If you didn’t know before, a Heather Ale is a traditional Scottish Ale that dates back some 4000 years. The Heather flowers adds a very light bitterness to the beer and a depth to the flavour different from a hops and malt style ale. The Saltspring Heather has a mild honey flavour and a touch of floral notes. With a few hops making it into the mix this beer finishes off with a crisp, slightly bitter finish. This beer is pleasant, refreshing and extremely easy to drink. Brewed by the Gulf Islands Brewing Company under the name of Saltspring Island Ales this is not an easy beer to find but if you do grab one and give it a try. You will not be disappointed.
