COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A style of Pale Ale, Black Mountain Bitter will be lightly hopped with traditional British hop varieties to balance the malt sweetness yet encourage it to tend toward the dry side.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2010
12 oz bitter. POurs a light copper golden with a thin head. Aroma is acetaldehyde- apple cider and green skins, toast, grass, and cereal malts- diacetyle as it warms, FLavor is a bit thin, grass, green appple, fruity esters, cereal malts, corn and cracker, more slick diacetyl. Thin and watery finish- damn this is weak all around.

Bottle from oldgrowth. Light gold pour with a ring of white froth. Slight bitter, bready malts on the nose. Easy on the palate with a very smooth/bitter flavor.

nick76 (4258) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2010
The aroma is like an adjunct laden macro with only a strange yeast separating it from a lager. The appearance is gold with a two finger head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is a dud.

drfabulous (4193) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Very yellow. Almost lager in quality. Taste of straw and bitter. Ok all around but not much of a pale for flavor

emacgee (4146) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Pours a soft translucent amber with a one finger frothy offwhite head. The nose is earthy and herbal on the hop side, crisp malty character, some sweetness, mild corn. The flavor is a tad grassy, herbal hops, nice balanced malt sweetness, background bitterness that leaves a residual waxy character. Palate has a very nice balance of malt and hops. Crisp on the out. Nicely balanced and easy to session.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle. Solid bitter from Highland. Pours bronze with a small fading off white head. Nose is earthy, light metal, soil, English hops. Flavor is similar--earthy and grassy, light bittersweet finish. Like the lower gravity beers Highland is trending towards.

jkwalking05 (3931) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2009

Butters (3854) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle at decaturstevo’s Februmergency Tasting for those of us that missed out on Sexual Chocolate ’09. Pours a clear golden yellow with thin ring of white head. Aroma of light hops and cantalope melon rind. Flavor is corn with a distinct hop bitterness. Lingering bitterness on the palate. Not bad.

nearbeer (3845) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 19, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2010 12 oz. Clear, burnt orange with a small but persistent creamy head above. Aromas of skunk, dry grain and orange-grapefruit. Flavor starts with plastic orange and cereal grain blend, finishes with some resin, grass, and woody bitterness blending with the other flavors. Nice lacing left behind. Light-medium body is smoothly carbonated, astringent after a bit, and lightly tongue-tingly.

Cavie (3844) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle courtesy of emacgee. Clear heavy golden pour. Almost has a chalky old smell. A sweetness of sorts. Taste is chalky dry with floral flavoring. Finishes like pepperoni pizza.
