Amber lager, thick and generous head; brewed with juniper. Nice hop aroma. Good body, perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness, good malt, quite evident caramel, the juniper can be perceived in the background; then the bitterness of the hop (>34IBU) and the roasted malt get ahead, to a strong and persistent finish.
