12oz bottle.

Appearance: Nice golden color, slightly hazy

Smell: Relatively strong - herbal, sweet.

Taste: Pleasantly bitter, with a strong flavor of (what I think) is the juniper. Remains complex throughout.

Overall: An interesting beer - I was not impressed at first but the tasted definitely grew on me.

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.
