Headbanger (3581) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes-Brewed by Chicago Brewing Co.)-Pours a medium copper with a decent head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of the same with some slight hops coming in. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad.

Ughsmash (7429) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2007
On tap at Prairie Rock. Poured a clear blood red with absolutely zero head after about 45 seconds. Sweet, candied caramel steals the show on the nose.. not much room for anything else besides a hint of vanilla that wafted through. The flavor was just like the nose.. sweet caramel and candy with a pinch of vanilla.. mild floral bitterness is in there, but doesn’t stand up to the sweetness bomb.. some sharp boozy points peek through for no good reason. Just about medium-bodied and too sweet.

Not a bad red, but nothing memorable. Coppery in color, carmely in nose and flavor.

Had this one on draught in Elgin, Illinois. Your standard everyday red. Quite malty, caramel malts? Not much else going on here.

Color of Killians, a reddish/dark amber with not much of a cream-colored head. Moderately malted in aroma and flavor, but my palate was somewhat skewed after some lingering chocolate from the beer prior to this one. I will have to try again.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 Brownish copper with a modest fizzy head, this has a caramel malt aroma with an earthy, herbal hopping to it. It’s medium bodied and light on carbonation. The flavor continues quite malty with a dirty hop bitterness on the finish. Acceptable.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Sample at the Elgin location. Deep, clear copper; malty, earthy aroma...wet black soil with a few drops of vanilla spilled. Very malty, caramel flavor, with perhaps a touch of mint and oregano. Not bad at all, especially for a style I usually dismiss.
