Pours slightly cloudy gold, with a moderate head that disapates quickly. Malty carmel smell. Hoppy but not overly so. Relatively thin body, very drinkable.

12oz bottle. Poured a clear, golden amber color with a good-sized head of off-white foam. It smelled of pine, pine, pine and caramel. Too much pine and not good pine. Like eating a handful of pine needles.

Wish I had tried this before I bought a six pack. I guess it will be in the back of the refrigerator waiting for the in-laws to visit.
