Not impressed. Bought this beer soon after moving to Wisconsin and trying all the wonderful craft brews available. Poured well enough into tall glass, took a sip... and then nothing. Tepid first couple of sips, followed by that taste of phenol that a lot of the commercial cheap lagers have over here. Very surprised to taste such a limp lager. Poured rest down sink. This beer tasted watered down, and much like a run of the mill, cheap commercial lager. For this beer, read: Miller, poured into a bottle with a fancy label to make it look appealing.

Milwaukee Brewing Company, Flaming Damsel, Real Blonde. So, why is she a red-head? I have to admit I grabbed this based on the lovely label imagery. It's meant to be a high-flying acrobat, I think, but she reminds me not a little of Jean Grey, aka Marvel Girl, aka Phoenix from the X-Men. Enough of that, let's crack it open.

Clear and golden, adequate slim white head. Drifts down to nil in no time.

Aroma, grainy, corny…not getting much of what I like. Very lager-y, which I guessed , and is confirmed in the corner of the label. Inoffensive, but uninspiring.

Taste: Mild malt, small hops, low bitterness, but very balanced. Pleasing and quaffable, but not for me. It's a nice enough amber lager (blonde lager, is that a style?) and I wish them well with it.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Gotta love Paul Simon gettin' stuck in your head. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by over a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises flowers, very light biscuit, and even lighter (somehow) orange rind. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a mild sense of honey-like sweetness that pervades all aspects of life. The body is a light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, an okay little amber lager, something I could see drinking fairly easily, but not something I would actually aim to drink all that often.

Re-branded as "Love Rock" in bottles.

Deep saturated orange gold, lasting head of creamy foam, spotty deckled lacing in the glass. Bright clarity and good head retention.

Toasted specialty grain aroma, lightly sweet and husky with a touch of apple there also from the yeast.

Slightly slick and sweet feel, robust toasted grain aroma, light residual sweetness. Medium to light bodied, lower carb levels reinforce the slick feel. Earthy, floral hop note.

Overall this is good for a no frills Vienna Lager, though nothing too groundbreaking. An acceptable poolside beverage.

16 oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a clear copper, with 2+ rich and soapy fingers of slightly off-white head. This retains with a ½ finger of froth that leaves back a robust cascade of heavy spotty lace. The aroma smells grassy and spicy, with an earthy fruitiness that mingles with sweet bready grains to impart a strong ripe tanginess across the back of the nose.

The taste is similar, with a green hop bitterness that is cut by a backbone of sweet and sugary toasted grains and citric fruit. Those Noble hops finish this strong with a dry and earthy pithy bitterness that lingers long. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with more of a mellow sharpness going on with it. A touch of thick chewiness underneath seems to keep this from achieving a needed crispness in the mouth.

Their website indicates that this is done in the Vienna Lager style and would be inclined to agree, as this possessed that tangy mix of fruit and bread that I find so often in these beers. This was decent but not overly memorable.

The Flaming Damsel pours deep golden/light amber color, it almost has a red-pink hue to it, with a thin skim of white head. The aroma is moderately malty--grainy, sweet, some hints of caramel, inviting. The flavor mimics the nose, moderately malty--grainy, a bit toasty/bready with just a bit of spicy hop flavor. The finish is smooth, slightly dry in part to a medium-low hop bitterness. Carbonation is medium and body medium as well. Overall a decent beer, yes there are better of this style, but I would gladly take a second one.
