Today’s Beer: November 30

Today’s Beer: for some post-Christmas decorating refreshment I pulled a bottle of Salt Spring Island Ales Heather Ale out of the cellar. This is made with Heather in place of hops, giving it a floral, herbaceous aroma and flavour. The malts lend a bit of sweetness and it finishes a little bitter, almost tart. This is really drinkable for something quite out of the ordinary, however brewing with Heather and other bittering herbs can be traced back several thousand years in Scotland, so it’s quite traditional in that sense!
