Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2006
Bottle shared with Blankboy, Hogtown Harry, and Dave, courtesy of Harry. Nice dark yellow, small orange head. Bready, tea like aroma - some hops. Nice taste - lots of malt and light hops. Would be a regular local session ale for me in the area. Nice Irish ale, add this to my small list of beers with Irish names that are actually good! (Loved the label and story on the bottle btw).

blankboy (7072) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & Dave B. -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear amber-orange with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma and flavour of caramel malt and not much else -- a hint of yeast, fruit and hops in there. It’s good but I like more hops and less caramel in my Ales.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2006
A ho-hum beer from a good brewery. Clear pale amber with a big off-white head. Seeded rye, toffee, malt, candy apple aromas. A creamy feel in the mouth. Flavor was moderately sweet, caraway, bready.

HogTownHarry (6373) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, tupalev and Dave B - my bottle via trade with Sammy. Amber-orange with a decent off-white diminishing head. Aroma of orange pekoe tea, light roast malt, dry floral hops, lightly sweet. Taste of wheat, sweet light roast malt, dry floral hops and tea again - pleasant. Soft average body, dry, lightly astringent mouthfeel, quick finish, very nice.

zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle - Pours a deep amber with a thin white head. Aroma is malty caramel. Mediuim oily palate with a nice touch of carbonation. Taste is sweet caramel malt with a touch of bread and dried fruit on the follow through. Aftertaste has a slight metallic taste. Overall, not a bad Irish Ale.

heemer77 (5238) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Dark copper colored body with a slightly off white head. The aroma is apple cider with some toasted bread and a hint of peanuts. There is a note of Cheerios cereal. The taste is like fall leaves with some old apples. There is some corn cob and a little bit of metal in the aftertaste. A decent Irish Ale.

ElGaucho (2374) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2006
Draught at Fitz’s Pub, Elmhurst, IL. Strong alcohol nose. Smells like an amber. Nothing out of the ordinary. Slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head and some lace. Initial mouthfeel is a little off. Tastes like Winters Bourbon Cask Ale (AB), but not as sweet. I expected more from Great Lakes, although I submit the possibility that draught craft brews don’t always move that well, and the beer I had may have been sitting in the lines.

jonwayne4883 (401) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2006
a decent irish ale, not quite as good as we had hoped, but it gets the job done. fails to leave a lasting impression or ask for a repeat buy

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Pours light orange with a diminishing head. Nutty and malty aroma. Caramel, citrusy, and even some cookie like flavor. Clean and very mild bitter finish. A very solid example of the style
