Highland St. Terese’s Pale Ale

A fellow homebrewer sent me a couple bottles of this beer from Ashville North Carolina.  I always enjoy trying local craft brews, first you never know what your gonna get and secondly that unknown could be a pleasant surprise.  Tonight hopeful surprise is Highland Brewing Company’s St. Terese’s Pale Ale.

St. Terese's Pale Ale

Pour:

This beer needs a heavy pour to wake up the aroma with a thick head.

Appearance:

Nice bronze color, lots of carbonation bubbles.  Even with a big pour, the beer had a tiny head which dissipated quickly.

Aroma:

Really nice bouquet.  The dry hopped cascade hops are really the saving grace on my initial impression. There were nice citrus undertones which balanced nicely with the hops.

Taste:

A mild maltiness accompanied by a good hop bitterness.  Orange and grapefruit notes match up nicely with the hops.

Drinkability:

A nice smooth refreashing brew.  You can definatly put back a few before you realize.  It’s a good sunday afternoon beer.  Not the best pale ale, but very drinkable.

Tasting Method: 12oz bottle

My Rating: 8.5
