A bit of a gimmicky name, so I didn't expect much from this beer. Pours a dark yellow with a light thin head that disappears quickly. Limited lacing on the glass is from the initial head.

Smell is pretty light. A very little bit of hops and spice is all I detected.

Taste is a great moderately spicy combination of hops and juniper berries (although I never would have guessed this) with a good malt center. The spicy juniper lasts well after the beer is gone, but while it is still in the glass it contributes to an enjoyable taste that complement the hops bite. I really enjoyed this one.

Mouthfeel is quenching and drying with nice dry aftertaste.

I could drink this one all the time and never tire of it. It disappeared quicker than I would have liked.

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.
