Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 03.23.14.

A: See through dark copper. Off white head. Nice lacing.

S: Caramel, dark fruit/berry. Sweet smelling.

T: Berry dominates. Woodiness, caramel, some bitterness are there too.

M: Creamy smooth.

O: This was a very interesting beer. I wasn't sure if the juniper berries would go well in an amber ale, but they do. The berries came on first, then the caramel, followed by a slight woodiness, and then a touch of bitterness. There was a great balance between the berries and the woodiness too. I enjoyed this one.

Not a big fan of this, the juniper doesn't really show up too much, and its fairly bitter without the body to back it up.

Sweet ODIN'S RAVEN!!! Now that I got my movie drop out of the way, it's beer review time!!! Say WHAT about the Juniper Berries??? Love that luscious dark pour that leaves only a slight bit of head to get through. That is about where it peaks as I'm not wild about the aroma and while I appreciate a deep Amber ale when its done right with its woody/smoky notes, the overall feel of it Pale ale's in comparison to its colour. I still wouldn't kick it out of bed after a hard day's work though. . .

A: Dark ruby in color, a half finger of blonde head that hangs around just long enough for you to miss it when its gone. Lacing seems to be a short lived event.

S: A full nose, enticing, complex. Can smell the juniper (at least what I think would be juniper) and the biscuity smell of BPA; hoppy, earthy, buttery and malty aromas

T: Seems somewhat like a British Pale malt flavor up front (Stronger). I have had very little experience with juniper berries but I can tell that they have a distinct, if not faint, flavor present after the initial taste. The finish is tasty, but nothing that really sets it apart in the category.

M: Good carbonation, a little thin, but very standard for the class which I am very fond of.

O: A good choice for fans of Amber Ales, definitely tastes like it would go well with some good, man style foods. Not willing to call it a great but could definitely see myself having another with a burger and sweet potato fries.
