3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours golden light with small head. Not my favorite style. Tastes stale and bready. Not good to me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Not a bad pale. Just an average beer all around but still very drinkable and pleasurable.
