Highland St. Terese's 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. Terese's Pale Ale finishes dry and easy drinking.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. The beer is a solid example of an English Pale Ale.
Asheville has turned into quite a good destination for sampling craft beer and being from nearby Knoxville is a joy! I enjoyed it quite a bit and plan to drinking it again in the near future.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, yellow-gold coloring with a steady flow of carbonation and a fluffy, dense, off-white, foamy head. Aromas of toasted grains, subtle caramel notes, slight bitterness, and some floral highlights. Flavors are roasted and sweet forward, with a buttered toast character, some floral highlights, citrus notes, and a subtle underlying bitterness. Sweet and tangy through flavor, with a subtle sweet aftertaste, as well. The body is light and smooth throughout. Subtle bitter linger on an otherwise clean, effervesced finish. This is right along the English Pale Ale style.

This is a bit of a plain beer. There's a hint of honey. A bit of a celery taste. It has a tinny taste to it. It's not a bad beer at all, but it's very plain and doesn't have anything that makes it stand out.

It has a golden color, clearish, and there are a ton of bubbles flowing up, some big some small. Very interesting. There a good foamy white head and some lacing. There's a nice hops and honey scent.

A- beautiful, inviting golden appearance

S- slight sweetness in the aroma, very mild smell

T-having a difficult time describing it (I'm new at this!) but I like it. Whatever it is it's very mild and subtle, not overpowering. I like the after taste

M- water but pleasantly carbonated

O-delicious, I'd drink it again for sure but I've had better pale ales

Appearance: 3/4” white head with leaves decent lacing on the glass. Color is gold and mostly clear. Significant carbonation bubbles streaming up.
Aroma: Strong aroma of citrus & floral hops dominate the smell with some mild yeast and malt aroma in the background.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and watery with a refreshing finish.
Flavor: Differs widely from the aroma – although the hops are evident they are well balanced by a malt that presents cracker and yeast roll flavors.
Overall: This a very pleasant session ale that will pair well with many meals, but can also be enjoyed as a stand alone.
