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.

Light copper coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, some light hops and not much else. Light to Medium-bodied; Pale malt up front with some light sugars, a bit of earthiness and a hint of nuts. Aftertaste shows some mellow sugars, a little hop bitterness and some subdued cardboardie malts - but largely nothing there. Overall, a decent amber if nothing else, but really not worth the time, for lack of anything interesting. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle from a beer sampler pack on 01-March-2013 at a friendís house in Odenton, Maryland.

Iphonephan (4495) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle at the Outer Banks of NC. Pours a clear pale amber with a thick off white head. Aroma of mild grassy hops. First flavors are a pleasant maltiness but fade quickly to not so pleasant aftertaste.

PhatB420 (731) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 12, 2013
12oz into a pint. Pours a honey orange with bronzed highlights. Taste is hoppy, syrup, bland, a tad fruity, and dry. Not a fulfilling ale, this ones an easy goer with non existent high fives and subtle regressions. Average body, solid drinkabliity, but nothing to exhasperate to the farmers.

Golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is hops, a little fruit. Just enough bitter to keep it from being water. Itís a hoppy American beer. Itís OK; Iíd drink it if it was available but itís nothing special

Brownish Orange color. Medium carbonation. Sweet fruity nose, but sour fruit finish. Grapefruit, hops, pine, vinegar?. Nice strong beer, but it doesn?t go down so easy.

Well im currently in north Carolina drinking this beer so I donít want to rate this too badly but I donít like this very much. I wouldnt say its like rusty nails but its also not as cold as the rockeys.

This has a few characteristics I would expect from a lager, but this isnít too bad. Pours a light clear amber with a moderate head. Fairly malty for an ale.
