Bottle into a glass. Pours a dark amber with a white head. Sweet malt aroma. Not a lot of hops in this one, which is nice. Like this one.

Nice flagship beer anyone can enjoy from a solid. solid brewery. It certainly isn’t the best of Highland’s beers, but I would never turn one down. Nice malty taste and well balanced. Mixes well with chicken dishes too. Makes one hell of a beer batter.

Rcvd in trade. She pours a hazy yet somewhat clear amber and leaves the same colored body with a two finger head that rose a bit and died leaving some nice spotty spider web lacing in its wake. The smell has some malts through bready/slightly caramel, subdued citrus/pine hops only coming through as the beer warms. The taste is mainly balanced through previously mentioned flavors but adds some slight bitterness. On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable, and leaves a crisp clean aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is good for its style and good for me as I would have this again.

Bottle. Clear reddish liquid with small white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, bread, toast, earth and metal. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of toffee, dried fruit, metal, earth and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Meh.
