Beer Review, Highland Black Mountain Bitter

Highland Black Mountain Bitter
Asheville, NC
Unknown ABV

Appearance: Very clear, slightly yellow body. No effervescence. Soapscum on top is the whole of the head. Disappointing. 2.5/5

Smell: Bitter, dry, slightly hoppy, with a malt backbone. Very much like a standard English bitter. 3.5/5

Taste: Very clean, almost tasteless. Notes of malt, strong aftertaste of corn. 3.0/5

Mouthfeel: Thin, low carbonation, no particular hop presence. Bog-standard for a bitter. 3.5/5

Drinkability: Lacks character. It's drinkable, but it's just not all that great. 2.5/5

Overall: 3.0/5
