Fraoch Heather Ale

I approached this with some trepidation, half expecting some floral experience that I wouldn’t like, or perhaps some very weird flavors that wouldn’t sit well at all, but I was very pleasantly surprised.
What I got was essentially something that looked, smelled and drank very much like a bitter shandy (half English Bitter, half English lemonade).
Muted hop and sweet flavors combined, with a pretty dry finish to give a very unusual and refreshing combination.
Light orange color (of diluted dark bitter), with a nice level of carbonation and decent head.
Very refreshing and drinkable. Good summer quencher.
