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.

Thin head, very little lacing. It is the color of appl juice, but is unfiltered and cloudy. The most distinctive flavor is grapefruit, but it is malty with a bitter finish. This is a refreshing beer, that would be great for summer functions/cookouts. I enjoyed it.

Clear apple juice body with medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, floral, pine. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, light lemon, caramel. Finish is a bit watery and the flavor does not linger. Watery light body.

Dark gold body witha good head. There’s a nice citrus and floral hop character to the aroma. It’s light-bodied, but, with the bit of lime peel hop in the flavor, it ends up being a very pleasant, but thin, American Pale Ale. I like it but it could use more body and more hops.

Pours a golden color with a white head. Has a hoppy flavor and aroma. This is ok but not one of my favorites from highland

Nice and crisp dry flavor with noticable grapefruit subtleties. Refreshing and good.

It had a nice malt taste. You could also notice the dry hop taste. It was a good pale ale. I enjoyed sipping on it while chilling and watching movies.

Pretty standard version of the style, although I’m having trouble dsitinguishing this from their IPA. Many have noted this beer’s bubblegummy yeast. Yes it is fruity, yes it round, however I also think in a very sharp way it is exceedingly dry. VERY DRY! Perhaps this is me confusing this with the hops but it sure seems dry and not tooooo sweet to me. Nose is swiss cheese and malt. Appearance is amber and piss yellow with a treacly head. Flavors are ;actic and yeasty with a piney overtone. Very piney...is this beer different from the IPA? G-rat

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Big, bubblegummy ale yeast fruit in the nose with toasty malt, resiny hops, and underpinnings of milk, straight-forward caramel, clove, citrus, smoke, and chlorine. Malt character is toasty/grainy. The profile is big malt up front with acidity coming in after a few seconds, big malt at mid-palate, then acidity and malt sweetness vying for supremecy in the finish. Overall, a more toasty/grainy and full-bodied (though less sweet) version of Sierra Pale. Well done but not for me.

Malty and sweet for an American Pale - which translates to tasty in my book. The palate is left a little flat (as opposed to crisp), but the finish is smooth. This beer almost seems as if it were brewed to wean the hophead into the Kashmir IPA, as all elements are less offensive/less interesting.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Only had 3 beers from Highland (gaelic ale and oatmeal porter -- which were great), and this is my least favorite. Drinkable -- starts off okay, but quickly turns weak and watery. Absolutely no character.
