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.

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.

bhensonb (11144) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange. Pours gold with a fizzy white head. Nice citrus and floral aromas. Maybe even apple. Not quite medium body. Flavor is light malt with a decent amount of hop. I’d say citrus and floral or grass. Definitely bitter, but this is light. A very good candidate for session or flavorful lawnmower. Very bitter IMHO.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Lowes Foods in Hickory, NC. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized frothy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of green, earthy and peppery hop notes with some pale malts. The taste is very much the same, though a little bit fainter on the malts. Thin-medium bodied. Decent beer.
