Hangover (1142) - oxford, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Amber brown pour with a small white head. Aroma is of bisquit and toffee. Medium bodied, nice creamy mouthfeel. More bisquit/bread malt flavors with a bit of sweetness and a slighly cloying aftertaste. Pretty good. Nice body initially but it seems a bit thinner once warmed.

HourGlass13 (1046) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2017
Clear orange amber colored pour. Medium off-white head. Leaves some nice lace. Medium-plus body. Clean mild aroma. Crisp carbonation. Toasty, caramel malts in the taste. Moderate bitter, light sweet. Was solid.

oobawa (1736) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2017
Perfectly acceptable marzen, hitting all the right notes--caramel, toffee, nuts and mild lager esters--without doing anything too remarkable with them. Noble hops add a crisp, floral bitterness to the finish, and the fade grows bready and dry. Pretty orange pour with a beige cap and slight lacing. Subdued nose gives up modest hints of caramel and yeast. Spot-on creamy yet bubbly festbier texture. Not a classic, but drinkable.

Draft at Big Mike’s Pizza. Pours clear amber with a frothy off-white head. Caramel, malty nose with some light hops notes. Flavor mildly sweet with caramel, bread, light malt. Smooth texture, balanced finish.

steelhead3686 (270) - Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2017
This pores a hazy deep copper copper with a medium mocha head. It has a very swee aroma and a taste to match. The body is light to medium with a slight creamy texture.

Pours amber with a white head. Nutty Aroma with some sweet herbal undertones. Taste the same with a little hop bite. To even everything out. Light palate with no lacing in the glass.

3.3
ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Pint on draft at Za’s Pizza Pub. Aroma: Has a pretty full spiced breadiness about it; hop character is freshly herbal and tends towards lemon. Appearance: Transparent copper body with soft carbonation holding up a sticky tan head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Slightly spiced bread up front that is quickly met by a growing herbal hop presence and a bit of lemon; the finish is mostly dry and lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A well constructed example of the style that features a fresher-feeling hop presence than many others; maybe I just happened upon a fresh keg.

3.5
JStax (7175) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle pour. The beer is a clear amber with a white head of foam. The aroma has spicy toffee notes. Moderate nutty character. Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.2
smaynard6000 (1242) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2015
bottle. Pours a clear amber color with small tan colored head. Caramel malt aroma with cereal notes. Sweet flavor with malty overtones as one would expect from this style. Light-to-medium bodied. Pretty good.

2.9
Drjohnrock (841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2015 Twelve ounce bottle from Jungle Jim’s in Eastgate. Nice dark amber color, clean but faint malty aroma, moderate bittersweet flavor with odd vinous/butter-like note. Not the best beer from Highland I’ve ever had.

3.1
tillmac62 (759) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2015
BOD 7/7/15. Pours a clear medium amber. Very good (for a lager) head volume, lacing and retention. Very light nose of biscuit with caramel notes. Heavy light body that is somewhat smooth. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a finely bubbled burst in the finish. The flavor profile is good. Reasonable intensity, lacks complexity but is very well balanced. It begins with a toasty biscuit that is more cracker than sweet. The middle brings an extremely light hop flavor (herbal) and bitterness. A brief hint of caramel emerges at the start of the finish. The finish is semi-dry and a herbal hop note lingers.
