4.1/5  rDev -0.2%

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into dimpled mug.

Appearance: Slightly reddish copper with decent off-white head.

Smell: Caramel and sweet dark fruits. Maybe a hint of maple syrup and pine.

Taste: Sweet upfront with lots of dark fruits, caramel and maple syrup. But this is quickly overtaken by a large dose of bitter, citrusy and spicy hops. There is also a strong pine flavor on the finish, or maybe I should say it is a spruce finish, as it is probably from the spruce tips but the hops could be contributing.

Feel: Moderate carbonation with a fairly full body for a lager. Fairly smooth overall but the dry finish is a little harsh.

Overall: This is a very good strong, sweet and bitter lager that fits in nicely with the Oktoberfests of the season.
