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.

Smelled great upon uncapping. Great taste, kind of flat though... Wished it had more bang. I’m a big heffe fan, but this could be one of my go-to’s for after yard work.

Purchased in North Alabama. Rich and sweet taste, but not very heavy, hops are mild (Cascade and Willamette).

Appearance: 2" off white head with moderate lacing. Color is amber and slightly cloudy with moderate carbonation Aroma: very pleasant aroma with biscuit and caramel malts plus a noticeable hop spice Mouthfeel: closer to medium than light body, finish is dry and refreshing. Flavor: caramel, some citrus peel, whole wheat bread, a bit of raisin. Overall: This is my favorite offering from Highland. Gaelic Ale to me is an outstanding beer. It is complex enough that it can taste quite malty or quite hoppy depending on what I am pairing it with. It is not too strong to be a session ale either.

12oz bottle. Heavy on the roasted, carmel malt aroma. Taste translates, although not as unbalanced, with some bread, and hops coming thru. OK beer.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2013 Short frothy off-white head. Clear amber by sight. Slightly sweet light malty aroma with a touch o’ hops. Tastes much the same wherein the hops come through on the back of a sip and slight bitterness aftertaste. Malt over hops but both are there. A very tasty and easy drinking beer. Noticably better in a glass than out of the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle from Ingles in Brevard. Hoppy, syrupy masterpiece. Highland does not disappoint!

A little too malty for my taste but the hops come around just enough to save it for me. The aroma is quite nice though almost that of a peeted scotch, very interesting.

This one has a thin, white head, and a nice malty aroma. I’m lovin’ the clear amber color and it’s medium malty flavor and slightly bitter finish.

Red amber appearance. Nice hoppy flavor. tastes like a mild or well balanced IPA. Slight malty finish which compliments well. Very nice brew!

Pours clear and amber with off-white head. Aroma is sweet and light malts with some honey notes. Flavor also reflects the nose and is mostly sweet malt character with slight hop profile. A very good amber.
