2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with an almost non existant off white head. Very malty nose with a faint trace of hops. Taste is predominately malty with some light hop bitterness. Seems more like a mediocre Oktoberfest Kind of boring for an Amber Ale. Thanks to Thaichile.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle pours a nice autumn oak leaf orange-brown with a light off-white head. Aromas of roasted pecan, malts and flowery hops. Sweet malty flavors have tinges of vanilla but finish with a bit of a hop bite which smooths out the overall flavor. A bit light on the mouthfeel but a very drinkable ale.

If Iím not mistaken, this is Highlands most popular ale despite this, itís not their best. But then again, it is still a Highland and one of the better domestic ales youíll ever find.

Draft pour from Barley’s. Nice orangey copper color with a beige head that goes quickly. Slightly sweet malty aroma, with slightly sweet malty flavor to match.

This is one of the first craft beers I tried, and is still a favorite. Goes great with pizza and burgers. Has a nice amount of hops, without getting into IPA territory.

I am new to the scene but it was just a weird taste to me. Granted I donít know the difference in malt & hops flavours yet. This beer just didnít do it for me. a little too bitter and a different taste than what I expected.

As the Scooter would have said, HOLY COW!!! Beautiful color, intense aroma and full bodied. I could not beleive the perfect blend of malt and hops. Fantastic I will definitely be drinking many more of these.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bar bottle: pours rich amber color with good head. Slightly malty aroma. taste is slightly sweet caramel flavor finishing with a resin, piney finish with a lingering finish Billed as an American Amber, it lacked the hop aromas and clean finish that would place it higher in my assessment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber, slightly hazy body protected by a thin-medium white head. Dry, floral hops almost completely dominate the aroma. Feathery, thick texture. Nice, unexpected bitterness with a pleasant malt ending. I especially like how creamy the body is, but this beer isnít especially complex. It is however, very drinkable. Another fine Highland product.

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.
