A - Light bodied with an eggshell head. Very straw bodied.

T - A little sweet but then the smokeyness hits ya.

M - Light bodied and highly carbed.

O - Very interesting... I like it, but it's not something I'd reach for.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that has very good retention properties and consistently left a thin head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of smoked malts are present in the nose along with some hints of juniper berries.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has initial flavors of juniper followed by smoked malts towards the finish. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and slightly chalky on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a nice balance between the flavors of juniper and smoked malts.
