COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pre- modern non hopped style ale, brewered before hops were discovered to have anti-microbiol properties. This ale is medium to light bodied, amberto light brown in color, almost no bitterness. Made using heather, a flower from a bush grown in Scotland. The heather gives this ale a nice subtle herbal character and aroma

MBGSF 2011. Poured a hazy dark brown color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Good aroma of toasted malt and wood. Medium to full body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy herbal bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy complex bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Interesting complex brew.

GTMW 08 - Pours cloudy brown with a small tan head. The aroma is quite heathery with very well toasted malt, light butter and toffee. Medium slick body with some roughness on the finish and light carbonation. The flavor starts with dry caramel, some floralness and some earthy traits. The finish gives everything a rough feel.

Dogbrick (7687) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a hazy amber-brown color with a medium off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Floral aroma with some malt notes. Light body with flavors of toasted malt, herbs, and fruit. The finish is fruity with a short sweet aftertaste. Interesting beer overall.

JulienHuxley (2954) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2011
Aroma: Loaded with cherries along with some pine. Very interesting. Appearance: Copper pour with offwhite head. Flavors: Very light, somewhat bland, slightly fruity and woody. Palate: Mild carbonation and light bodied. Seems appropriate for the style but maybe a little too watery. Overall: Interesting beer to try but not that good. I prefered TDD Anned’ale
