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.

rollinsr (386) - Atlanta, - JUN 20, 2013
Pours light and slight hazy gold with a finger of white head. Aroma has good malt character with piney citrus hops. Taste is slightly bitter with the piney hops spreading over the palate and then finishes very light. A nice warm weather brew.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Serving: Draft. It pours a clear gold with a frothy white head. Pleasant citrus and grass notes in the nose. Light pale malt notes up front with a solid hop bite. Not too aggressive, just about right. More citrus and grass in the finish. A nice little session brew.

light amber color; citrusy, grapefruit hop aroma; a dry, citrusy pale ale; very light malt background lets the citrusy hops shine; dry, bitter finish

Patrickctenchi (4070) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle: Clear gold with a frothy white head. Light pine, grass, caramel scent. Taste is barley, grassy hops, light caramel malt. A very nice little sessionable APA.

shrubber85 (7942) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle. Light orange-caramel malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet orange malt and mildly bitter citrus peel flavor. Okay but pretty mundane.

AdamT (186) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2014
12oz bottle from Winslow’s in Greenville, N.C. Golden hue, hazy clarity (can see my fingers on the other side of the glass), with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. Excellent lacing. Strong citrus hop (grapefuit), light spice aromas. Strong bitter grapefruit and lemon up front with the same finish. Fizzy carbonation, dry on the palate.

Gachupines (950) - USA - JUN 7, 2014
Pale yellow with a thing white head. Aroma is mild pine hops with a bit of cut grass. Flavor is floral and grassy with a finish that’s a little watery. Mild bitterness, pleasant but could be much better. Wife: 3.75

Thewade (328) - USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours golden light with small head. Not my favorite style. Tastes stale and bready. Not good to me.

drsordr (1236) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Draft sample clear light gold. Nose Crispin, citrus hop, mild pine. Tatse reasonable bite up front, transition to generic sweet and grainy malt. Light finish

3.9
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
ContemplateBeer (1580) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 27, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 Aroma: Nice mixture of clementine citrus with a little herbal spiciness; malts are reminiscent of toasted white bread. Appearance: Filtered bright yellow gold with a foamy white head that settles into a sticky, bubbly white skin. Flavor: More citrus than spice up front with the semi-sweet malts; malts drop out and Simcoe steals the show with a light lemongrass push toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: This is a well conceived and executed beer.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
Floral, peachy and slightly grapefruity hop with a touch of pale malt. Fairly bitter character, light pale and biscuity malt character. Lingering hop finish with a moreish touch of crackery malt. Pretty nice.
