3.48/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
P: Medium brownish amber with 2 finger head that hung around for awhile
N: Mixed hops, piny accents, malt
T: Based on the nose, you'd think this would be a heavy hopped and pine tasting beer. Not so! The malt, piny accents, and blend of hops balance each other out well. The malt characteristics are the most prevelant in the end though.
M; This was medium bodied with a malty aftertaste. The hops and pine don't stay on the palate that long.
Overall, a good offering. I'd say worth buying a couple 12oz bottles to try out.

Pours a murky amber color with a two inch head. Lacing lingers on the glass. The aroma and the taste of this brew combines of toasted bready malts, slight fruity hop flavors and some spice type flavor. Medium body with some carbonation. Goes down smooth too. A decent ale, but nothing spectacular though.

A: Poured from a growler into a pint glass. Body is coppery-amber with an off-white/khaki-colored head. Good sheets of lacing left behind.
S: Some sort of spiciness over caramel malt. Ginger perhaps?
T: Modest cereal-grainy malt foundation, then some earthy spices: ginger and cinnamon come to mind. Reminds me of a gingerbread cookie, which I guess is appropriate for the style/theme.
M: Light-to-medium in heft with decent carbonation. Thinnish for the style.
O: OK. Nothing offensive about this one, but it doesn't blow me away either.
Serving type: growler
