Pours a slightly hazy deep golden with minimal ivory head that dissipates to a slim ring of foam
Heather is evident at the forefront of the aroma, hearkening memories of herbal tea. Bready malt and a slightly sweet, almost donut character emerge.
Flavor reveals soft underpinnings of lemon, which contrast the herbal, floral heather character nicely. Doughy malt surfaces in the finish, slightly bready, to cleanse the palate.
Body is moderate to light, with carbonation a touch on the low side.
Haven't had much heather in my culinary ventures, so it's new ground for me. Very drinkable summer brew. I'm not a huge lemon fan, but it plays well here.
