Highlander Brew Co. - Pale Ale

5% ABV


"Bright copper colour; toasted malt, a hint of caramel and a touch of fruit aromas; Medium body, with coffee and dark chocolate notes, nice hop balance and nutty finish.


Our Brew Master suggests this beer be served well chilled and each sip be savoured!."


THE POUR

This ale pours bright orange with a two finger off-white head. The head is coarse and leaves behind some decent lacing.

THE AROMA

The aroma is very light. There is almost no aroma to speak of. Very light malts with no detectable hop profile.

THE TASTE

The taste is very sweet with malt, honey, caramel fruit and a touch of toasted malt. The ale is a full body and has a very thick mouth feel. The ale finishes with some coffee and black pepper.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS

My overall impression is good! It is sweet but not too sweet and has a great mouth feel. This is very creamy and easy to drink, maybe too easy. A good beer for a cool night on the patio. I would rate this ale a 7.5 out of 10.
