This American Pale Ale is meticulously handcrafted for full floral hop aroma and flavor. Brewed with grains from America's heartland - Simcoe for bittering, Amarillo and Cascade (both dry hopped) for aromatics - this beer finishes crisp and clean. Have a few and your freshly mowed lawn will still have arrow-straight lines.

A: A cloudy lager body, with lively carbonation and a bleach white lasting head. The light lacing is enough to reveal its non-lager being.

S: Light funky hops with a touch of citrus. A sprinkle of grains on the backend.

T: Hollow dry hops lead the way into a grainy middle and a flat finish.

M: Very slight tickle from the hops midway lead into a dry finish.

Certainly sessionable, but not much else to say.

Another fairly mediocre low abv beer. I'm all for session beers- I wish there were more of them, but I'm beginning to suspect that most breweries can't make them very well, hence their dearth. This one pours golden with a moderate head and constant streams of bubbles. I'd go so far as to say it is "fizzy". Smells, grainy, grassy, mildly bitter, and light. Washed out comes to mind. The taste is a little bizarre- quite bitter but with little discernible hop flavor on a grainy watery base with little overall flavor. Perhaps there is some flavor lurking there, but who could tell with the bitterness overwhelming everything. Unbalanced and a disappointment.

I picked up this Spring ale during the summer and I feel it's a bit too far out of the bottling date. Appearance is a clear yellowish gold. The nose is bleu cheese and pine. The taste is lemon, pepper, and grass. Finishes clean with a little too much tart linger. I love Highlands and I would love to try this on tap during spring in Asheville.
