I like this beer a lot. It’s nice to look at, smooth, good balance between malt and hops, and highly drinkable.

Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Deep amber/ red color with a small tan head that almost completely diminishes. Decent lacing on the glass. Hop aroma pervasive throughout the nosing. Medium body with a pleasant lingering hop finish. Not bad, but Highland makes other better beers than this.

A really nice amber. Poured in a chilled glass by the idiot Mellow Mushroom crew, but very tasty. Good malt with some interesting spice that I can’t put my finger on.

Dark amber color with a decent tawny head. Taste is a little musky coffee with some definite caramels. I enjoy a good amber, but would recommend the Oatmeal Porter over this beer

Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2005
Hazy amber colour. Caramelly, earthy aroma with light esters. Chewy caramel malts. That’s about it, really. Fairly earthy but really simple beer.

3.3
bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2005
(Draught) Pours a deep amber body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of caramel and mild hops. Flavor of malt, caramel, and mild hops.

3.2
RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Light coffee odor, sweet nutty taste, mild but good hops, finishes quickly with a light bitter aftertaste. Good palate, slick. Not much head, but a nice reddish color. A good six-pack beer, I’d say.

2.5
PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Jax Wine and Beer, Atlanta, Ga - 12 oz bottle. Dark orange to medium copper pour with a thin white head. Sweet, home-brew type aroma - smells similar to Kids vitamins. Flavor is artificially sweet with some sweet brown sugar candy notes, a touch of molasses and maple syrup. Mouthfeel is slighlty sticky, but not in the best way. Don’t go out of your way for this one.

This is a very fine American ale. I would love to try it on draft. Very flavorful, medium hoppy with a clean finish. Every fridge in the Carolina’s should have one in it!

On tap in Asheville, NC. Nice deep red/amber color. Very nice mix of malt and hops. Subtle hint of fruit, not too sweet and the finish is smooth and very refreshing. This is a very nice brew. Keep up the great work Highlands!
