Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Tap @ Pies & Pints. Clear amber pour, off white head leaving a dense lace. Fairly neutral nose - a hint of malt. Medium body reveals a fresh maltiness that doesn’t overwhelm. Some toast and a faint caramel sweetness is nicely balanced by the bitter juniper berries and pine hops, all leading to an astringent finish. One of the more sessionable ambers I’ve ever had and suitable as a year-round thirst quencher.

mcberko (7443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2015
On tap at Portland Craft, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Nose brings out bready malt and light earthiness. Flavour is dry and stale, with earthiness and bready malts. Not good at all. Very weak with off-flavours.

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 03.23.14. A: See through dark copper. Off white head. Nice lacing. S: Caramel, dark fruit/berry. Sweet smelling. T: Berry dominates. Woodiness, caramel, some bitterness are there too. M: Creamy smooth. O: This was a very interesting beer. I wasn’t sure if the juniper berries would go well in an amber ale, but they do. The berries came on first, then the caramel, followed by a slight woodiness, and then a touch of bitterness. There was a great balance between the berries and the woodiness too. I enjoyed this one.

This is a great dark amber. Pours perfectly and smells great. Chocolaty malt, and much lighter than I expected. The juniper berries add a nice twist to the finish.

It poured a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of malts and some toast. The taste was of toast, minor hops and a little bitter. Thanks Hayduke!

vyvvy (4178) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours amber with an off-white head. The aroma has biscuits, earthy British yeast, some juniper, nuttiness and smooth toast. It has a medium / light body with frothy sharp carbonation. The taste begins with a bit of astringency, toast, red fruits, woodiness (juniper?) and some toast. The finish is earthy, woody and some some fruitiness.

furthur (276) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle pour, black walnut colored body, creamy head, fades. Aroma is malt. Taste is malt, wet dog, slight juniper, some hops. Body is ok, moderate carbonation. Nothing special.

Highly rated because better than the typical variety in this style. Very flavorful. Deviates from the style in the juniper berries, which work, and contribute a nice flavor to the beer. Good stuff.

Dark color like concentrated ice tea. Smells like wet coffee grounds. Nice amber flavor but roasted chocolate malt and strong nuttiness.
