3.38/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a nice dark aber with a bit of haze and a nice fluufy off white head.

The smell was light with a bit of grain and pine.

The flavor has a light and toasty malt body and a bit of juniper zip leaving some pleasant bitterness with a touch sourness.

The mouth is light with good carbonation and a bit sticky.

Decent, but not what I would call aniversary special.

Presentation: On-tap; 16oz pint glass

Appearance: Dark orange/amber beer with a tight cream cap which soon fades to a thick ring.

Smell: Lightly woodsy hops, mildly fruity esters, almost reminiscent of Ringwood

Taste: Mild woodsy hops, light fruit esters, a fairly clean finish with a nice medium hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and smooth

Drinkability: Pretty high for the abv

Conclusion: Not typically a fan of the style, but this was pretty tasty and it grew on me as I sipped through my pint. It's a nice, simple, well-balanced beer, and while it's nothing extra special, it's definitely worth a try.
