Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Pours a red/abmer color. Small white bubbly head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, apples, and a little funkyness to it. Flavor is sweet and malty again, with a somewhat thin boring flavor overall. Palate is thin and somewhat uninspiring.

Great Lakes usually provides exemplary models for the beers they create, and the fact that this brew is merely above average is kind of a letdown. Still, it’s pretty good. Deep ruby amber color with a medium beige head and thin lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and caramel. Medium-bodied and on the carbonated side, with flavors of sweet malt, light hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is clean and somewhat sweet. Overall pretty good, but I just know GLBC could knock this one out of the park if they really wanted to.

tmad (93) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 Amber glow, light beige head. Taste is pleasant, mild toasted malty flavor with a tasteful sweetness, with a hint of fruit. Medium body, has a nice bitter not overpowering hop finish, smooth and creamy. Another fine brew from Great Lakes.

BCAR (223) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Conway’s has a hazy amber hue with plenty of activity going on in the glass. Nice caramelly roasted aroma greets me. Flavor is straightforward: light malt taste with a nice hop character. Finishes smooth and malty.

The color shines from the glass with a reddish brown glow. It has a nice white head that slowly disappears. You can smell a fruity/nutty aroma. The first sip gives a mix of fruit and nuts and honey. It feels very creamy in the mouth (almost too much so). You can detect a nice fresh hop-bitterness in the finish. The mix of flavors is nice. I would like to try this one again.

shadey (2085) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Nice orange color with a rocky white creamy head. Decent lacing. Mild aroma of malt and mild spice. Very smooth mouthfeel. Nicely balanced. I liked it.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Irish ale on tap at Maple Tree in Blue Island. Maybe mine was bad...soapy, no head, no carbonation, funky aftertaste, very disappointing especially because it was so highly recommended by someone who’s beer knowledge I respect so highly.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2005
In Chicago on St. Pat’s Day, some of the bars will actually dye macro-swill green for the celebration. They’d be doing the day a greater honor by serving some of this baby. Beautiful red-orange color with a creamy cream-colored head, this has a hoppy, toasty, sweet malt aroma that entices. It’s got a creamy-yet-carbonated mouthfeel filled with sweet malty flavors, nuttiness, fruitiness, and a nice bitter hop counterbalance. Nice crisp finish. I like Great Lakes more with each of their beers that I try.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Pours a hazy glowing amber with a nice creamy off white head that leaves sheets of lace in my glass. Sweet fruity aromas, nutty, buttery, toasty and sweet fruity flavors. Medium bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel, finishes on the sweet side. Another good one from this brewery.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Light aroma of toasted malt and ripe fruit. Clear copper color, thin off-white head. Richer-than-expected sweet malty flavor, moderate caramel, with light fruity notes and faint herbal hops. Medium body and smooth. One of the few examples of this style that I’ve actually enjoyed, much more flavorful than most Irish ales.
