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.

Cybercat (3277) - 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!)

S_Side_Smitty (448) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2012
Pours yellow-gold with a small white head. Aroma is cedar-like pine and not much else. Taste is light white grapefruit and pine up front with mellow light malts and easy hop bitterness in the finish. A very crisp and clean tasting beer. Like it.

Nice aroma. Appearance was very light -- not much darker than a macro. Not much head or lacing. Very drinkable.

this was on odd beer. it had all the taste and aroma of a hoppier beer, but it didnt linger on the palette like i was expecting. it evaporated very quickly. not sure what to think of this one honestly.
