harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Pours amber with some soapy white foam, near excellent clarity. Smells of pale malts with a hint of crystal. There’s a nice floral character I can only describe as slightly candy like. Almost a limy woodruff. It keeps me coming, so that’s cool. Flavor is slightly sweet and bready with a slight, again, tip of the tongue sorta thing here. It’s got plenty of flavors, but I can’t quite put my finger on the culprits. Medium on thick for the style with moderate carb and a semi slick finish. I had a taster of this previously, and wasn’t impressed, I’m glad I came back to revisit. Nice beer. This apocalypse series is 50/50 for me at this point having had the first four. Serving type: bottle 04-18-2012

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty amber, a little dark and dull, thin to moderate sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft floral nose, a little herbal and soapy in a way.   A little prickly on the tongue, soft heather, little hop aspect.   Remains a bit herbal, slight earth tinge.   Seems like an American Pale that is light in hops, but has a floral and herbal nose that comes through very soft on the tongue.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   As it warms it gets a bit more towards an American Pale in the hop bitterness comes out a bit more.   When I think Traditional I think of Hair of the Dog Adam.   This is not that big, but interesting in its own right.   Finishes with a touch of floral and herbal aspects, perhaps a touch of lavendar.   I suppose there is also heather, but seems on the lighter side.   At least a little different from the norm.   Can’t shake that fancy soap stuff tho, especially on the tongue.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 19, 2013
22oz bottle. Pours a clear, deep orangish amber with a white one finger head that has good retention. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, light citrus, light grapefruit and pineapple. Flavor is citrus hops, sweet malt, light fruit and a spicy herbal flavor from the heather. Finishes sweet, citrusy and some hoppy prickly bitterness. Medium bodied with some creaminess.

cheap (4058) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2013
heather ale on tapat the bocktown monaca, nice place! Looks like pale lager with a pond scum head. Initially has a quite strong warming effect going down the throat. Almost flat. A little astringent in the persentation. Finish is medium medicinal alky linger. Can not really detect any spices in there which means it well designed.

mansquito (3399) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Blind Tiger, NYC tap ($7.50): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is earth, tea, malts, and sugar. Taste is somewhat sweet. Tastes similar to the Scottish heather ales. The heather gives it a nice earthy kick that balances well with the malty sweetness. ’Twas nice.
