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 (6062) - 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 (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Draught at Heartland Brewery, New York.beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - NOV 27, 2012
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.
Tap sample at the brewery.
Clear pretty mahogany color with a small off white head.
Aroma of caramel, nuts, wine like fruitiness and amaretto.
Dark fruit flavor (raisins), round nutty malt flavor, some spicy hops and medium bitterness.
Medium bodied, balanced and quite nice. NYDennis (64) - Port Jefferson Station, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2001
Very Dark for a Red beer. As Venom stated it is loaded with Hops and Flavor. When I am in NYC I usually enojy a few pints of this.
