3.18/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Had on tap at Union Square—served into a pint glass

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, dark-red/brown in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: toasted malt and woods

Taste: very hop forward with caramel starting in the middle, then mixing with floral hops at the end

Mouthfeel: high carbonation, medium bodied, bitter start with a sweetish middle and a less bitter end, very dry

Overall: An average to above average red ale that is on the hoppy side. Overall of the three pints I ordered there, this was my least favorite. I would pass on this in the future, but it is worth a try especially for those that are more hop inclined.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.
