A-Poured a nice gold-bronze honey w/thick head that quickly dropped and left ok lacing.
S-Hop character w/hint citrus and floral notes, touch of fresh dirt and vegetation, and malt with overtones of a grain I can't identify.
T-Slightly sweet malt at attack, and palate opens up citrus flavors and I get the first trace of juniper berries which I probably wouldn't have identified if it wasn't written on the bottle, clean, dry finish with lingering bitterness. I think I'm also getting a bit of salt.
M-I really enjoyed the way this stuff went down...smooth and clean. It's an easy drink. Body is just right, carbonation is just right.
D-Not my favorite stuff, but this beer is still delightful. A double deuce goes down smoother than most twelvers, and it's enjoyable.

I liked it! Almost no head on the golden-amber colored ale. Nose had bread-like maltiness with a background of spiciness and piney juniper berries. Taste was the best part, a wonderful balance of malt, hop and spice. A honey, bread malt invites you in, followed by the spice, very piney-notes that come from the conifer juniper berries. The berries are completed with some gentle, but noticeable hops, floral and citrusy in nature like a weak IPA which really wrap it up to a crisp and slightly bitter end to balance out the malt and sweetness present throughout.
I disagree with all the average reviews, this juniper ale was a well-balanced, juniper pine spices were quite noticeable, which went great with the honey malt flavors and the hops at the finish. Worth getting again.
