4.15/5 rDev +12.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Best before date: 30th of April 2005...
Appearance: light amber, good clarity, thinnish layer of yellowy-white suds that quickly flatten to a creamy cap
Aroma: biscuity malt, hint of spruce, spiced cider, light hops
Flavor: mildly sweet initially, hint of dark malts, mellow woodsy flavor, spruce is detected in the background, finishes semi-sweet with an aftertaste of crystal malt and a breath of spruce
Mouthfeel: medium-full body, pert carbonation, smooth texture
Other comments: An absolutely scrumptious winter seasonal. The spruce is very subtle, not overpowering. Strangely, you can really taste/smell it if you clear your throat after swallowing a gulp of it... sort of a bouquet of spruce.
Serving type: bottle
