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.

3.58/5  rDev -1.1%

A - Flawlessly transparent amber hue and a thick, pillowy 1-finger head

S - Sweet caramel malt topped off with a faint, citrus hop presence

T - Caramel and toffee malt flavors combine with a zesty citrus hop profile very well

M - Medium bodied and well carbonated with a tangy clean finish

O - This is a solid amber ale with an interesting citrus profile. Although ambers aren't my favorite, this is one I enjoy pretty well.

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.

Appearance: Clear amber, good head.

Smell: Solid toffee.

Taste: Mild sweetness, toffee flavor, hint of hop bitterness in the finish.

Drinkability: Pretty easy to drink, doesn't have the tea-like bitterness I don't like in ambers.

Picked up a single in Hudson. I think I had this beer once in Milwaukee, but not sure if the Ale House and the Brewery are the same--they don't appear to be the same on BA. This beer is a pretty generic amber, toffee/caramel with a little hop. Nothing too exciting.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Yet another CANQuest beer in support of New Beer Sunday!

From the CAN: "Find out how Louie died. Louie's Demise brewed with noble German Perle & Tettnang hops, yields a rich and malty ale full of color, flavor & complexity - much like his legend. How to drink craft beer from a CAN: 1. Find glass; 2. Pour beer; 3. Enjoy! Breathe it all in. That's the best way to capture all the flavor Louie's has to offer. It's no secret that half of taste comes from your sense of smell."

Following the Crack & Glug, I had a solid finger of light-tan foam with excellent retention, like it was defying me to disturb it. Color was a reddish-amber with NE-quality clarity. BUPGOO! Nose was very caramel sweet, very malt-forward. I was kind of surprised by the relatively low ABV, given its intense sweetness. Mouthfeel was medium with a caramel/toffee/maple syrup sweetness on the tongue. Finish was super smooth, so much so that I was halfway through the beer before I realized that I hadn't finished my review. Yikes! The ABV may be higher than as advertised. This is TOO drinkable and CANnot go in my cooler if I have any hope of surviving the day.
