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

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

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.

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Base of bottle says Filled 02/11/14

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick sheet behind.

S- Sweet-smelling cereal grain malt with grassy mild hops in the back.

T- Bready, semi-sweet malt with minimal hop bitterness to balance. Slightly sweet, very drinkable.

M- Standard pale ale feel with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- All of Highland's beers are very safe. Drinkable, more or less flavorful depending on which one you pick, non-offensive. For what they are, they're not bad but nothing really stands out about any of them. Whatever. As far as variety 12-packs go, the one I just finished ain't bad.

Pours a nice, white head. Slight, hoppy aroma. A nice, citrus hoppiness with a medium bitterness and biscuit coming through in the end. A great citrus finish with a touch of malt in the background.

This is really, really nice. It's VERY well balanced.

I have had this beer a number of times, both bottled and in draft form. Maybe I am a philistine when it comes to beer. I know a lot of people think this one is just ho hum, but to be honest it is one of my all time favorite ales. It smells great, it has a wonderful fruitiness to the aroma, but also has a good amount of that hop/piney resinous smell that should be found in an ale. It has a beautiful color, a hazy ocher with the slightest hit of red. The taste is also very well balanced, you get some of the same notes in the nose you get in the taste, it is also a very smooth beer and one I can (and have) drank a number of in a night out, without getting too carried away with things. Overall, I think this is my favorite in the Highland lineup, but I haven't had them all (yet). Nevertheless, I find myself picking up a six pack of this whenever I see it. I do truly enjoy it.
