2.35/5 rDev -35.1%
12oz bottle, newer label than pictured, featuring an MKE logo. Pours hazy amber with a foamy off-white head that holds decent retention and leaves a little lacing on the glass. Aromas are sweet, caramel, fruity, and slight floral hop in the background. Tastes are toasted grain, caramel malt, bready, herbal hop, but there are some off-flavors - slightly medicinal with trace infection flavors on the finish. Mouth-feel is on the thin side of medium, sharp and tingly on the palate. Overall - this brewery is new to my area, and I had a good experience with their Pull Chain Pale Ale, but this was just bad. The potential was there, but quality control was not.

A - Really nice amber pour. Large tan head that leaves some spotty lacing. Somewhat of a haze to it.
S - There is a light toastiness to the beer. Mild caramel malts give off a little bit of sweetness.
T - Starts with some toasty sweetness when joined by a lightly bittered herbal hop flavor. The hop flavor then subdues to a tiny gentle finish.
M - Semi-sweet, medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.
O - The large head given off was impressive. I also enjoyed the light toastiness in the smell but it never had much depth overall. The flavor was balanced and had the correct idea of a good amber ale but lacked dimensions of flavor.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
I'm gonna kill you so sweet, I'm-a make a beer from the runoff... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunrise amber topped by over a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises light orange zest and very mild toffee. The taste brings in more of the same, really, though the orange is now kinda rindier than before, and the toffee is an afterthought in the background. There really isn't much of anything going on here, and what is there isn't great. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly creamy feel. Overall, a middling beer: not much character and nothing that makes me wanna go out and buy another bottle, much less a sixer or more.

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.

Louie's Demise Amber Ale, Milwaukee Brewing Company. 5.5% ABV. And now we have the flagship of the MKE line. Maybe I'll like this one?
Deep amber/nearly red in color, very short head, slims down to nil.
Aroma: rich and malty sweet, tidy hop presence.
Taste: It's a mostly malty affair, hops are here for balance. Stays just short of sweet, with a flavor an equal dose of fruit and grain. Medium-bodied. Long, malty finish. On the whole, wholly unremarkable.
There are words on the can. Let us read them: "Our flagship brand, this medium bodied amber ale starts with a rich malt flourish that kept in perfect balance by a smooth hop finish. This MBC original is similar to a German style alt bier."
So there we have it. It does taste like an alt, at that. And it's beer, and you can drink it. Not bad, but I'm not thrilled. Go back to step one: acknowledge that it is beer, admit that you can drink it. Prepare to not be impressed, and carry on.
Note: early today, I sampled the Booyah Farmhouse Ale and noticed (but did not note in my notes) that it had a copyright date of 2011. This can has a copyright date of 2013. Did I get a 2+ year old sample bottle, or do they just take their time updating the labels?

12 oz bottle.
It pours a hazy reddish brown with a thick, foamy slightly off-white head.
The nose is pretty simple, some raisiny fruits, caramel, and perhaps some alcohol.
The flavor doesn't go to far, there is a thick walnuttines and caramel flavor, also some alcoholic twang.
It is okay, but nothing exciting really.

This beer pours a hazy amber color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into nice lacing. The aroma is of caramel with a hint of floral hops. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with a little more depth in the malt with some nice toffee tones added to the caramel. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderately low carbonation, and a smooth texture that borders on cloying. Overall, this is a decent beer, but with so many better examples of the style out there I can't see myself drinking this again.
