Pours a three finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Mystery bits in bottom of glass that may or may not be yeast. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Faint malty nose. Flavor reminds me of honey cough syrup. Far better than their Lager. $1.85 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 11, 2010
THOUGHTS: Not bad, but not great either. Surprisingly cloying. The hops in this one were pretty much just there to keep this from being nauseatingly sweet. It was a bit one sided, but it went down fairly easily. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, very dark, copper to dark, orangey bronze with nice carbonation and a large to huge, rocky, off-white head that mostly, but slowly diminished leaving excellent lacing. The aroma had a bit of dark bread; hints of chocolate and coffee; and metallic hops. The initial flavor was sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was rather to heavily sweet, lightly bitter and slightly sour with an average duration. There was caramel malt, a little roasted malt, hints of chocolate and coffee, slight metallic hops and some dark bread. The light to medium body was syrupy with rather fizzy carbonation and a fairly crisp and slightly astringent finish that get a little bit metallic as it warmed.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Toast and a touch of roasted malt on the nose. Gentle malt and a touch of roast. Slightly nutty, toast, more malt. Finishes with a slight sweetness and roasty malt. Decent and easy drinking. Pleasantly surprised.

jgb9348 (5558) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2012
Deep dark cola coloured body with a frothy, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, toffee, metal and a touch of coffee. Medium-bodied; Toasted malt flavour with a good nutty and earthy bite, some metal and alcohol soon afterwards and a sweet finish. Aftertaste is nice and robust - earthy and nutty, but still very sweet and potent. Overall, a very nice beer to break the monotony of the typical lagers you see here. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Pencil Supermarket in Phnom Penh, Cambodia earlier in the day for 3500Riel (US$0.90) sampled on 03-April-2012.
