Iíve only had one Heather Ale before this one. Just an average beer, slight hops, grassy aroma and easy to drink. I didnít 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.

A bland somewhat ugly color with a slightly skunky aroma. Bad the taste really wasnít 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 didnít 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. itís very herbal. it tastes like a slightly fruity and floral earth. in my opinion, thatís 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!

Pours golden with a nice white head. Aroma is very herbal. Flavor is fruity and earthy. Just a little thick in the swallow. Its something different but nothing to go out of your way to find.

500ml brown bottle.Poured a crystal clear amber with very light carbonation. Good ice-cream head & some lacing.Fruit pie floral aroma. Sweet malt apple flavour.Medium mouthfeel with bitter citrus finish. I donít know whay peat tastes like. I used to burn it.I.ve just poured another one colder than the last. Its certainly different and not unpleasant but Iím beginning to miss the hops.
