Bottle - from Ale in the Mail. Dark golden color, a bit cloudy. Slight malty aroma. Good - definitely tastes hoppy but malty too. Good plae ale.
Silver can with a server-side label. Specimen gold pour with a tall, rocky, eggshell head. Powdery, APA aroma. Lightly sweet, not bitter, a bit woody. Medium body, decent carbo retention. I was a little snooty on this at first, but it grew on me and I found it really drinkable, despite being unremarkable otherwise.

From can. Hazy copper with a thin white head. Light pine straw, citrus nose, flavors of caramel malts balanced with bittering hops. Pretty standard, pretty solid pale ale. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2017

Aroma: resinous citrus hops, bready malt.
Taste: sharp bitter, watermelon/cherry notes, bready malt.
Appearance: Pours a nearly clear, light coppery body with a smallish, white head.
Smell: Sweetish aroma with a smidgen of caramel and perceived fruitiness backed by some toastiness.
Taste: Pale malts, toasted grains and a little lingering powdered sugar accent. Medium bitterness, with floral, lightly citrusy, earthy hops. Remains still a bit sweetish even on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-light carbonation. A bit on the thin side, bordering on watery.
Overall: Fairly humdrum, though a few of the cans worked in a pinch snatched up at Publix to pre-game in the parking lot for the Pearl Jam show in Greenville, SC last weekend. beerme31 (707) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Can. Pours clear golden, thin white lacing. Aroma of light fruit and mine, bread, and caramel. Fairly faint overall with no one aspect dominating. Medium sweet taste. Light body, thin texture, dry hopped well with a light medium dry bitter finish. Hints of the sweet malt are present as well. Nice session APA. Gasfactory (9) - Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2015 does not count
Good appearance with nice head, slightly floral flavor, mild aroma. Too much CO2 at initial taste (sting), settles down to a drinkable ale tillmac62 (768) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Pours a clear medium amber. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Very light nose of biscuit and hops.
Light body with a texture that has smooth moments. Below normal carbonation with just a bit of effervescence in the finish.
The flavor profile is good, in a lawn mower or session sense, albeit not very complex. You get a modest hop flavor accompanied with a modest pine/rind bitterness over a modest biscuit sweetness with a hint of caramel. The finish lingers with a rind note.

Pours clear copper with a small white head. Smells lightly of caramel and soft pleasant hoppiness. Taste is sweet, caramelly maltiness and slight earthy bitterness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Blowing Rock High Country Ale finishes with a lingering sweetness.
