COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship High Country is a deep, golden ale brewed with American 2-Row and Munich style malts. Cascade and Centennial are used in the finish and dry hopping. This is our best selling and most versatile ale due to its balance between a floral citrus hop profile and well-integrated hop bitterness. Clean. Crisp. Refreshing.

Appearance: Pours a nearly clear, light coppery body with a smallish, white head. Smell: Sweetish aroma with a smidgen of caramel and perceived fruitiness backed by some toastiness. Taste: Pale malts, toasted grains and a little lingering powdered sugar accent. Medium bitterness, with floral, lightly citrusy, earthy hops. Remains still a bit sweetish even on the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-light carbonation. A bit on the thin side, bordering on watery. Overall: Fairly humdrum, though a few of the cans worked in a pinch snatched up at Publix to pre-game in the parking lot for the Pearl Jam show in Greenville, SC last weekend.

Can. Pours clear golden, thin white lacing. Aroma of light fruit and mine, bread, and caramel. Fairly faint overall with no one aspect dominating. Medium sweet taste. Light body, thin texture, dry hopped well with a light medium dry bitter finish. Hints of the sweet malt are present as well. Nice session APA.

Gasfactory (4) - Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2015 does not count
Good appearance with nice head, slightly floral flavor, mild aroma. Too much CO2 at initial taste (sting), settles down to a drinkable ale

tillmac62 (684) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Pours a clear medium amber. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Very light nose of biscuit and hops. Light body with a texture that has smooth moments. Below normal carbonation with just a bit of effervescence in the finish. The flavor profile is good, in a lawn mower or session sense, albeit not very complex. You get a modest hop flavor accompanied with a modest pine/rind bitterness over a modest biscuit sweetness with a hint of caramel. The finish lingers with a rind note.

SPDickerman (1162) - Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Pours clear copper with a small white head. Smells lightly of caramel and soft pleasant hoppiness. Taste is sweet, caramelly maltiness and slight earthy bitterness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Blowing Rock High Country Ale finishes with a lingering sweetness.

This aroma and appearance are light and smooth. It has a nice finish and is very fresh.

Reynolds314 (3302) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 26, 2015
I hate this. Pours copper color with cola fizzy head. Aroma is caramel, copper kettle, trix, and pencil shavings. Taste is caramel sweetness, old pine hops, sweet and bad.

Panzuriel (1911) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2014
This beer is a light copper brew with a firm head of white bubbles. Nose is mild pine needle hops and maybe a bit of metallic aspect. The taste is slightly sweet with a bit of hops at the first taste, but then broadening to a cloying sweetness in the middle. finishing to a bit of a metallic bitter aftertaste. Body is lively.

Bottle from Carolina Ale House. Banana colored. Good head and decent retention. Hoppy aroma, notes of pepper. Complex, less bitter than expected. Nice balance of sweetness. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
