A-clear dark yellow with a stable nice white head. some lacing

S-honestly smells a bit like an adjunct lager...light honey and corn. a slight herbal aspect to it.

T-comes in with a really creamy herbs taste...which i'm thinking might be the juniper. its a really good and smooth taste with just a touch of bitterness. the after-taste is matching with a hint of cereal as well.

M-creamy medium carbonation with a slightly dry finish

O-one of the most drinkable beers i've had lately. the tastes are smooth and clean. this is the second one i've had and both disappeared way too quickly. it won't leave a lasting impression but you'll enjoy it while you're drinking it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Singer finger white head on a hazy golden with slight crimson hues. Aroma is nice but faint sweet juniper aroma with a slight almost noble hop like aroma. Flavor is mildly hoppy with a subtle nobel hop, musty almost wet sock hop flavor. Light malt. Moderate to high carbonation and light to medium body. A nice beer if u like noble hop tasting beers.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a crystal clear light orange with a 1 inch foamy white head that settles to a thin film on the top of the beer. Thin foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt/grains and some slight herbal (juniper?) aromas. Taste is of malt/grains up front with a finish that has hints of herbal flavors. A mild bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the juniper that is supposedly in this one does not stand out very much.
