I’ll be honest and say I was expecting a ruby red ale with a ferocious assault of juniper that would have had me reeling imagining I have been attacked by a dutchman (lowercase D for deliberate) armed with Jenever. It appeared much lighter than that with a coarse white head. The juniper in the aroma is subtle, smelling more like a cheeky pale ale with grapefruit and apricot aromas. In the flavour again I was wondering where the juniper was and then I sat and thought about some of the better gins I had tasted. In those the juniper was a balancing item for the other botanicals such as lemon peel, coriander, cubeb berries, chamomile, rose petals, licorice and so forth. Here it is again a subtle balancer for more tart citrus and chlorophyll characters lent by the hops. But you add them to a whole and you get a fresh pale ale with a real astringent bitterness that carries the finish long after it would have been due to expire. I think of this beer as an interesting exemplar of a spicy ale that could have used a little more juniper if I’m honest.

Bottle. Lots of sweet, floral notes, somewhat piney, juniper-like. Moderate body, carbo a bit over moderate. A bit dry in the finish. Tasty.

Bevi una pale Ale americana spezziata con bacche di ginepro e ti aspetti un cazzotto al naso ed al palato. Invece la parola d’ordine è : equilibrio! Al naso emergonoo sentori di caramello e resine balsamiche, con un bouquet floreale ed erbaceo. Anche al palato è equilibrata e le note di ginepro, sono elegantemente percepibili.

Sou fã dessa cervejaria. Uma cerveja equilibrada, saborosa, com um amargor na medida e muito refrescante.

BOTTLE. hazy straw to gold pour, god carb with solid foam white head.. Musk sticks & floral hops on the nose.. Caramel/biscuit malt upfront going to a floral hoppy middle, finishing with more malt and what I guess is the juniper berries?.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel
