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.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2005
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 (2343) - 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 (13961) - 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.

bu11zeye (12367) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2005

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 (6535) - 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!

On tap in Asheville, NC. Nice deep red/amber color. Very nice mix of malt and hops. Subtle hint of fruit, not too sweet and the finish is smooth and very refreshing. This is a very nice brew. Keep up the great work Highlands!

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Aroma of plum, fig, slight grapefruit. Appears a hazy reddish-orange with no noticeble effervescence and with no head. Flavor is bitter hoppy and resinous with an underlying biscuity malt base. Palate is appropriately light and refreshing, with low carbonation. Overall, this beer is just slightly less than the sum of its parts, perhaps partly because aroma scored relatively high.
