Beer Review 56 // Highland Hill Walker by Crooked Mile
Name: Highland Hill Walker
Style: Scottish Export
Brewery: Crooked Mile, Almonte, Ontario.
Commercial Fluff: "Like a friendly greeting on a long trail, our Scottish Export will bring warmth to your table. This beautiful, deep amber ale is smooth and true to style. You’ll discover sweet notes of butterscotch and a slight smokiness with very little bitterness."
Sight: Pour is a dark reddish copper, with a little fizzy off white head. Standard looking for the style.
Aroma: Dark fruits, roasted malts and some gentle coffee aromas.
Taste: Pretty gentle and mellow all round. Malt flavours, some hints of coffee and a light bitter finish.
Would I buy it again? Sure. Very easy drinking and a solid example of the style. Will it blow your socks off? No. Is it good for drinking a few in the row hell ya!
