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.

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.

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.

Bottle 12 oz, Total Wines & More. Pours cloudy copper amber with a small diminishing headleaving small lacing. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, fruity peaches and grassy. Flavor is very nice and refreshing; fruity, malty, sweet, caramel, a bit acidy citric and medium hoppy. Finishes sweet fruity and a bit hoppy.

Originally reviewed: 5/11/10. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent dark orange with a thick off-white head resting on the top. Retention is fair; leaves some light lace on the glass. Scents of sweet malts, honey, and a faint piney resin on the back end. The mouth is firm with a crisp carbonation front, and a smooth finish. Great sweet malty flavors that mix well with a moderate hop bitterness. Some fresh bread aftertaste. I could drink these all the time, and with this beer being sold everywhere in the city, I just may. Much better than anticipated.
