3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a finger and half of head on a deep red-brown colored body.
The aroma is grassy, juniper berries and dry hay.
The taste is balanced with some mild lemon and juniper bitterness coming through.
The texture is dry, crisp with moderate carbonation.
A good ale and the juniper adds a nice dry bitterness effect.
On tap at Odin brewing. Pours out a crisp amber topped with a sand head. Nose is light grain some bread and a caramel sweetness. Taste is more of the light grain and a touch of caramel. djd07 (14570) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2016

Aroma is rich sweet malts, caramel, fig, and slight hickory. Taste is a fairly thick chewy chocolate, caramel and molasses. Appearance a clear dark amber with a medium fluffy head that retains very well. NeilinSeattle (32) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2016
The aroma teases but the body doesn’t quite deliver. Still a good example of an amber ale, currently one of the best in Seattle.

Sweet and malty. Very light on the juniper. The finish is a little metallic but still smooth. Pretty good overall. stevoj (5055) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Growler from Albertsons. Seeing a wide variety of scores here, and I’ll go with the downside, average at best, with a flat metallic finish. Might be closer to a brown ale than an amber, but that wouldn’t improve any scores.... MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
Yech. This had a bitter and absolutely unappealing taste. Heavy malts and syrup with some burnt notes and berries. newtabularasa (2) - - OCT 6, 2015 does not count
Complex, delicious, no off flavors at all. Good mouthfeel, I kept taking extra ’tastes’ because it was soo good. One of my favorites! brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 27, 2015
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.
