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.

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 (5750) - 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.

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.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Bottle. Copper color with loose, slightly fizzy head. Earthy, almost powdery feel. Sweet and simple, with caramel and smoky flavors. Considerable dry bitterness at the finish. Gets very whisky-like/smoky as it warms up.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2006
Iíve had this numerous times over the years, but somehow Iím just now getting around to rating it. Pours orange red with beige head. The aroma is toast, grain, and flowery hops. The flavor is quite malty, with an amble dose of sticky bittering hops. The finish is dry, and the body is smooth. I can drink this stuff anytime, anywhere.

21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2006
a copper color to it. Im not sure that this one was fresh as it had a huge murky stale vibe going on in both the body and aroma. It still wasnt bad, just not the 3.9 i usually get from my nc boys.

Aurelius (5030) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Somewhat vegetable, seaweed and western hops aroma. Orange. Absolutely orange. Dry, starchy, well-brewed hops. Medium/medium-heavy bittering. Food pairing recommendations are chili and pork rinds. <Snicker> Medium body. Quick chalky finish. Iíve been looking forward to sampling this beer for quite a while, and I wasnít disappointed. A finely balanced, but sufficiently hairy-chested brew.

12-oz. bottle. Pours clear mahagony, ruby with a small tan frothy head that mostly diminishes, lined lacing. Fragrant floral hop and caramel malt aroma, medium roasted, citrus and pine nose. Medium acidic floral pine hop and malt flavor, oily and metallic finish. Medium and thin body, oily palate.
