Heather Ale, 5%

A heather flavoured ale, made without hop. Pale yellow colour and slightly cloudy with a fine white head. As you might expect for an ancient beer style, in particular without any hop, it’s not particularly bitter, instead having a floral spiciness which lingers on into the aftertaste. Sweetness is quite well controlled, giving a light and easy to drink beer. At the same time, I don’t quite find the heather enough to give the beer much depth in the flavour – it seems quite watery, and doesn’t hold my attention. Pleasant enough, but I won’t be particularly looking out for it again.

Overall score: 6.0/10

Gooseberry & Wheat ale, 5%

Site: http://www.williamsbrosbrew.com/beerboard/bottles/grozet

A mildly fruited wheat beer, low carbonation and a pale golden colour. The fruit flavours in this are quite subdued, only really coming in the early aroma, before being dominated by the sourness of the beer and the bittering hop. Otherwise the early flavour is not particularly crisp, but is fairly easy to drink. Not an extraordinary beer, but I’d be willing to have it again.

Overall score: 6.0/10
