3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Boise. Pours a dark amber with a very small white head around the rim of the glass. A rich roasted malt nose with light spicy hops. The flavor is nice; earthy, lightly roasted malts, a sweet spicy hop bite. A lot darker than your average Amber Ale. More like a brown ale. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy malt character, very rounded. Auburn mahogany color with ruby red qualities. Balanced flavors with complex hop notes and malt profile. Dry, bitter and slightly astringent finish. Good amber with a brewpub feel to it, truly one of the better beers from Highlands.

Eh, an average amber ale, with a bitter bite and not in a good way. I liked thie initial flavor this one had to offer, but the aftertaste was really bad. Typical in every was you could rate this one in its other qualities, what more can I say. Very average.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Loved the color in this brew - dark amber with reddish tones and a small tan head. Very strong maltiness with subtle roasty tones and some caramels. Not much hop presence, but overall a solid amber ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap: Typical amber color with balanced aromas of malts and hops. The style of this tasty amber is to attack first and then follow it with a sweet finish. This was the favorite at our table of four.
