On tap in Asheville, NC. Nice deep red/amber color. Very nice mix of malt and hops. Subtle hint of fruit, not too sweet and the finish is smooth and very refreshing. This is a very nice brew. Keep up the great work Highlands!

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a nice red with an off-white head. The aroma is caramel and herbal hops. The taste is caramel, bread, and tea. It’s smooth and easy-drinking. The sweetness is subtle and nicely balanced with a slight bitterness.

This was a really refreshing beer. Good on the front end with a really mild finish.

Rather bland and tart, with simply unbalanced bitterness, comparing to other good beers brewed by Highland
