A golden pale having a slightly malty body balanced by an assertive American hop flavor. This pale ale displays a delicate hop nose due to the process of dry hopping with whole leaf Cascade. A crisp and refreshing beer perfect for any occasion.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Grassy, herbal aromas with slight sweet malt notes. Earthy, grassy, slight bitter flavors with a balanced malt backbone. Not a ton going on with this beer, but decent and unobtrusive.

Pours a honey copper with very little head and not much lacing. Some citrus and lemon on the nose. Hoppy notes at the back of the tongue, straw, honey. Not bad.

Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a nice hazy golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light slightly foamy lacing trying to cling to the sides of the glass but sliding for the most part. The smell had a nice light blend of sweet malts to slightly aggressive citrus hops. The taste was bittersweet all the way through with a fairly dry bitter citrus aftertaste and just a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but not limited to letting some light smooth crispness to roll around the tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA worthy of having again.

Highland St. Tereses Pale Ale has a thick, spongy, off-white head, a clear, burnished-gold appearance, with some bubble streams, noticeable sediment suspended throughout, and some lacing clumps left behind. The aroma is of sourdough bread, some lemon, and hop resin. Taste is of those elements, with an unfortunate underlying tap water note. Mouthfeel is watery, and Highland St. Tereses Pale Ale finishes dry and easy drinking. RJT

Sampler at the brewery. It poured a light amber color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, floral and mild caramel. The taste was of light fruit, floral and very light malt.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a goblet. It was bottled on 3/4/14. A friend in North Carolina sent me this bottle (thanks, Dan!).

Appearance: Dark amber/light orange, glowing hue. Clear with plenty of visible carbonation. Pours to a small, white, foamy head which laces and retains fairly well.

Smell: Surprisingly muted. Almost odorless, though theres trace elements of piney hops. Nothing off-putting, though.

Taste: One of the downsides of being a semi-professional beer reviewer is you sometimes have to review stuff friends give you that think is good, but you dont. Case in point: Highland St. Tereses Pale Ale. Even though this bottle is only two months old, it tastes much older than that. The hops are nowhere to be found, the base malt tastes very lager-like and theres just not much body here. Though I will say its perhaps more bland than bad-tasting.

Its difficult to describe the palette here since theres little my tastebuds pick up on. A general, but mild taste of pale malt with just the faintest trace of bitterness. This is probably better categorized as a golden/blonde ale than a pale ale since the hops are missing. I get a slightly metallic or minerally taste on the finish with a bit of starch on the aftertaste. Overall, its not horrible, just boring and insipid.

Drinkability: With a thin mouthfeel and watery body, Highland St. Tereses Pale Ale is actually highly drinkable. However, it isnt particularly refreshing. It does leave a slightly dry aftertaste and theres a flavor akin to lager just as it goes down. Though light at only 5.1% ABV, this beer has the body and palette of something <4%. If there were plenty of flavor, thatd be a good thing.

Draft. Light copper with medium white head and nice lacing. Light aroma of resinous and citrus hops with some caramel. Very light body, hop bitterness upfront, and light bread and caramel notes with a dry finish. Overall a little disappointing especially with the very light body.

Bottle. This is a very good pale ale. Gold, color with a medium head. Aroma is a very, very slight spruce and citrus with a floral note to it. Nice taste with the same floral note to it. Pretty good.

Bottle pours golden with slightly off white head. Crisp hoppy scent quickly mellowed by the malt. Well balanced taste. Bright, spicy hop flavor smoothed over with light malty sweetness. Very different than your traditional IPA.. If you dont like most others you may like this one.

Its a good pale ale. Dont expect too much just a good beer that goes down easy. Would definitely buy again but nothing great
