(backlog recollected in abstinence) Tap pitcher, shared at Pork Slope, Brooklyn 09/2012.Thanks to Steve and John for taking us here!). Pretty full-flavoured Dunkel/cream ale crossover with a mellow light malt but great assertive, spicy and UK hop profile that went very well with the delicously dripping swineries on offer. Apparently a Pork Slope mainstay, as it is still on their tap menu after 1,5yrs.

Kelly the brewer brought this to the NYCHG meeting last night. This is a beer made in Greenpoint but under a different label and not available in any Heartland locations. Only on tap so far, he had a growler to share. Pours with just a bit of lacing. Color is a clear brown. It is mainly a malty aroma, like a very light doppelbock. Taste is less interesting, but crispy without any off-putting aspects. So its what he was going for and did a nice job.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Tap at the Brewery’s opening: Deep brown/amberish pour with a stable creamy off-white head. Aroma has a light milky character with hints of chocolate and a cascade note. Has a really nice mouthfeel with the perfect amount of carbonation. The nuttynes is somewhat dry and earthy. Smooth light hop notes in the finish. A solid Brown/Dunkel.

I’ve had this many times before, and never actually rated it. The color is a thin, clear reddish brown, white head. The aroma is true to the style, malty, nutty. The flavor is malty, brown sugar, nuts. The finish has a slight resin bittering. Medium m outhfeel. Decent.

Draft from a cafe in Williamsburg. This brown ale is stout smooth with mild notes of almonds and chocolate. No discernible hop flavors, but this light-medium bodied beer paired very nicely with my steak dinner.

Tap at HDG. Pale brown beer, thin white head. Aroma is very malty. Soft earthy malts and a bit of spicy/woody hops over the top. Flavour is also fairly hoppy with spicy hops, toasty malts and a soft earthy finish. More ale-like than any other lager I’ve had, but it certainly hits the spot.
