Highland Brewing Gaelic Ale

Highland Brewing Gaelic Ale, 5.5% ABV is the flagship red/amber ale of Highland Brewing in Asheville, North Carolina. This brewery has been in business since 1994. Gaelic Ale is Asheville’s first beer. This ale is brewed with Chinook, Willamette, and Cascade hops. This is also Munich, Caramel 40, Caramel 60, Extra Special Malt. This beer pours a deep rich amber color with a two-and-a-half finger off-white head. The aroma is sweet, and malty, with light hops. The flavor is also malty, sweet smooth with a hint of a hoppy note. The mouthfeel is medium. Then this beer has a malty, sweet, and smooth finish. The aftertaste is a little less malted but has just the right amount of sweetness. This is a fabulously delicious beer. I give this Amber Ale an A+. This is a beer that is worth keeping in your refrigerator year-round. I highly recommend Highland Brewing Gaelic Ale. I can see why it has been around twenty-eight years. Please stay safe, be kind, and remember to enjoy responsibly. Cheers!
