Bottle. Really smooth malty aroma. Not too sweet. Caramel, honey. Taste is very malty for the style, but surprisingly balanced with a light bitterness to finish. Very good.

Light brown/copper pour with some haziness and lingering khaki head - good lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, some piney hops and nuts. Carbonation was aggressive at first, but faded almost immediately. Medium body and bit creamy in texture. Malty sweetness, with some dark chocolate and sweetbread notes. Balanced, but on the malty side with a dry finish. Subtle lingering bitterness. I like this one.

P: Clear amber brewed tea appearance with minimal khaki head. A foamy halo rest on top leaving the occasional leg of lace behind. S: Toasted italian herb and cheese Subway bread, toasted caramel and orange juice and bitter orange peel. T/M: Toasted caramel, bready malt, orange peel and spicy pippali pepper. Finishes dry with lemon zest and toast. Prickly moderate body. Once the beer warns it starts to have a metallic aftertaste to it. Its not bad but does throw it off a bit. O: Well balance and simple. An easy drinking ale to throw back after a long day of work. The spicy kick at the end really makes this. Without it I think it would be dull.

DEbeer (192) - West Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2003
I am really not an amber fan, so I may not be doing this beer justice. It wasn't bad, but it did seem to have too much of a carmel-candy taste after a few drinks. The aroma was nice, however.

OrthoDoc (189) - South Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2016
Light bodied and easy drinking amber ale. Faint caramel nose and taste. Not much going on. A good beginner beer. No after taste so goes down easy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2008
12 ounce bottle- poured out a beautiful dark tea color with a moderate wheat head. The aroma was dominated by malt. Taste was excellent, caramel and malt with a nice hop bite at the end. Sweet, but not in a bad way. Palate was smooth, just short of creamy. Definitely a keeper.

On draft at the brewery. Highlands flagship I guess... malt flavors mostly, with some cascade thrown in. Considering this is the basic ale from the largest microbrewery (if it can still be called that) in Asheville, not a bad standard to have on hand. Most anyone could enjoy this beer. Also had a sample of the cask Gaelic they had at the brewery they were experimenting with- it was significantly better in all categories... it would have rated a 4.2

Clear amber pour topped with a 1-finger creamy off white head. Nice malty nutty aroma. Toasted, nutty slightly sweet taste with a nice bitter afterbite. Very fine brew.
