Pine flavor is a bit overwhelming. Not terrible but not great either.

Terrible beer. It taste like how my carpet smells, which is bad. I wouldn't even recommend this beer to my ex.

Just a hint of spruce. Very woodsy. Loved it.

Interesting ale. Nice taste throughout and you can taste the spruce which adds a nice and unique flavor. Doesn't have the best aftertaste.

Not the best magic hat beer I've had, but can drink one of these. Sort of weak, but the spruce gives it a unique flavor.

Usually enjoy their beers but this is pretty weak.

BOOOO on Magic Hat!!!! Way too light for a Vermont winter brew. Tastes like Circus Boy (which I like), with some spruce bows added in???!!
