Inspired by the northern brewing tradition of flavoring beer with juniper boughs, we created Odinís Gift, a deep ruby colored ale brewed with a touch of juniper berries. Rich caramel and roasted malt flavors compliment earthy hop aroma to produce a beer that easily pairs with a variety of foods.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Serving: from tap (tap handle read Odinís Gift Nordic amber ale)--at Napoli Pizzeria Ristorante. Aroma: moderate caramel malt. Appearance: very small, frothy, off-white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-red/light-brown body. Taste: lightly bitter, malty initial taste and lightly bitter finish with hints of roasted malt and smoke. Average duration. Palate: medium-to full bodied with oily texture and soft-to-lively carbonation. Overall: good, easy to drink, nothing not to like, but not really outstanding.

Sweet and malty. Very light on the juniper. The finish is a little metallic but still smooth. Pretty good overall.

Growler from Albertsons. Seeing a wide variety of scores here, and Iíll go with the downside, average at best, with a flat metallic finish. Might be closer to a brown ale than an amber, but that wouldnít improve any scores....

Yech. This had a bitter and absolutely unappealing taste. Heavy malts and syrup with some burnt notes and berries.

Complex, delicious, no off flavors at all. Good mouthfeel, I kept taking extra ítastesí because it was soo good. One of my favorites!

On tap @ Odin Tap Room. Dark amber colored beer with off-white foam. Lots of caramel malt and herbal qualities. A touch of roast, dark cocoa, and toasted bread. Some leafy floral and earthy hop character as well. Light bitterness to the flavor. Sort of a cereal sweetness as it sits for a bit.

Amber in color. Malty in taste with very subtle juniper berry flavor. Great smell to the beer.

12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack. The aroma on this is very nice. Sweet, caramel, roasted maltiness with a little fruity acidity. A little nutty, too. Transparent dark amber body with a tan-yellow head present. Starts with a rather toasted and roasted malt character. Light underlying cereal, too. I get a little spice character from the juniper berries, but really not much. Finishes with a more toasted cereal (cheerios) maltiness. This is pretty tasty.

650ml brown bottle. Label just says "Odinís Gift". Amber and clear. Big whitish head with sticky edges and soft lacing. Nose has caramel malts, nut, wood, juniper. Taste has caramel and some woodiness. A bit nutty and earthy, woody finish. Soft body. Better than expected.

DuffMan (8917) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. Reddish amber brown, off white head. Simple profile of caramel with earthy and tea-like undertones. No discernible juniper in here at all. Disappointing considering how the label pumped this up to be "great beer designed with great food in mind"-- Iím not interested in learning what they consider to be great food.

12oz bottle poured into my wedding 6oz tasting glass. My wife bought this a little while ago in a mix-6 from TJs. I had little desire for the beer. I did not think this brewery would make anything interesting in this style, additionally juniper scares me. It pours with a small but tight head that maintains. Upon the first sniff I was surprised by the beer. First, no strong juniper. Then no strong hops flavor. Finally, a strong malt character. Is it possible, an amber ale that isnít hop-centric or flabby on the malt? Well, it is. Earthy and a bit cocoa. The flavor has an addition of lightly bitter hops and just a light herbal character (juniper?). It offsets the strong malt character. Thick body (for the style)with a bit of tingling carbonation.
