COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American Pale Ale is a refreshing session beer meticulously handcrafted with a unique Highland twist. Brewed with grains from America’s heartland, using Simcoe hops for bittering and dry hopped with Amarillo and Cascade for aromatics, this beer finishes crisp and clean. It is a plate pleasing seasonal experience.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells and tastes of mildly bitter hops with a lightly sweet but thin backbone. Average on the palate. Okay.

keepersj12 (2885) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Golden with a white head, nice lacing. The aroma is mostly malt and bread. A little bit of citrus. The flavor starts sweet and is balanced by peppery hops. The finish is very crisp and clean. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden pour w/ white head that leaves some lacing. Floral and pine hop notes mix with citrus and pale malts in the nose. Lt/med body with crisp carbonation. Refreshing and nicely balanced malts/hops. Dry finish. This was great after hiking.

drowland (6670) - Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2013
5/13/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Very clear light orange/golden pour with a decent off-white head that eventually fades to a small ring, but sticks pretty damn well and laces plenty. Faint, light hop aroma, mostly dank, pine, and bitter citrus when it shows through. Light pale malt flavor, biscuity, and similar hop aspects as the aroma led on but with a touch more bitterness. Not bad.

12oz bottle. Clear golden color. Thin white head, fades a bit, leaves little traces of lace. Lighter to medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, more dry in the finish. Lightly grassy, floral, lightly piney hop. Some biscuity malt. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet. Decent crisp aromatic spring pale ale.
