. The spruce is hardly noticeable.
Not sure how to rate the mouthfeel but it's possibly over-carbonated. All this does is push the alcohol further into the taste buds creating a burning sensation.
Not the best they've produced. Worth a shot if you're into non-conventional beers.

22 oz bottle picked up at Warren Store. 2012 vintage.
Pours a clearish chestnut amber with a small cream colored head. Earthy and leafy aroma with bready malt and mild sweetness and a touch of cinnamon. Flavor tastes like a traditional ESB crossed with an exceptionally woodsy Anchor Xmas beer. Doughy malt body, earthy hops, and spruce (?), cinnamon and pine. Medium thick, creamy body with a dry, woodsy finish. Adequate but not worth seeking out.
