look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy golden color with one finger of head that quickly settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass. Really dig the aroma. Light floral, grassy, and fruity hops lay over a dry bread malt base. Flavor starts out moderately hoppy with floral and fruity notes. Relatively dry malt base that is light and delivers the hops well. Just a touch of butterscotch that is common with certain English yeasts. The carbonation is spot on for a light, hoppy ale. I have not been the biggest fan of Badger Hill, but this beer changes my mind immensely. Maybe they are getting their recipes tuned in as there seems to be a big variance in the beer reviews.

Badger Hill High Road Everyday Ale. Proudly brewed in Minnesota, brewed and bottled by Badger Hill Brewing LLC in Minnetonka, MN. What's in this brew: Pilsner malt, British yeast, New Zealand and Australian hops. IBU: 24. Best served in a pint glass. Alc by Vol 5 %.

"Everyday Ale", eh? Not a pale ale? Not a session IPA? What do we have here?

Clouded amber hue, nicely sized, puffy white head, leaving lace.

Aroma: soft and slightly sweet hop delivery, floral and lightly fruity. Highly likable.

Taste: smoothness and softness abound. Light yet luscious malt holds down the fort, delicate fruity down-under hops dance above. Light finish, light body, but plenty of flavor, charm and character. Getting a slight diacetyl feel from the yeast, but it's so minor it's a benefit, not a flaw.

Perhaps it's an unfiltered ESB? With lower hemisphere hops? Let's say it's no style at all, or just call it an Everyday Ale.
I also call it "yum."

This beer pours a hazy copper color. The head is a quarter inch in height, and recedes slowly into a small cap of lacing. The aroma is of butterscotch galore. Yeah, diacetyl. I can detect some malt sweetness, but the butterscotch covers almost everything up. The taste isn't as over the top buttery, but it is still there. What I taste beyond the butter is enough to make me think this beer might amount to something when brewed properly (no diacetyl). The are some nice melon and floral notes that I like in a pale ale. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this beer needs some work, but I do think I will try it agian once more latter on down the road before writing it off completely.

A- Pours clear amber to walnut hue. Light white foamy head.
S- Light yeasty bready followed by fuity/pineyness of the galaxy and wakatu hops.
T- Light tropical fruit on the front end, bready malty sweetness hangout in the middle with a dry grapeskin finish.
M- Crisp light to mid body and easily palatable.
O- Decent Session Pale Ale. Would pair well with grilled foods or just as a stand alone.

This is by far the best offering Badger Hill has put forward. High Road offers a sessionable Pale that is a highly drinkable beer.
