Beer Review 56 // Highland Hill Walker by Crooked Mile

New brewery alert. Crooked Mile brewery has been around now for about a year, only problem is it's all the way out in Almonte. So with a day off we hopped in the car and took the drive and picked up some cans. So without further ado let's get into it.

Details

Name: Highland Hill Walker
Style: Scottish Export
Brewery: Crooked Mile, Almonte, Ontario.
Country: Canada. 
ABV: 4.4%

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."

Own Opinion

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!

Have you tried it? Drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts.
