Really enjoyed this one - Good appearance, very clear, light brown with thin white foam. Not much to the smell, it's clean and malty. Nice taste, sweet caramel malts, with a nice bitter finish that gives a clean mouthfeel. Extremely drinkable - thin, there's no real backbone to it, but nice.

3.97/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a dark copper with a healthy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Clumpy, yeast like bits of foam linger for some time.

Smell: There are touches of metallic roasted malts but the overwhelming smell is of juniper and alcohol esters.

Taste: Juniper, caramel, sweet roasted malts, spicy with a kicking hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, smooth, coating, starts sweet and turns to bitter as you finish.

Drinkability: Very good, easy to drink and tastey
