Spruce Tree Ale – Tofino Brewing Company

From Vancouver Island’s Tofino Brewing out of Tofino comes their “Spruce Tree Ale”.  This beer is conditioned with sitka spruce tips.  The beer pours a golden colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of malt, floral hops and some sweet citrus.  The flavour is of sweet citrus, caramel malts, hops bitterness and a light spruce finish.  The flavour is fairly light.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.5%.  The spruce was not as present as I had expected but the finished product is very pleasing and a pleasant sip.
