1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not a fan of this beer. Only beer I’ve not been able to finish. Tasted like cigar ash. Not the right beer for me.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden orange with a nice white head. The nose comes off real smooth and soft, a mix of maple syrup, malt, and honey. I really like the smell of this... One of the best I have ever put my nose to. The taste is very smooth with hints of honey and spices. This ale is very interesting. I don’t know what heather smells or tastes like, but if it is represented correctly here I would like to seek out this intriguing flower.

I’ve only had one Heather Ale before this one. Just an average beer, slight hops, grassy aroma and easy to drink. I didn’t feel the "full malt character" but Fraoch did have a dry finish.

A heather ale that poured a a bit cloudy golden amber producing a standard head of white. Aroma was almost too much to take but on the palate the beer proved to be very dry.
An interesting heather ale.

Gold Coloring. White Head. Assuming what I tasted was Heather...tasted floral/herbs. In Scotland the Kelpie was my favorite...imported, this is my preferred along with the Alba

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A bland somewhat ugly color with a slightly skunky aroma. Bad the taste really wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be. Not sure but I think it may have just been a bad bottle.

dimpled mug: all 4 main rating divisions of this beer didn’t impress me. the flavor seemed slightly unique, but all in all it failed to provide me with something that would bring me to buy another bottle of it. it pours fizzy, slightly hazy and golden, and with a quick and slightly airy white head. it’s very herbal. it tastes like a slightly fruity and floral earth. in my opinion, that’s all there is to it. i think it's good, but it isn't great... i prefer hops. i prefer other beers... so with that is a lower rating, oh hum!
