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. . .

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

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.
