Game Day Beer Review: Williams Brothers Brewing Company's Fraoch Heather Ale
(5.0% ABV) Fraoch Heather Ale pours a light sherry-colored brown with a one-fingered head that lingers like an unwanted guest. The smell is malty and relatively straight forward -- I get little else, maybe just a hint of very faint herbs. Fraoch tastes dry, herby and wine-like, and I get grapes and floral notes on the finish. I'm no expert on this style, but Fraoch is very subtle, not in your face at all. It's clearly different, decently drinkable, and a change up from your every day beer: B.
