Hangover (1120) - Atlanta, Alabama, 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.

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.

ContemplateBeer (2019) - 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.

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.

smaynard6000 (1027) - 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.

Drjohnrock (691) - 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.

tillmac62 (688) - 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.

HighlanderOne (1248) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Poured from bottle. Good aroma of sweet bread and citrus. Cloudy amber with a bit of head. Tasting brown sugar with malt and citrus/pear flavors. Also some cinnamon and spice. Kinda different - not bad.

Amver pour, thin white head. Light crisp aroma. Body is thin and easy to drink. Flavor is absurdly light. Watery almost.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle from trio. Pours clear Amber with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has your typical sweet esters for the style with some toasted malt and caramel notes. A slight spice from the hops. The taste has a spicy hops presence over a sweet brew. Not bad

Better than old ipas. Caramel, nutty, light hay. Moderately sweet and bready lager without much depth. Kind of decent i suppose.
