Rogue "Juniper Pale Ale"
Pale Ale (ABV 5.2%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a dark murky yellow with an orange hue and had an average size (1-2 finger) frothy white head that lasted a little while leaving behind a decent amount of residue that lasted throughout and had fair lacing.

The aroma was up front with a nice spruce hop with a mild indication of some gain malts and a horse blanket yeast and had notes of citrus, spices and juniper berries.

The taste was mild and slightly yeasty with a hint of citrus at first and finished moderately hoppy with a strong berry note at the end that had the flavor lingering around for a decent amount of time after the swallow.

Mouthfeel was light in body and slightly watery yet dry in texture with a moderate carbonation.

Overall a very nice Pale Ale, light and refreshing with a nice soft hop flavor that worked well with the berries.

    Mark Seen this many times but I am just not a juniper fan so I have not tried it.
