Bottle. Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours a reddish amber, maybe slightly cloudy. Small orangey head. Aroma is a heavy caramel malt with juniper tossed in there. Taste is the same. Overkill on the malt. A little burnt flavor in the end.

Bottle. Yes this beer is made with juniper and you can tell in both aroma and flavor and you know what, I like it, it’s pretty good.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a amber with off white head. Taste a little fruity. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again.

Sampled in a bomber from a sampler pack. A really nice brew. Juniper and earthy flavors are really quality. Great brew.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber into snifter glass. Deep clear ruby brown with tan head, very bubbly. Aroma of caramel malt sweetness and slight herbal/citrus note. Taste seems to go another direction from aroma, malt sweetness is subdued with notes of pine, toast, assorted herbs, fruitiness, wood, citrus, some honey and slight earthy hoppiness. Medium body, heavy carbonation, herbal, complex with lasting finish. Pretty good, not the juniper berry bomb I expected from reading the bottle.
