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.

Thick copper read with great carbonation out of the tap - perhaps a fresh keg although head disappeared after a couple of sips. Sprucey nose with slight citrusy sweetness in intial palate. More remnant of an IPA style bitterness than the average American ale. Not as hoppy as described, but heavier malt presence makes this one a decent deviation from the norm. Not my favorite offering from Highland, but drinkable nonetheless.

Got a bottle from an event at Highland Brewery, first craft brewery in Asheville. Beer has a bit of bite, and a lot of flavors that come with being amber. Probably couldn't stomach more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber with big tan head. Aroma is light bread. Taste is malty bready. Some hop flavors and bitter but not until the finish. True to style goes well with salted pretzel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rated from notes taken 4 Feb 2012 -- My favorite red, smooth melding of malt with a lot of caramel that gives way to a nice roast. Easily my favorite red of the 2011/12 timeframe but haven’t drank since then.

Dark amber, clear pour with an huge head. One full finger of fluffy off-white head in the glass. Tons of head retention. Large malty nose. Good taste. Huge malty caramel sweetness. Drinking at the beach and goes well.

Bottle, thanks to Drake. Amber pour with a small head. Nose of salty caramel, peanut butter, brown bread. Taste of red apples, caramel candies. Quite sweet and malty. Red grape. Medium body, soft carbonation. OK.

On tap at Sharkys. Clear amber with small beige head. Aroma is dank, medium body, medium carbonation, and small-bubble lacing. Taste is caramel malt, Scottish malt, and herbal hops.

Bottle. Dark orange color, light head. Very malty and sweet. Palate is a little syrupy with long costing finish.
