hmmmm... I'm really for a lack of words on this one. It does have a nice flowery flavor, but the rest of the flavroing makes it nasty.... Sorry, don't like it one bit.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Floral and soil like aroma, copper hue with a small white head, malty and earthy with herb/spice undertones, wine like texture, interesting but not my cup of tea.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized off white bubbles. It has a cloudy amber brown body with some carbonation clinging to the side of the glass. It had a smooth malty initial taste with some, but not much tang to the finish. It was very smooth with a good full bodied flavor.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew poured a medium head and it left a good lacing on the side of my mug. To me it had a fruity, citrusy aroma to it. It had a cloudy appearance. It had a bitter taste to it and it left an aftertaste. I was not overly impressed with this brew.

Amber orage with a thin head. I was pleasantly suprised by the heather aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet, but not in the typically Scottish/malty sense. I though it would be very subtle. An unusual and satisfying brew.

A great surprise: heather frangrance is like Saaz hops, rich and floral. It took a few sips to not miss the bitterness (which is slightly vegetal). Imagine a massively dry-hopped, low-bitterness scottish ale. Nice.

Tastes like weeds (heather). Not too great - definitely not a sipping beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured cloudy orange/yellow with barely a whitehead. Smells like cat urine and malt. Very different flavor, floral taste.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The color of onion skin and a lacing head that has now dissapated. Aroma is similar to cat piss. I don't know what that is, but it is also flowery and a touch malty. A flavor of flowers and a hint of chocolate, some spices and a decent bitterness. A dry finish. Overall not too pleasant...but, worth trying for something completely different.
