This is an interesting beer, brewed using heather flowers and Scottish malt. Fairly full-bodied, tasty, aromatic (almost flowery), and an extremely wine-like finish. This is far from a barley-wine, though, so don't misinterpret my description, it's merely a wine-like finish, that's all. All in all, a pretty good ale. According to the label, this style has been brewed in Scotland for about 3000 years. I guess practice makes perfect.
