Draft pint at the Mellow Mushroom, Hilton Head. Reddish amber and shiny. Average head that ran away pretty quickly. This has a great fruity, citrusy aroma ... and the flavor that follows is equally yummy. Sweet and fruit-tarty but with a nice balanced body. The citrus leans more toward orange than the common APA grapefruit, but it comes off in an excellent manner. Great beer! (#2828, 4/25/2007)

On tap at Barley’s Taphouse in Asheville, NC. This is my favorite Highland Ale. Honey golden in color. Lucious green hop aroma. White head dissolves mid-way through. Nectar-like sweetness is the principle flavor. Good mild hop aftertaste. I could easily get crunked on this beer nightly. Unfortunately for Highland, the repressive alcohol laws in North Carolina fetter them to making beers less than 6% ABV, thus keeping the original gravities at bay. Even with such a low ceiling, St. Teresa stands out as a sweetie who will grace any tasting. Disregard any statement that this is an unfiltered beer because it is not. Don’t believe the statements that this is watery, because it is not. This beer is wildly different than the Kashmir IPA, in that it is way more reserved on the amount and type of hops used. Sometimes more hops just means more hops and you don’t necessarily make a beer better that way, you just make it more bitter. I like hophead ales as well as the next guy, but I just can’t eat mashed potatos every meal either. Try this beer. You will not be disappointed.

This is one of my favorite american ales. Deep, crisp pale taste, not heavy on the stomache, but fills you up. after a few bottles.. very clean, stoney buzz.. great beer!

Good pale ale light on the palate and not much aftertaste. A good beer to drink on a hot day. but for 8.65 a six after tax is a little high

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....

A very floral beer. The flowery character is very apparent in the nose and the taste. Easy to drink, medium-bodied and finishing with hints of hops. I actually prefer it in bottles than on tap.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 The hazy orange, minimal head appearance invites a floral, citrus aroma. A medium-bitter greeting offers a complimentary bitter goodbye. Good session beer.
