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

3.43/5 rDev -12.5%

32 oz. howler poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Clear golden body. No head. Looks flat.
Smell - Very pungent spruce. Lightly spicy and woody in the back. Some grassy hops, too.
Taste - Hops are stronger than spruce up front. Pilsner malt. Spruce builds up and turns into that woody spice that I got in the aroma. Very bitter finish.
Mouthfeel - Flat as hell. Very bitter. Makes it seem sluggish.
Overall - Excellent spruce flavor. Wish it had been carbonated.
Serving type: growler
