3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Heartland in Union Square with Haeberle, Lauck and Goffman.
I really enjoyed the Heartland Empire State Premium. I think it is one of the best beers made by Heartland and would order again. Hazy yellow color with a light but intriguing aroma. The bitter hops are nicely balanced with sweet malts leading to a nice clean finish.

Very pale. This beer is so dry that it needs something else to balance it out...unfortunately that something is not present in the beer already :(

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[keg, Heartland Brewpub, New York City] Pours a brilliantly clear golden colour with a small, fizzing, bubbly head. Rising carbonation throughout. Aroma is soft grassy hops and bready, earthy malt. Similar flavours. Quite like the balance of the hops, but it maybe needs something more
