elcig (37) - Oliver Springs, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2012
From a bottle pours a nice autumn oak leaf orange-brown with a light off-white head. Aromas of roasted pecan, malts and flowery hops. Sweet malty flavors have tinges of vanilla but finish with a bit of a hop bite which smooths out the overall flavor. A bit light on the mouthfeel but a very drinkable ale.

This one poops a very rich almost deep red, but its clear and clean with a slightly toasted head. It doesnt have an overwhelming aroma, but what it does have is a nice even blend of malts. The evenness continues in the taste with its lights bitterness and sweetness. Its a light bodied beer with a thin but somewhat fizzy body. Im not a big fan of amber ales, but this is one that I could certainly see myself drinking regularly.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a nice red with an off-white head. The aroma is caramel and herbal hops. The taste is caramel, bread, and tea. Its smooth and easy-drinking. The sweetness is subtle and nicely balanced with a slight bitterness.

This was a really refreshing beer. Good on the front end with a really mild finish.

Rather bland and tart, with simply unbalanced bitterness, comparing to other good beers brewed by Highland
