I purchased a bottle of Highland Lost Cove American Pale Ale some time back and let it languish in the fridge before pulling it out the other night. I had it on draft a few times, but in truth it was never memorable. The beer clocks in at 4.5% ABV and the bottle was filled on 04/08/15 so it was no spring chicken. It was refreshing, but just wasn’t interesting enough to keep my attention. The website lists Cascade hops, but they were muted and hidden and the hops came off to me as more spicy than citrus. Hopefully if they bring this back next year they will work on the flavors to create something more interesting, otherwise this one is sadly forgettable.
