Draught at the Empire State location. Copper colour. Sourish(milky acidic), fruity nose. English Style hops dominates the flavour. Fruity, light bodied. Dry and crisp(Maris Otter?). Light bitter finish.

On tap at Empire State location. My favorite of the five seasonals on tap. Poured a clear orange amber. Aroma was spice almost cloves with orange underneath. Taste was like a crisp clean breath of cold air. Started light then went deeper. Had a woodsy taste that moved into black cherry with some slight hoppiness and a taste of copper to it and then a burn again on the aftertaste with almost a sense of chestnuts underneath it all and spice coming through near the end. Would drink again JUST to try and sort out all these flavors.

Thanks to my wfe and daughter who brought me back a growler of this brew from their trip to NY. Excellent, my wife wasn’t sure which beer to pick, but she did good! Great hop/sweet flavor and nice amber color. This reminded me a bit of my favorite "go to" beer - Yard’s Phila Pale Ale.

boto (1850) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Draught @ Times Square Location: This was a good steam beer. It pours an amber color, with a bit of an off-white head. It had lots of lacing. There was a slightly floral, spicy aroma. There was also hints of sour fruits in there also. The taste was dry, with a hint of hops. A very solid steam. Made for session drinking!

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Very good! A surprise, a solid beer for rounds. Good beer to hold a conversation over. I tend to like this style, however. Somewhat of a whiff of smoke on the taste of it, good brown color and appeasing feeling it gives to your throat and head as you sip. This one makes you feel like a manly beer drinking conneisseur. Empire State location.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Crystal clear, bronze/copper lager with a small, creamy, off-white head that leaves a thick, creamy lace. Very pretty. The nose is earthy, woodsy and grainy much like a steaming mash tun. The aroma and flavor are well-hopped with notes of pine, grapefruit rind, hay, wheat and grass. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, bitter finish.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2004
All the Heartland beers I have sampled were on draught at the Heartland Brewery Chop House in Times Square, New York. As well as the beer they also do great food! Deep dark rusty copper hue with a small off white head and good lacing. Pronounced hoppy nose of flora. Predominantly nutty roasted taste with a pleasant hoppy floral finish.

Aurelius (4174) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2003
Faint aroma, but what's there is hoppy and citrus. Quite orange-peel bitter and woody. Initially dry and then finishes sweet. A little unpleasant penicillin note in there that kinda killed the beer for me. Decent mouthfeel. This beer got fumbled somewhere in its execution.

Golden color with a nice white head. Very FRUITY and light. Would drink again.
