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.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks to Mike for the bottle! Slightly hazy yellow orange pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of biscuit, bread, lemon, some nice orange peel, grapefruit notes as well. Taste is a nice mix of orange, lemon, grapefruit juices mixed into some nice grass and spice notes, slight biscuit, bread, and crackery malts, finishing fairly bitter, but dry and refreshing. Tasty and very drinkable.

12oz bottle poured into glass. For a spring ale I was expecting something more on the lines of easy drinking without a big hop profile. This one had me a little stunned when the hops were right up front and had a good presence in the flavor as well. Not too shabby.

chickenflea (332) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2012
12-oz bottle. Began with anticipation. Highland has some solid offerings in their line-up. Beer pours a light clear orange. Stiff white head that settles into a rocky meringue-like foam within 5 minutes. Good lacing. Aroma is orange and dandelions with a hint of spice. Taste is pleasant and clean. Not sweet, but not that bitter. Texture is soft. Low carbonation. Refreshing and easy drinking. A dry finish. Not a sipping beer. Tastes best in big swallows.

On draft at Brass Tap, poured a clear golden yellow color, aromas of some yeast, grass, and a touchh of wood. Flavor is the same just a little flavor of aromas, ok beer overall.

Cybercat (3256) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Aroma is yeasty, woody, and rather grassy. It pours a rather wan clear yellow, but at least the white head is thick and fluffy. Malty flavor has a strong hoppy, grassy overtone with a subtle note of yeast and a fair amount of bitterness, rather like an IPA. Texture is rather thin, though it has a good tingle. Though not Highland’s best effort, still worth at least a try. (And refreshing on a May day that feels like August!)
