Draft at One & One in NYC. I actually missed the word Lager on the tap handle so I had assumed this was actually an English Brown ale. Pours a dark mahogany. Nose is light cocoa and toast. Faded hops are present. On taste, round and soft with toasty melanoidins and a full body. Light hop character. Pretty tasty, really.

This seems to be showing up at taps all over these days. Pleasant, if slightly heavy, nutty and malty.

(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.

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.
