WA Cask Beer Fest ’06. Pours amber. Aroma is earthy malt and some spice. Taste is slightly watery with good balance of malt and spice.

On tap at brewpub. One of the most unique beers I’ve ever tasted. First thing I said after tasting: "I think there is curry in this; no, actually it’s chili powder." This is a heather beer, brewed with heather and no hops. No chili powder or curry added....but the heather gives it an amazing "earthy" taste...not dirt, but a deep mushroom like earthy taste. Very unique and worth trying. Not worth drinking a lot of. BillKismet (4041) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Bronze-brass color w. no head. Woody and earthy aroma. Very unique earthy flavor with a piquant prickliness. Crit (3973) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2006
Hazy amber, little or no head.Only one thing to say about this, wood shaving in both nose and taste, nothing else. Smell reminds me of a pencil sharpener.
This is crap!! The worst beer at the fathers day festival Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
This has to be the strangest heather ale I’ve ever tasted...hazy caramel colour. Toasty, spicy aroma is fairly assertive, at least until you take a sip and get the explosive flavour. Massive spices...not at all the sweet, flowery heather you’d expect but wood, cumin and fire-roasted chiles (sans heat, of course), roasted corn on the cob. They’ve used some sort of herbal bitterning agent in stead of hops and it’s quite woody.
