3.5/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
a: nonic pint, the beer is golden amber in color, topped with a light head, low retention
s: sweet, bready pale malts, fruity with some golden raisin, white grape, pear, and banana, delicate spruce blends well into mild, earthy hop aromas
m: carbonation light-moderate, body medium with a touch of sugary slickness
t: sweet pale malts to start turning towards crackery/bready grain flavors, candylike at times, a fruity edge gives golden raisin, earthy hop flavors with a nicely drying, mild bitterness in the finish, the spruce isn't exactly obvious - which is probably for the best
d: a nice enough winter warmer, unique and adequately satisfying, there's some good aromas and flavors present, but as a whole the beer is a little reserved for my preference
