I had a bottle of this beer shortly before sampling the bourbon barrel aged version. I liked this version better. In appearance, the beer poured an amber color with a slight off-white head. It produced a creamy grassy aroma that really does not do much to excite the palate. In the initial taste, toasted malts stand out the most. The malts are accompanied by fresh grass and the mysterious herbal notes. Lightly carbonated, the beer is allowed to linger on the tongue a few moments before sliding into a dry aftertaste. Amber ales do not generally excited a cult following, but this one is fairly solid.

Wow, I never reviewed this from either brewery? OK, well this was the second beer I had when visiting Milwaukee back in 2001. Kind of a thicker brown ale appearance, small head. Toffee and bready aroma, not much in the way of hops.

More toffee in the taste, a weird kind of heavy walnut wood flavor to it. A dark bread kind of breadiness is the vibe. Extremely faint peat malt smokiness to it, along with vanilla, a little bit of caramel too. All in all, it works, not my favorite style, but it was appreciable. Would recommend to people who don't like hops, love malt bombs that are still drinkable.

16 oz can into a pint glass. I'm not sure why this was added a Scotch Ale. Their website clearly indicates that this is an American Amber Ale.

Pours a clear copper, with several billowy fingers of foamy slightly off-white head. This retains with a ½ finger of rich froth that coats the sides of the glass with thick sticky swathes of lacing. The aroma smells grassy and earthy on top, which then gives way to a tangy underpinning of fruity citrus, caramel, and bread. I'm liking the flavors but this is lacking some pop to it.

The taste has a LOT of citric fruitiness going on with it. This mixes with a malty backbone of caramel sweetness and toasted biscuit character to impart a deep zesty twang to the profile. There is a light leafy bitterness present as well from the hops, which leaves this finishing with notes of dry earth and some lingering sweet fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a bubbly and creamy feel up front that then gets sharper as things pulls together into a crisper feeling swallow. That lower 5% ABV keeps this approachable.

This was a bit overly tangy feeling for me, as I think that some more pop from those hops would have give this more of the crisp balance that it needed. I generally liked what was going on here though. I'd be up for checking this out again in the future.

Darkish amber color with a massive head that had excellant retention. The head settles to a thick cap. Heavy lacing is left on the glass.

Aroma of sweet caramel malt. Just a faint hop aroma of some earthiness and herbs.

Like the aroma the flavor is largely caramel malt. Slightly bready. Semi-sweet overall. A little earthiness from the hops. I would of liked more hops and bitterness here. Listed as 24 IBUs.

Surprising robust body for a low ABV amber ale. Nicely carbonated as well.

A well crafted ale that has an attractive ABV to spend an evening with. Easy to drink.

woodychandler comes through with yet another canned beer. How does he do it? Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a caramel color with a 1 inch head. Smell is very malty, some caramel. Taste is also malty up front, hops kicking in at the finish, some citrus notes. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality brew.

12 oz bottle poured into a MKE tulip
4.8% ABV

A - Rich crimson blood red, Louie's Demise is wonderfully clear with a low off-white cap of foam that settles to a halo of bubbles, leaving specks of lace in it's wake.

S - Louie's Demise has a sticky sweetness reminiscent of unfermented wort from the get-go but the toffee and caramel notes are quickly quashed by dry toasted bread and earthy, grass-like hops.

T - The aroma's sweetness dies, becoming an afterthought in flavor as exceptionally dry toasted malt rises up, trailed by grassy, earthy hops.

M - Louie's Demise has a wonderfully smooth entry that's punctuated by the perfect carbonation level and finished with lingering malt and hop dryness and a mild touch of bitterness.

O - Fashioned after a lighter Scottish ale, Louie's Demise features deeper malt and hop complexity that any ordinary amber, showing through in it's sweet but dry, balanced flavor and smooth finish.
