If I’m not mistaken, this is Highlands most popular ale despite this, it’s not their best. But then again, it is still a Highland and one of the better domestic ales you’ll ever find.

Drank on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Raleigh, poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice dark amber color with light beige head. Couldn’t pick up on any distinctive aromas. But has nice flavor and very well balanced, you can taste the hops along with everything else!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden-red with a slight off-white head. Nose is fairly generic amber ale and not very potent. This pattern holds for the flavor; it’s a decent, drinkable beer not no part of it stands out in a meaningful way.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
