UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Not typically a style of beer I gravitate towards, but this is a particularly good amber. Plus, tastes like asheville. Pours a truly beautiful deep amber color ( I am on my first, so that is not the beer talking) with good head retention. a good amount of breadiness to it- malty sweetness and a hint of hops at first. the willamette floral notes are throwing me off a bit. the hops definitely come out more as it warms to room temp or maybe a slight burnt flavour- first few sips were the best. overall a great amber ale- by far the best offering I have tasted from Highland brewing. Having a pint at the tasting room right now. Had to lower score a bit Appearance only a 3. Nice color for an amber but No head retention. Aroma is just ok. Malt and some non-distinct Hard to pinpoint smells. Tasting more bitter than I remember. Surprising For only 30 ibu’s. Feel like I need some food with it to temper a bit. Feel like an amber should be more easy going. Slightly better with 1/2 the pint gone As it warms up. Just ok.

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!

kingaugusta (17) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
Pours golden-red with a slight off-white head. Nose is fairly generic amber ale and not very potent. This pattern holds for the flavor; it’s a decent, drinkable beer not no part of it stands out in a meaningful way.

Old rating. Copper color. An average Amber that is non offensive with malt and hops in balance, but nothing special.

Pours golden copper with thick white head. Aroma is all but absent. Very malty, sweet up front and hoppy aftertaste though not too bitter - is that orange peel? Full bodied with light carbonation on tap. Overall really enjoyable beer. Would definitely order again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
