MANHATTAN, NEW YORK

Named after a historic 19th century Lower East Side granite mile marker in Manhattan’s Bowery, ONE MILE HOUSE (opened for business 2012) serves inventive pub fare and creative cocktails as well as awesome local, national and international craft beer. A Prohibition Era-styled watering hole with custom wood decor, hanging pendant lights, silver tin-tiled ceiling, mauve-walled city portraits and black velvet window curtains, its overall rusticity creates the reliable Old World ambience.

On tap at Ambulance, creamy mocha profile pervades soft Guinness-like dark-roasted nuttiness (and mild wood-smoked singe). Rich oats-toasted dark chocolate theme picks up spiced pecan, molasses cookie and pureed raisin illusions to contrast light cocoa-dried walnut bittering.

On tap at One Mile House, stylistically advanced medium body (with surprisingly mellow 8.8% ABV) layers expected citric-spiced caramel malting atop dry resinous hop bittering, sappy pine residue and light black chocolate nuttiness in somewhat unique fashion. At the finish, sweet red apple, navel orange, pineapple and peach tones contrast latent vegetal herbage.

On tap at One Mile House, softly creamed medium body brings exotic tropical fruiting to desiccated yellow wood astringency. Dry citra-hopped grapefruit and orange rind bittering gains zesty lemon twist while maintaining a crisply clean bite.

On tap at One Mile House, trusty Belgian pale ale layers saison-like lemon souring and tangy orange-pineapple-mango-melon sweetness atop pilsner-malted oats sugaring. Subtle herbal-hopped bittering, light brettanomyces funk and salty white-peppered lemongrass twang contrast tropical fruit juicing.

On tap at One Mile House, salty lemon-limed souring and musty barnyard acridity overcrowd tropical passionfruit, mango, guava and kiwi illusions while diminished coriander spicing loses resilience above wilted white wheat spine of tepid gose.

Briskly clean copper-toned Vienna lager retains stylish richness thru mild spicy caramel malting and earthen Noble hop bittering.  But its frisky carbolic fizz leaves some phenol astringency upon tangy orange-grapefruit respite while detaining honeyed biscuit sweetness.

On tap at One Mile House, resilient Brooklyn-Portland East Coast collaborative kolsch brings summery saison-like sour fruiting to spicy white-peppered herbage. Salty lemon-peeled grapefruit bittering created by oats-dried Mosaic hops picks up light pilsner-grained crystal malt sugaring. At the finish, zesty citrus intrigue takes command.

On tap at One Mile House. Spreading lactic brettanomyces yeast all over its tart lemon-limed cranberry souring, mild summertime ‘wild ale’ picks up leathery barnyard funk as salty desiccation overruns barren cranberry juicing. Light green grape esters aid overall sourness.

On tap at One Mile House, crisp moderate-bodied pale lager offers delicate citric hop bittering to crystal malt sugaring. Spritzy carbolic spree perks up zesty orange-grapefruit tang, tart red apple scamper and mild spicing. Taste-wise: closer to a fruited pale ale.

Despite destruction-bound Devastator tag, soft clean-watered crisping provides calm base for sweet malt-forward doppelbock. Brown-sugared maple molasses syruping spreads atop dried fig, sweet raisin, sugared vanilla and toffee fudging. Casual butternut, pecan, hazelnut and cola nut illusions dried out by earthen musk. Tertiary chocolate truffle, cream liqueur and pureed cherry notions need deeper resonance.
