The kit formerly known as three hearted ale

im sure there has been quite a backlash by now, even on the brewery's own facebook page, that they will reverse course

I was going to say "cease and desist ale," but "heartless" is way more appropriate.

This is great advertising for Northern Brewer. Bell's is basically saying that they are scared by how close the beer is to theirs. I'm going to buy a kit now.
