look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear yellow-gold with a pillowy off-white head.

S: Surprisingly lacking in nose for a juniper beer. Hard to get much at all, not more than a bit of grain and a tinge of malt.

T: Very light biscuity malt and grainy backbone blending with hop counterbalance. Absolutely no hop bit, though. Really hard to taste any juniper berries and only a vague essence of herbality in the hop flavor that is present. Very smooth, though, I suppose.

M: Quaffable.

O: Drinkable and refreshing, but really not super exciting on the flavor front, especially for something as promising-sounding as a juniper pale. By no means bad, but far off the mark of either my favorite pale ale or herbed/spiced beer.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a medium slowly dissipating white head. Aroma and Taste is biscuit malt, sweet light berries notes, and some yeast, Some light bitterness in the taste. Palate is a medium body, slightly crisp with moderate carbonation. Finish is a combination of sweet light fruity notes, some yeast, biscuit malt and some hops bitterness for balance, a bit of nutty notes. Overall an average brew, nothing special about this brew.

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of caramel and pale malts in the nose along with some hints of juniper.
T: Flavors of pale malts are present in the taste, along with notes of juniper berries—these particularly stand out and linger in the finish. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a solid and drinkable pale ale; the addition of juniper berries definitely makes the taste more interesting.
