So I expected this beer to be much hoppier than it is, being named "Wild Hop" but I guess it’s just because the hops are organic. It does have good flavor though. Has a dark golden-orange color, not quite amber. No head to speak of. Light aroma. High carbonation. I didn’t know this was an AB beer until I saw it here on Ratebeer, and it does almost seem like a Bud Light with much more flavor too it. Easily drinkable.

Bottle. Pours amber with big fluffy head. Sweet, malty aroma. And then thats all to really classify it as a beer. Theres no taste. Slight malty finish to it. Theres just nothing there.

12oz bottle. Big fluffy head. Crisp dark amber. Light aroma. I was nervous about having this after a DIPA but one sip has cleansed my palate. i may have to pick up a case for that purpose in the future. Minimal flavour until the finish. Hint of pepper and taste of apples.

12 oz. bottle. I didn’t realize until I went to record my rating that this is an AB product, and I am glad for that. Pours a clear gold with a moderate white head that lasted until about mid-glass and left some spotty lacing. Some light floral hops aroma in the nose. The flavor is light malt with light hops bitterness at the finish. I honestly enjoyed this beer and I think this beer’s ratings suffer from its association with AB.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 20, 2008
THOUGHTS: It’s OK. Being organic doesn’t hurt it any, but it doesn’t make it any better. Not bad, but definitely not good. Very one-sided. TECHNICAL: Poured a clear, medium to dark yellow with and average, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma was moderate caramel malt and very light hops. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and acidic, while the finish was moderately sweet, lightly bitter and sour with a short to average duration. The flavor was caramel malt and light metallic hops.

Bottle. Not a very good beer. I suppose with a name like "Wild Hops" you would expect a strong hoppy taste but not so!. Would not recommend.

FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2008
The deep coppery color of this beer promised much more than it could deliver. The high carbonation level, slightly sour taste on the tongue and burnt oats aftertaste made this brew mediocre, at best. Try again.

12 oz. bottle, nice try at an end run by AB, but still not much better than the rest of their stuff, tinny flavor with watery finish
