COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep amber colored American ale, featuring a rich malty body. Cascade and Willamette hops add a complex hop flavor and aroma. This ale is exceptionally balanced between malty sweetness and delicate hop bitterness.

Thanks to southbierbro!! Pours an amber color with a hint of haze. The smell is vegetal, light caramel, fruit. The taste is as it smells ending tart and dry. The body is light/medium with average carbonation. The vegetal aspect huts this one...bottles on 4/10/14.

12 oz bottle. Pours a fairly clear amber with a large fluffy white head that leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma of hazelnut, toasted almond, caramel and fresh dough. Taste is definitely malt forward. Getting a perfect blend of caramel malts, hazelnut, toasted almond, pear, and a slight hint of citrus. Crisp. Medium-light body, slick texture, lively carbonation, medium length finish that is very slightly bitter but filled with caramel malt and nuttiness. A great example of an amber ale done right!

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.
