from the sampler at the Union Square Heartland location. My poorly scribbled notes say "Red." "Ambery." and "Good." , which pretty much sums up this beer

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 Really liked this beer. Roasted and delicious. Unique black-gold-tan color that looks cool in the glass. Nice ale aroma, cherry aftertaste? Would have it again, even after our "seasonal journey of beer". More notes: Had this again, on my 22nd birthday, at the Union Sq. location. This seem to be a real explorer’s/traveller’s beer. Ask me what I mean by that later. Caramelly and rich aftertaste on the mouth and teeth. It lingers. It’s wonderful. My favorite non-seasonal Heartland, by far.

Draught at Heartland Brewery, New York.
Creamy off-white head, clear dark amber body. Stout-like aroma of roasted malt, spices and hops. Rather malty and spicy flavor, notes of pepper and flowers. Dry finish. A flavorfull and tasty ale.

Dark copper in colour. Aroma had a sugary sweetness, some caramel malt, some hops. Flavour of caramel malt, citrus(oranges and grapefruit). Medium body and carbonation. Finishes with a medium citrus bitterness. Quite nice.

Tasted in NYC. Tasted at Heartland brewery. Deep reddish-copper colour. Small head, slightly malty sweet aroma. Fairly well balanced but nothing really signifigant.

Can you help me think of a term that would be better accepted by the masses than zymurgical masturbation? My rooster ain’t going for it.

A nice but a bit thin ale. Nice appearance but not hoppy enough. It tastes very roasted which is nice.

If you’ve read any of my other ratings for Heartland, you can see I wasn’t overly excited about any of their beers. This one was no exception. Thin bodied.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Heartland Brewery, Union Square New York.
Nice deep red hue. Light Carbonation. This beer had 2 to 3 stages of flavor, rangingf from sharp to bland, starting with caramel, followed by nice subtle hops flavor mixed in with a hint of toffee nut. Aroma was of hops and sweet, but not too thick.
