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.

Not a big fan of amber ales and this did little to change that. Hazy copper/amber color with a thick white head. Sweet nose, some pine, caramel, straw. Some creaminess in the mouth, medium body. The flavor was rather unimpressive.

Light to medium red color with a thin tan head. Heavy hoppy aroma. Light yet robust taste with light to medium hop sweetness.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Low intensity aroma is grassy and slightly smoky. Rich amber in color with an attractive thumb thick off-white head. Toasty malts in the fore, very creamy mouthfeel for this style, something almost spicy in the finish. Smooth caramel malt backbone throughout the entire range. Has a great overall feel to it...a heft if you will. Very freaking nicely done amber ale-a style you donít see much innovation in.

From the tap, pours a dark amber with a light white head on the edge. Smells malty and fruity, some hops. Tastes of malts and light hops, lightly bitter at the end.

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Pours deep amber with frothy tan head. Nose is malty with a subtle smokiness and hop notes. Flavor is dry and malty, a faint hop btterness follows it up. Good, but a little drab.

decaturstevo (5742) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Poured a rich amber with low to medium head. Aroma hard for me to tell it seemed to me like most beers Iíve tried it smelled alot like it tasted. Toasted not burnt malt taste that was smooth. Hops that I enjoyed not hardly as much bite as I like but really good. A beer I could drink regular @ 5.8 I wish it was available in Tenn.

BobbyW3363 (154) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Deep, slightly hazy red-amber color, medium off-white head. Light aroma of caramel malts and some dark fruit. Malty flavor with some bite to it. Decent hop bitterness. Lighter bodied, finish is malty with some dryness. Decent beer, but not "exceptionally balanced".

Great, great, great ale. Maybe not Highlandís best, but itís their most marketable. Perfect for a wide drinking audience (not to meantion a concert) This is a VERY popular beer around western NC. I think the perfect balance is the key to itís complexity.
