2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33 l bottle. Amber color with small head. Caramel, toffee, nuts, rye and disdinctive fruity juniper in the aroma. Tart fruity, woody and piney juniper flavor with caramel and toffee. Very low carbonation give this a bit thin mouthfeel. Decent aroma but strong evergreen wood flavor is too much for me.

courtesy of oh6gdx - amber-orange colour with a bad head retention; aroma of dried dates with a touch of vinegar (didn’t catch the juniper here); sweet and with a low carbonation; quite thin-bodied; low bitterness and more notes of dates in the finish - confusing

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle (cute label!) shared with ozujsko, received in a trade with oh6gdx.
Poured a lovely dark copper colour with a tiny white head that went away slow. It got suddenly fizzy after I drank half of it. Odd. The nose was extremely faint. Some malt, and very faint hints of coconut and some random berry. The taste is as faint as the nose. Damn watery. Some malt, weak weak hints of some apple bubblegum that’s lost most of its taste (wiht just a touch of mint), a tad salty. Erm. A huge disappointment after I read it had juniper and rye malt.... haven’t seen a beer more deserving of a 1 in palate in a while.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Lovely coppery color. My nose cant pick up anything special or even strong. No unique flavors, easy drinking lager. Quite sweet. A bit vatery and flat. Good drinking stuff nothing special and the label is pretty!
