COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep amber colored American ale, featuring a rich malty body. Cascade and Willamette hops add a complex hop flavor and aroma. This ale is exceptionally balanced between malty sweetness and delicate hop bitterness.

Nicely balanced beer from Asheville’s largest brewery. Excellent balance. Not an exciting beer, but a very good one.

Nice malty aroma. Pours amber with very little head. Leaves a little lacing. Very good smooth malty flavor. Nice hop finish. Bitterness linger on back of tongue. Very drinkable. A very good amber ale.

Out of a bottle. Great go to beer that is easy drinking and flavorful. It's hard to go wrong with any beer from highland.

Dark copper color with a nice red tint. Creamy off white head that holds nicely. Smell of bicuits and caramel with maybe a hint of figs. Taste is very malty but somehow manages to avoid being cloying. Finishes stong with some wood notes that hang around in a pleasant aftertaste.

Pours a dark amber with a nice head. Has a malty aroma that transcends into taste as well. Slightly sweet but not enough to overpower the hops! Nice beer to drink and will drink again!

barleynhops (82) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Draught: Appeared a copper color with a small white 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. A good session brew.
