Nice hoppy red ale with a white head. Not much aroma, but has a gentle malt flavor. Tastes good. Very carbonated. bsm80 (144) - Massapequa Park, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2008
On tap at Heartland Times Square; my favorite home brew from Heartland. A nice balanced aroma and flavor. Hints of toffee and nut, nice bitterness to it, sweet finish. beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 19, 2004
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.

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 dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2006
This one is nice. A solid appearance and has a medium roasty flavoring to it. Also a little nutty. and overall quite nice.

On tap at Empire State Building, my favourite of the range.
Sweet malt, caoff, fruit, well balanced with hoppy bitterness. VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 16, 2001
Wow! If you want a dark red Cascades laden brew with a nice malt balance, this is it. Nicely done. Very nice indeed. Loaded with hops and flavor. I loved it. Jeppe (2634) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 16, 2004
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.
