Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Corn on the nose. Medium malt with a strong presence of sweet corn. Good carbonation but just a tad thin and watery. Pretty decent bitter clean and crisp. Not really special but good.

nearbeer (5132) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 19, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2010 12 oz. Clear, burnt orange with a small but persistent creamy head above. Aromas of skunk, dry grain and orange-grapefruit. Flavor starts with plastic orange and cereal grain blend, finishes with some resin, grass, and woody bitterness blending with the other flavors. Nice lacing left behind. Light-medium body is smoothly carbonated, astringent after a bit, and lightly tongue-tingly.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2010
12 oz bitter. POurs a light copper golden with a thin head. Aroma is acetaldehyde- apple cider and green skins, toast, grass, and cereal malts- diacetyle as it warms, FLavor is a bit thin, grass, green appple, fruity esters, cereal malts, corn and cracker, more slick diacetyl. Thin and watery finish- damn this is weak all around.

emacgee (4658) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Pours a soft translucent amber with a one finger frothy offwhite head. The nose is earthy and herbal on the hop side, crisp malty character, some sweetness, mild corn. The flavor is a tad grassy, herbal hops, nice balanced malt sweetness, background bitterness that leaves a residual waxy character. Palate has a very nice balance of malt and hops. Crisp on the out. Nicely balanced and easy to session.

Cavie (4418) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle courtesy of emacgee. Clear heavy golden pour. Almost has a chalky old smell. A sweetness of sorts. Taste is chalky dry with floral flavoring. Finishes like pepperoni pizza.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2010
The aroma is like an adjunct laden macro with only a strange yeast separating it from a lager. The appearance is gold with a two finger head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is a dud.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Thanks to durhambeer for the bottle!
Clear gold with a small white head. Slightly grainy nose, a little citrus and malt. Honeyish flavor, some grain, slightly bitter hop components. Slightly sticky palate. Not bad, but just like this review, its pretty lifeless.

TURDFERGUSON (4055) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle. Solid bitter from Highland. Pours bronze with a small fading off white head. Nose is earthy, light metal, soil, English hops. Flavor is similar--earthy and grassy, light bittersweet finish. Like the lower gravity beers Highland is trending towards.
