Acquired via trade. This was pretty good, deserving of this brewery's "flagship beer" status. Pours a deep amber color with a medium and foamy light tan head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Medium-bodied with an assertive malt flavor and a touch of hops. Finish is sweet but not overly so. Not bad at all.

A red ale with a touch of roasted malt that makes it on the Scottish heritage given Highland’s theme. It’s in the aroma, and the aroma gives off a booziness far behind its ranking. Quite malty and medium plus mouthfeel, with hop bitterness rounding off the finish.Reddish brown colour with white foam covering.

Tap at Taco Mac. Copper pour. Small head. Aroma is nice and malty balanced out with some good floral hops. Flavor has some sweetness, but it countered with the right amount of bitterness. Pretty damn good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 Bottle... Dark, clear, amber ale. Tiny, off-white head. The nose is sort of non-descript, but it’s up against cigar smoke and something with a lot of vinegar just down the bar. Well-balanced flavor. Medium bitter and lightly tangy. Light-bodied and watery with medium carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter and dry.
