A: Dark amber in color with some head. Very good lacing.

S: Big problem for me - not much on the nose. Maybe some fruity esters, but nothing else.

T: Fruity and sour - nice farmhouse punch.

M: Very smooth - minimal carbonation.

D: Just okay for me. The lack of smell really bothered me.

Serving type: on-tap

18th Jan 2013 finds me in New York and the Heartland tap under the ESB.

I found this to be their beer that most suited my taste buds.

Good colouring, red and clean, on top a beige head of foam.

The aroma was malt infused nuts with caramel topped toffee apple.

The taste was also on the sweet side , but the hops gave it a more semi-bitter feel after the roasted malts calmed down in the mouth.

Flavoursome and most enjoyable.

On-tap at Heartland Brewery Union Square, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear dark red in color. It poured with a half finger high off white head that never completely faded away, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of earthy yeast in the nose along with notes of caramel and grainy malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some flavors of nutty malts. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness, which particularly lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The earthy yeast aromas and flavors seem to be unique compared to other beers in this style, but other than this nothing really stood out about this beer as being very interesting.

I had this on tap at the Heartland in Times Square.

Served in a pint glass.

A: Poured a dark, blood red color, with a rust brown head that stuck around throughout the session.

S: The only thing I got was a tinge of malt and a slight trace of melted "Astro Pop."

T: Fairly rich and carmely which took me by surprise. It had a nice red velvet cake batter flair as well as a mild chocolate component.

M: Thick enough and with a pleasant booze burn. The carbonation was appropriately on the low side.

O: This was a nice drinker and the best of the Heartland brews that I tried.
