3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
slightly hazy copper body, white head. Lots of resiny hop Aroma, caramel and some sweatty fruit scent. Taste is basic caramel and piney resiny hop. Some alcohol. I can’t taste Juniper unless its the sweat one. Btw, the glass this was served really was unattractive.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at the brewpub) The beer poured amber and a little bit hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had hops, juniper berries, pine and tangerine. Palate was medium bodied and a bit stinging with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, juniper berries, pine, lightly fruitiness, tangerin and quite intense bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. A little bit too harsh beer for my taste.
