KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium brown with a reddish hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that lasted a little while, leaving behind some residue that lasted throughout thus producing some excellent lacing that was left sticking to the glass. The aroma was of a cookie like malt, a moderate dose of herbal hops and a mild sweet yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and had a slight nutty presence with a mild alcohol tinge. It tasted slightly bitter with a hint of toffee and a slight nuttiness at first then became nice and malty and very lightly sweet with a note of caramel and a moderate hop presence at the end. The flavor stuck around for a nice long while, allowing for the flavor of lingering hops to be totally appreciated. Mouthfeel was just a tad below medium in body and mildly dry in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall a nice sweet malty brew with a nice emphasis on hops at the finish.

Pours a dark rust orange-amber with white head. A watered down aroma of caramel and malts. A caramel, fruit, and malt aroma with some grain. A grainy and sweet caramel malt aftertaste.

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.

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