3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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!)

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
