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.

Not the best of Highland, but damn good nonetheless. The hops and malt are very well blended. Very drinkable.

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

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass Aroma- Has a nice caramel and malt aroma. Appearance- pours a murky copper color with a small off-white head. Taste- Has a malt, hops and fruit flavor with little aftertaste. Palate- A light to moderate bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a dry finish. Overall- A better than average American Amber/ Red Ale. I would drink this again.

Amber pour with straw colored half inch head. Malt, crisp with sharp hop bite that doesn’t hang around long. A little lingering bitterness that balances sweet maltiness. Pleasantly surprised with this.

A deep amber ale with a malty back and a hoppy after bite. Reminds me of Troegs Nugget Nectar but less bitter.

Not bad. Crisp malt backbone. A slight hop lingers and disappears. Caramel notes are there but not overwhelming. Refreshing non the less. Paring well with smoked Gouda. Cheers!

Copper colored ale that pours with minimal amount of head and a fair amount of carbonation. The taste is slightly of hops and a a little carmal.

12 oz. bottle into a Stella glass A: Hazy copper/amber color with a tight beige head some of which refused to pour out of the bottle. Head lasts a few minutes with nice lacing. Fair clarity. S: Mostly getting caramel and toast. T: Fruit. Nuts. Orange zest and burnt toast. The sweetness from the smell is thankfully absent. Delicious. M: Lighter bodied perhaps, than it looks. Refreshing with zippy carbonation.Dry tart finish leaves you wanting more. O: This is very good amber ale. Maybe the best I can think of. Highland has a hit and at $8/6 it’s a no brainer! Extremely good.

Amber pour with an off white head. Aroma is slight caramel malt but overall pretty watery. Flavor is weak, bland, and boring. Wow this one was disappointing.
