Arctic Circle Ale is somewhat akin to an alpine liqueur with a dose of hops. The juniper expression is not crisp as in gin but more balanced with the malt such that the bitterness and vegetal character is more evident than any piney character. Carbonation is restrained.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear deep red, with no head except for a thin offwhite film. The aroma is dominated by malt, with dried fruits, dark bread, caramel and burnt sugar. There are also a lot of spicy aromas going on, a "dry" and dusty aroma of juniper berries, as well as rye and the yeast that imparts a very pleasant spicy feel, and there are also some notes of charred oak. The taste is very sweet, with a slightly tart finish. The mouthfeel is slightly thick and with soft carbonation. Overall, this beer is terrific and well worth the money. It’s also somewhat similar to Nøgne Ø’s Imperial Brown Ale.
