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.

Pours a finger and half of head on a deep red-brown colored body.
The aroma is grassy, juniper berries and dry hay.
The taste is balanced with some mild lemon and juniper bitterness coming through.
The texture is dry, crisp with moderate carbonation.
A good ale and the juniper adds a nice dry bitterness effect.

Poured in pint glass after long walk with 5 month puppy. Dark copper appearance but good clarity. Minimal head, light lacing. Earthy smell, no overpowering malt or hops. Light refreshing taste, bitterness that hangs out, not quite sour berry taste. Mouthfeel thin, but in a good way. Very good beer, one of my new favorite amber ales.

22oz bomber split into pint glasses.
A: Dark, clear and beautiful mahogany with lots of foamy head and some lacing on the glass.
S: Plain amber nose; bready malt base, earthy notes but overall a low hop presence, hints of pine and nuts and Juniper. Big bready/slightly toasted malty nose.
T: A bit more dynamic, hints of nuttiness and dark toasted caramel, even some suggestions of chocolate as it warms. More faint notes of earthy hops and Juniper barriers.
MF: Medium body, clean and malty, low bitterness.
O: Pretty plain amber ale, really. This is my first offering from Odin and honestly I'm not in a hurry to try anything else.
