Ron (2461) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2011
On tap at the Empire State Building Location. Nice appearance - dark red/brown, big thick reddish head. Decent hops and light malt sweetness in aroma. Taste is a let down - very watery, some faint roast and light stale hops. This was decent for a red ale.

On tap at Heartland Empire State Building on 23rd July 2009. Russet-coloured with whitish head, quite sticky in nature - sweet caramel and toffee notes abound initially then the hops kick in to give a dry, though citric, finish.

Really enjoyed this one. Pours a red brown with a small off white head. Aroma is fairly sweet. Caramel and hops. Has a nice thick toffee backing with a hop resinous feel. Not a bad beer at all

Dtschirmer (31) - Stamford, Connecticut, USA - MAR 2, 2011
A hearty amber ale: munich malts add a really nice rich caramel, and hops stand out as well. Not as drinkable as some of Heartland’s other offerings, but probably the most flavorful of the regular lineup.

RobertDale (3345) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. Comes a reddish amber with a small biege head. Aroma of sweet malt and fruit. Taste is dominated by the sweet malt, some hops. Not bad.

Dfonorow (1362) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Pours dark amber/red in color with pretty much no head, aroma is on the sweet side with notes of caramel and sugar. Also in the nose is a tad of spice and toastiness. Flavor is quite strange with a hint of toffee and a big caramel backbone. Slightly bitter finish and medium mouthfeel.
