|Don't dew it, 8/16|
The evening's offering was Rogue Brewing's Juniper Pale Ale. A tribute to my recently fallen (though not a Juniper) tree in the front yard. Made with real Juniper berries, though I wasn't tasting any huge difference... maybe a slight spice. At 34 IBUs, not a real hop bite but a piney enough nose (may be the berries). Poured a hazy light amber with slightly more than a finger head and decent lacing. A 5.3% ABV makes this a very refreshing, drinkable Pale. If it came in a six I'd get a six. As it was, 22oz. made do. I rated it a B.
