3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2013 12 oz bottle served in a snifter poured a dark hazy amber color with an small and short-lived tan head, but still leaves a fine coat of lacing on the glass. [3.5]
Has a moderately good aroma of toasted malt and a trace of hops.
T - Nicely balanced mix of caramel and other malts with a hint of toasted bread, but has a fine lasting hop finish.
M - creamy with a medium carbonation level and medium+ body.
O - solid for style. Targeted, i imagine, at newcomers to craft beer.

This beer is definitely better from a bottle than a glass...the aroma is somewhat funky (in a urinal sort of way). However it sure beats the hell out of Bud and we love this beer as an all-purpose-goes-with-Friday-night beverage.

Bottle. This is a good straightforward amber that goes down easy and pairs perfectly with bar food. what more could you want.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Metallic smell. Ruby red caramel color. Dry, light, mild hop body. Thin. And overly frothy. Too much carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle at Husk, 12/7/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly malty, with caramel, a little spice, and some earthy notes too
Appearance: It pours a clear bright red color with a small beige head and medium lace
Flavor: The flavor has a nice, not overpowering, sweetness and some balancing hop bitterness too
Palate: The body of this beer is medium, it is plenty drinkable, and has a clean, soft mouthfeel
This is some solid stuff for sure. Nothing to go out of your way for, but it is plenty drinkable, and a solid example of the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a moderate head. Mildly hoppy amber with a bit of nut. Not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours deep reddish with average off white head with decent retention. Aroma is caramel, spicy hops and some nuttiness. Taste is caramel upfront with a decent spicy hop kick. Pretty good amber brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I have no idea why this is Highland’s most popular and most exported beer, it’s definitely not their best.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly malty aroma with a nice layer of grass hops. Tingly mouthfeel. Flavor has lightly sweet toasted malts and earthy, floral hops. Lightly zesty finish. Easy going, refreshing, tasty.
