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.

A not bad amber ale, whatever that means. Crisp with a slkight hop overtone. A session brew that mainstream drinkers would find adventureson.

This was a great Ale. I know that I will recommend this to any beer lover and would get it for them. Highland has a great selection of great tasting beers.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 17, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2005 Clear orange with a good sized, small-bubbled head. Rich malty aroma, with a hint of nuts and citrus. Sweet and bitter clash together with no clear victor. By the way, I wrote this before I read the Commerical Description.

ericnixon (740) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Nice malty aroma over a beautiful ruby color. Clean malty flavor with a light smattering of teh hoppy. Surprisingly good from a state with a 6% limit.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2004
A fine amber color with an off-tan head and large bubbles from the carbonation. Toasted, sweet, rich caramel aroma with woody, tobacco and citrus aroma when gently swirled. Taste of strong, fresh-crushed caramel malt with a light but complementing citrus. A great balance and creamy mouthfeel. Even though American hops were used they complement the malt instead of heavily contrasting it. This beer shows finesse and power at the same time.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2004
Pours with a full, light brown head that sits atop a clear deep amber-ruby beer. The aroma is sticky with malt notes and a hint of herbal, grassy hops as well. The aroma is quite intoxicating, with its sweet caramel malt notes. The taste is malty as well, though it is not as sweet as the aroma suggests, and it has lots of toasted malt notes. This is almost quite dry in its maltiness, perhaps there is a hint of smokiness as well. The finish is quite drying with its mix of toasted, cracker, roasted, and smoke malt flavors. This is a solid enjoyable beer.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Deep copper pour with off white head and a robust hoppy aroma. Malty sweetness with hop bite. Balanced very well. Creamy and smooth for a very good mouthfeel. Bitter aftertaste but not much. Looks and tastes great. Definitely worth a second try.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2004
Redbrown with dense beige head. Spicy aroma with tones of roasted malt and citrus. Citrusy flavour with notes of malt and chocolate. Long nicely done citrus bitterness.

Bottled, thanks SpringsLicker! Copper colour, rich head. Medium dry and lightly raisiny. It is fairly light bodied with average bitterness with a touch of ashiness.

An excellent offering from HBC. While a little light on the aroma, the appearance and flavor of this ale make this a favorite. This beer increases in complexity as it warms offering a nice balance of malty sweetness and hops bitterness.
