On draft at Heartland Union Square. This had a yeasty amber/lager taste. Mediocre. Heartland likes to run advertisements with photos of their smiling brewers showing off their beers, but this one is nothing to be so proud of.

Mörkbrun med litet skum! Inte mycket doft men i smaken finns det mycket caramelsmak och humle!

I wish I knew what happened with this one... It was a decent amber ale with slight malty notes. I was too put off by the alcohol flavor in my drink though! It covered any enjoyable maltiness that might otherwise have made this an enjoyable beer.

18th Jan 2013 finds me in New York and the Heartland tap under the ESB.
I found this to be their beer that most suited my taste buds.
Good colouring, red and clean, on top a beige head of foam.
The aroma was malt infused nuts with caramel topped toffee apple.
The taste was also on the sweet side , but the hops gave it a more semi-bitter feel after the roasted malts calmed down in the mouth.
Flavoursome and most enjoyable.
