4.46/5 rDev +13.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: light straw yellow color. Slightly hazy but mostly clear. A finger or so of a white head that leaves a little lacing
Smell: sweet lager smell. The pine and hops break through a bit but are not very strong.
Taste: starts of with big pine flavor. Not quite pine hops but more of a true pine taste. Bitterness is fairly present. This taste is played over a more subtle bready yeast taste.
Mouthfeel: not overly heavy. Fairly crisp for all the bitterness. Some bitterness lingers
Overall: not as unique as other shorts beers. But executed just as well as any. Delicious bitter and sweet balance. Another shorts beer I was disappointed to miss in bottle only to find on tap.
Serving type: on-tap

A very light yellow brew with lots of haze and very moderate lacing. Nothing remarkable. Small white head too.
Nice smooth aroma. Slight musty aroma. Lemon and orange. Peanuts with noticeable spruce tips. NICE!
Great dry earthy bitterness with good green after taste. Sweetness is well placed. Only the wet slimy after taste detracts, not greatly, but still detracts. Nice well rounded flavors, complex, deep, unique. You can definitely taste the spruce tips, both in flavors and feel.
Well done, Shorts!!! A great brew, not experimental, but well thought out and executed. Thanks abanton for the hookup, glad I finally got around to this one! Held up well too.

This pours a clear white gold with nice foam.
It has a light, grassy aroma which turns into a crisp lemony grass flavored hop profile with pleasant bittering and a delightful finish. This is spruce tips? Fantastic!
Bright, clean, crisp and delicious. A definite stand-out.
