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.

Thanks to Suttree for this’n. Fairly nice to poat this golden jewel. Thin head with some life. Has a yeasty and clover honey nose. Slight bitterness and a touch of citrus. Malty for a pale, but by no means off. I like the yeasty quality, but I’d bet this one is fast attenuating and much better when fresh.

Poured a hazy orange with a big white head. Aroma of fresh citrus hops and oranges. Flavor has a good amount of hop flavor that goes to a pleasant bitter finish. Caramel malt trys to hide underneath. Medium body. I was surprised by the amount of flavor this beer had. I was expecting much less.

Hazy gold pour with medium white head. Aroma of big hops, spice, florals, black pepper. This one smells like an IPA. Tastes hoppy, with a biscuit/malt element and intense grapefruit and orange flavors as it warms. This one kicks royal ass, even if Prince Charles wasn’t such a wimpy punk. I wonder where he keeps the bag he puts over Camilla’s head....

Not a bad example of a pale ale. A yellow/orange appearance with good lacing on the glass. Some of the usual suspects like grapefruit and lemon in the flavor. The hops are pretty tame but definitley there. A somewhat thin palate. Probably middle ground for a pale which isnt necessarily a bad thing.

thanks to goldtwins. very light pale ale. very easy to drink, but very thin-bodied. this beer could be made very good if the same amount of water was added to 50% more malt and hops. a MAPA--mini american pale ale.

Bottle: Hazy orange with almost no white head, oranges and mint in the aroma, medium bodied, starts and ends very lightly bitter, with a grainy finish.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Bottle in Asheville, July ’05. My least favorite of Highland’s so far. Poured a clear yellowish ornage. More yellow than ornage. Aroma was slight spice and a little hops. Taste was the same some spice and a little bit of hops. Nothing stands out for me on this one and the taste fades quickly. Not horrible but not outstanding/

This beer pours a medium gold color with a thin soapy white head which dissipated rather quickly and left a very small hint of lacing. The aroma was vibrant at first with malt and pine cone relatively prominent and a hint of citrus, but as the beer warmed the aroma disappeared completely. The flavor is light to medium bodied, sticky and bittering with a nice array of hops usage. Easily able to pick up the Cascades here...bitter dry finish, some malt in mid-taste. A hint of leaves and twig...but oh yeah dry! Smooth sticky and syrupy mouthfeel, dry bitter finish.

Bottle thanks to SpringsLicker!! I am probably drinking this too soon after shipping but what the heck. Deep copper colored and clear. Moderate white head fades rather quickly. Light lacing. Nice light hop aroma with a hint of caramel malt. Flavor is a little light on malt. Very nice citric hop flavor though. Body is a touch thin. Very solid.
