Bottle thanks to SpringsLicker!! I am probably drinking this too soon after shipping but what the heck. Deep copper colored and clear. Moderate white head fades rather quickly. Light lacing. Nice light hop aroma with a hint of caramel malt. Flavor is a little light on malt. Very nice citric hop flavor though. Body is a touch thin. Very solid. 6re99 (19) - Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2005
This is one of my favorite american ales. Deep, crisp pale taste, not heavy on the stomache, but fills you up. after a few bottles.. very clean, stoney buzz.. great beer! SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 8, 2005
On tap at Barley’s Taphouse in Asheville, NC. This is my favorite Highland Ale. Honey golden in color. Lucious green hop aroma. White head dissolves mid-way through. Nectar-like sweetness is the principle flavor. Good mild hop aftertaste. I could easily get crunked on this beer nightly. Unfortunately for Highland, the repressive alcohol laws in North Carolina fetter them to making beers less than 6% ABV, thus keeping the original gravities at bay. Even with such a low ceiling, St. Teresa stands out as a sweetie who will grace any tasting. Disregard any statement that this is an unfiltered beer because it is not. Don’t believe the statements that this is watery, because it is not. This beer is wildly different than the Kashmir IPA, in that it is way more reserved on the amount and type of hops used. Sometimes more hops just means more hops and you don’t necessarily make a beer better that way, you just make it more bitter. I like hophead ales as well as the next guy, but I just can’t eat mashed potatos every meal either. Try this beer. You will not be disappointed. deuce1978 (12) - USA - DEC 24, 2004
Thin head, very little lacing. It is the color of appl juice, but is unfiltered and cloudy. The most distinctive flavor is grapefruit, but it is malty with a bitter finish. This is a refreshing beer, that would be great for summer functions/cookouts. I enjoyed it. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Clear apple juice body with medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, floral, pine. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, light lemon, caramel. Finish is a bit watery and the flavor does not linger. Watery light body.

Dark gold body witha good head. There’s a nice citrus and floral hop character to the aroma. It’s light-bodied, but, with the bit of lime peel hop in the flavor, it ends up being a very pleasant, but thin, American Pale Ale. I like it but it could use more body and more hops. 00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Pours a golden color with a white head. Has a hoppy flavor and aroma. This is ok but not one of my favorites from highland beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Nice and crisp dry flavor with noticable grapefruit subtleties. Refreshing and good. rynoSx (29) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2004
It had a nice malt taste. You could also notice the dry hop taste. It was a good pale ale. I enjoyed sipping on it while chilling and watching movies. grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Pretty standard version of the style, although I’m having trouble dsitinguishing this from their IPA. Many have noted this beer’s bubblegummy yeast. Yes it is fruity, yes it round, however I also think in a very sharp way it is exceedingly dry. VERY DRY! Perhaps this is me confusing this with the hops but it sure seems dry and not tooooo sweet to me. Nose is swiss cheese and malt. Appearance is amber and piss yellow with a treacly head. Flavors are ;actic and yeasty with a piney overtone. Very piney...is this beer different from the IPA?
