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.

Bottle pour. Nice Amber color with a half a finger head. Good roasty, malty taste up front, but too much bitterness for me. Okay, but there are better ambers out there.

Pours an expected, amber, with healthy but quickly disappearing light khaki head. Taste is smooth with some roast, sweetness, fruitiness and bitterness. The sweetness is almost artificial but not overpowering, and the toast adds a nice dimension. Overall, easy drinking and flavorful. Pretty good!

Tap @ the Ritz Carlton, Buckhead, Georgia. Lovely red pour with beige head that dies too fast. Light nose of caramel, bakery, and cashews. Tastes very much like it smells. Not perfect but quite nice.

Highland Gaelic Ale is an above average table beer great with food. Moderate aroma of malt rising from a dark brown pour with an ample head. Taste is malty balanced nicely with hop flavors. Gaelic Ale is a great everyday beer but not particularly outstanding.

Draft at a FATZ in Asheville, NC served in a pint glass; clear reddish-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness and mild citrus hops. Taste adds some bread, fruitiness and faint spice. Light body, moderate-low carbonation, crisp, dry with clean sweet finish. Good amber ale, better than average.

Great beer, very balanced and smooth. I'd love to have it again but my brother brought it to Seattle from Ashville. The one thing holding this beer back is the name and color. I expected a red beer.

Rather sour for my taste. Appearance and aroma aren't off putting at all, though. Won't buy again

Drank on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Raleigh, poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice dark amber color with light beige head. Couldn’t pick up on any distinctive aromas. But has nice flavor and very well balanced, you can taste the hops along with everything else!
