4.1/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Initial head was somewhere around an inch after an aggressive pour. body is like a light lager, crystal clear light straw yellow, Powdery white big bubbled head floating on top.

Smell is bitter malt. Spruce and pine come to the forefront. Light bodied malt only slightly comes out. The main aroma is that bitter spruce/pine.

This thing is crazy drinkable. Light slick malt kind of reminds me of a British pale. No real bitterness at all, and I like it. Its totally different than hoppy pales, its a smooth malty pale that I actually really enjoy.

I enjoy this thing, the mouthfeel is slick and just crazy drinkable.

Serving type: bottle
