COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden pale having a slightly malty body balanced by an assertive American hop flavor. This pale ale displays a delicate hop nose due to the process of dry hopping with whole leaf Cascade. A crisp and refreshing beer perfect for any occasion.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Aroma is hops with citrus notes and some pine. Pours light golden colored tinged in amber with a thin, white head. Start out smooth with pine resiny notes and some citrus. Finishes dry with a touch of hops at the end. Refreshing pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromas of floral and sharp grassy hops. Clear orange-amber with a somewhat lasting small white head. Dry with a clean, well balanced flavor including nutty malts, golden ale yeastiness, and American hops with crispy acidity. Light bodied with great carbonation, and a very clean finish.

Appearance: seems a medium brownish amber at first, but proper backlight reveals a deep golden-orange beer, perfectly clear, with a dense, creamy near white head of two fingers slowly shrinking to a fat cap and leaving rich swathes of lace. Aroma: hops and malt are evenly mixed in the nose: grapefruit, blood orange, hint of lime for the hops; graham cracker, honey smacks, light molasses on the malt. Taste: flavors are not as rich as the aroma: there is some bitter citrus at the fore, with a well-balanced malt undertone that has some good sweetness to it. Finish: slick and smooth, with a creamy, very light palate that borders a couple notches better than watery; the last flavors I get, lasting just a few seconds after each sip, is a candied fruit and sweet bread flavor reminiscent of Italian holiday fruitcake. Notes: If this beer had the palate and flavor to match the appearance and, to a lesser extent, the aroma, it would be a nearly perfect pale ale. Even so, malt and hops are in perfect balance. I just wish the flavors and palate were a tad more bold.

Pours clear golden with carbonation bubbles and a small white head. Aroma is mild pine and citrus. Tastes crisp with some malt and a mild hoppy finish balanced with a touch of citrus (resolves to grapefruit). Not a lot of depth but easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks, Chris! Pours a pale, clear gold with a small white head. Very light, even for the style. Aroma of pale and toasted malts, crackers, cereal- not getting any hops here, just a variety of lighter malts. Same with the flavor, with crackers, straw, pale malts, and maybe a bit of grass. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. I’ve been a fan of other Highland stuff in the past. This is a little disappointing.

12 ounce bottle shared at b3shine’s. Pours a lighter gold with no head. Aroma is grainy and neutral. Dry and a lite herbal on the taste. Lighter on the palate.

foyle (254) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: 3/4” white head with leaves decent lacing on the glass. Color is gold and mostly clear. Significant carbonation bubbles streaming up. Aroma: Strong aroma of citrus & floral hops dominate the smell with some mild yeast and malt aroma in the background. Mouthfeel: fairly light and watery with a refreshing finish. Flavor: Differs widely from the aroma – although the hops are evident they are well balanced by a malt that presents cracker and yeast roll flavors. Overall: This a very pleasant session ale that will pair well with many meals, but can also be enjoyed as a stand alone.
