Birra all’erica. Niente luppolo. Aroma maltato, un pò erbaceo e floreale. Nel bicchiere si presenta in una maniera meravigliosa: ambrata, trasparente con un bel cappello di schiuma poco persistente. Al palato di nuovo malto, un qualcosa di erbaceo e un pò di menta. Corpo fine. Scende meravigliosamente bene.

Well I didn’t know quite what to expect with this brew, but I was pleasantly surprised by this allegedly ancient Scottish offering. Pours a hazy light pale orange, looks like a crossover between a pale ale and a wheat beer. Aroma is of wheat, berries and herbal spices, intriguing. Taste is light, but allows for a variety of flavors to come through including the classic Scottish peaty accent as well as what apparently is the floral heather flavoring. Wheaty malt base, some orange citrus which may come from the yeast? Finishes clean and smooth. Very interesting, strikes me as akin to a wheat beer but definitely distinct. Earthy and exotic overall, recommended to at least give it a try!

Aroma is a little bit floral, as its taste. Medium carbonation. Refreshing.

Interest, non-usual aroma with herbal hints. Body is not strong. On the mouth - mint and cranberry, strong caramel and chocolate notes, some nuts and cream on aftertaste.

Czyściutki jak lager w aromacie z gdzieniegdzie pojawiającą się ziołowością i kwiatami. W smaku posmak gruitowy, ale niezbyt intensywny, czuć wrzos i iglaki, wszystko razem tworzy słabe wrażenie. Nuda.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Classic spice ale based on a 16th-century Scottish recipe, when heather was among the herbs used in beer before hops were generalized. In this case, fresh heather flowers are added to the mash. Original and interesting beer with thin, not stable, snow white head and orange blonde colour close to amber, lightly hazy after adding the deposit. Subtle aroma of caramel, orange peel, apple and clear spices, gale and heather, subjective impressions of vanilla, pine needles and mint. Spicy sweetish taste, impression of artisanal acacia honey, here and there some pungent spices, sweetish fruits, but rather thin finish; mouthfeel thin, soft and oily.

Ottima amber ale di stampo americana anche scozzese. Molto floreale e fruttato sia al naso che al gusto buona beverinità.

Faint aroma but some heather and caramel can be noticed. Golden clear with white head. Sweet milky and smooth with heather gicing noticable contribution to the taste.

A clear light orange body with a scimpy white head. Nose has herbal minty notes with some underlying malt characters. Taste is sweet with a minty herbal aftertaste. Carbonation and palate are medium. Overall quite nice and drinkable.

Pours a clear golden color and littered with the largest amount of vegetable manner I’ve ever seen floating in a beer. Oaky vanilla on the nose with some grassy and citrusy hop noted earlier after the pour. Creamy mouthfeel with some carbonation on the rear of the palate. Sweet corn flavor, with a touch more of a sign of that oaky vanilla noted in the nose.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium golden color with a finger of foam. Nose is light floral malt and some honey. Palate follows with a soft palate not a whole lot going on. Drinkable but uninteresting with a simple beer flavor. Grain, light faint bitterness and lingering floral grass.
