egajdzis (6231) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of buttery, toffee malt, straw, and light citrus hops. Lots of malt in this one, caramel and toffee, while finishing with citrus bitterness. Nothing special, but a quaffable session ale. Thanks hopdog!

ElGaucho (2394) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Fresh, fruity aroma. Typical amber aroma. Reddish, brown body. Thin white head. Clear body. No lace. No visible carbaontion. Basic, roasted malt flavor that is dominated by malt. A little thin, mostly malty with some sweetness. Not bad, but nothing spectacular. Session possibilities.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2005
This beer pours to a thin tan head atop a dark brown body. The aroma is much like the Maker’s Demise w/o the oak. The flavor is iced tea and light Noble hops. The palate is creamy and medium bodied. Not bad, but nothing special.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2006 Tap: copper amber with a surprising hoppineess to the aroma. Flavor has a faint hint of sweet caramel malt, and that’s it. Bottle from Gondor has no hop presence whatsoever. Just grainy sweet caramel malt, toasty/roasted notes and not much else.

Miller Park - Brewer-Twins game, MIlwaukee, WI - 12 oz bottle. Light copper pour, decent, creamy off-white head. Not much aroma - a bit of fresh lake water. Some caramel notes. Decent balance of hops and malt. Clean mouthfeel. Average.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2005
Bottle: Translucent copper, thin off-white head, spotty lacing, with lively carbonation.   Cereal/grain aroma, akin to pellet food.   Subtle malt aroma.   Pale malt flavor.   Noticable grain/cereal.   Average body & mouthfeel.   Smooth finish, lingering malts.   Decent, but a bit below average IMO.   Thanks Matt D!

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2005
a copper reddish color w/ a thin soapy head.. the scent was of clean hopps.. the palate was nicly carbonated and fairly smooth. The flavor was of sweeter graperfuit/hopps, and a light touch of malts and something else I couldn’t pick out .. a pretty good weak IPA.

Pours to a large head; carmel color. Nice toasted smell. Mild, roasted flavor, slight aftertaste of the similar flavor. Easy to drink. Not bad.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2004 This is a descent brew. It’s very smooth and even sweet, almost syrupy, dare I say. Has nice medium brown undertones when it first hits your tongue, but then it livens up to its amber ale status. Since it’s the Milwaukee Ale House’s best seller, you’d be doing a disservice by not trying it, but after you’ve had your preview, switch over to the Pull Chain brew. It’s very similar, just more malt and hops and less sweet.
