Dry grainy aroma reminds me of pale lager. Bright gold and a small white head reminds me of a pale lager. Light in body, light in roast, ample honeyed sweetness, little earthy hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12oz bottle this ale pours a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma of malt, grasses, honey and some citrus. Very mild, easy drinking brew with a taste of hops, grasses and some maltiness. Great session beer - I had 3 of these put away in no time (I did say they were easy drinking). Big fan of Highland Brewing Company and this one did not disappoint.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom with Chris, immediately upon completing our MBA educations. For that reason, it tasted pretty damn sweet. It was much lighter (color) than I thought it would be.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery on tour. Getting some pollen like and grass like aromas. More American hops than I was expecting. I hear bitter and immediately think English style and English beer but maybe I’m crazy. Don’t get me wrong I like the American hop profile much more than my English brothers over there so that makes this a much more enjoyable experience for me. That experience is dampened a bit with the toasted corn flavor I am detecting in the background. It comes back around again though on the finish with a grassy hop flavor.
