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.

IndianaRed (2738) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Bottle Pours a clear redish amber with a very modest off white head. Subtel slightly roasted malt aroma and little in thy of hops is evident. Pleasant woody malt flavor, still very little hops. Moderate palate and fairly fizzy. lacking any real bitterness and while plain and unexciting, a nice easy drinking brew. Wish I could say as good for the picture on this page.

I like this beer a lot. Itís nice to look at, smooth, good balance between malt and hops, and highly drinkable.

Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Deep amber/ red color with a small tan head that almost completely diminishes. Decent lacing on the glass. Hop aroma pervasive throughout the nosing. Medium body with a pleasant lingering hop finish. Not bad, but Highland makes other better beers than this.

legion242 (2315) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2005
A really nice amber. Poured in a chilled glass by the idiot Mellow Mushroom crew, but very tasty. Good malt with some interesting spice that I canít put my finger on.

Dark amber color with a decent tawny head. Taste is a little musky coffee with some definite caramels. I enjoy a good amber, but would recommend the Oatmeal Porter over this beer

Oakes (13185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2005
Hazy amber colour. Caramelly, earthy aroma with light esters. Chewy caramel malts. Thatís about it, really. Fairly earthy but really simple beer.

(Draught) Pours a deep amber body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of caramel and mild hops. Flavor of malt, caramel, and mild hops.

RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Light coffee odor, sweet nutty taste, mild but good hops, finishes quickly with a light bitter aftertaste. Good palate, slick. Not much head, but a nice reddish color. A good six-pack beer, Iíd say.

PorterPounder (5970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Jax Wine and Beer, Atlanta, Ga - 12 oz bottle. Dark orange to medium copper pour with a thin white head. Sweet, home-brew type aroma - smells similar to Kids vitamins. Flavor is artificially sweet with some sweet brown sugar candy notes, a touch of molasses and maple syrup. Mouthfeel is slighlty sticky, but not in the best way. Donít go out of your way for this one.

This is a very fine American ale. I would love to try it on draft. Very flavorful, medium hoppy with a clean finish. Every fridge in the Carolinaís should have one in it!
