This was a very enjoyable, solid session ale which I had on tap at Milwaukee Ale House in Milwaukee.

Copper amber, it had a medium off-white amber head soon thinning to a foamy ring, wisps, a little lace.

Aroma was nice fruity-caramelly maltiness with hints of woody herbal hop.

Taste had the aroma elements, nice caramelised maltiness, toasty, with hints of dried fruit, light zesty-spicy woody-grassy biterrness.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a nice, dense, off-white head. Sweet, soft, spicy aroma. Amber-esque, burnt umber color. Starts off with a floral hoppy bitterness and a touch of caramel. Builds into a low-medium bitterness as a malty biscuitness comes through. Finish is floral hops with sweet malt. Good and carbonated; adds a little bite to it.

I like this one. It's a nice, relatively balanced amber; not too malty, not too bitter. I'm normally not huge on caramel notes in ambers, but it works well in this one.

3.76/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is beautiful amber/copper. A finger of buttery, light tan head leaves a ring around the edge and a skim of foam. It features a little chill haze and there is quite a bit of carbonation.

Smell: Rich and malty. It kind of smells like a 3 Musketeers bar. Milk chocolate, caramel, toffee, and very subtle hints of cherry.

Taste: Not so much like 3 Musketeers, which is okay. (I do like 3 Musketeers, though.) Toasted malts are complemented by caramel, toffee, earthy hops (which offer an adequate, beery bite), a hint of cocoa, and a hint of lemon.

Drinkability: Very pleasing and tasty, and also very easy drinking. It certainly is a good beer to toast with.

Warning...do not buy this beer in a can. The one I had acted like an overprimed bottled beer...there was sediment all over the place and it tasted very pour. This beer poured an clear amber but with massive floaties...I hate floaties....usually I can cut it off....but this was out of control. The head of course was huge and fizzy like any overprimed beer. The smell was crap and the taste was foul. I would try this again but not in a can. Overall dont take my word for it....go try for yourself...but I will never buy a can of this again.

This is the foamiest beer I ever had, I got it in 16oz cans and each time I opened one up it foamed over and left a mess on my counter. The first couple I attempted to pour into a pint glass and I never seen so much foam. The taste ain't too bad, but with all the foam forget about it.

Bottle from a custom six-pack in Nashotah, WI. Pours a nice amber body with a large head. Nice retention that brings back the froth again and again. Caramel, and fruit in the aroma and flavors of caramel as well. A pretty tasty brew, but a little too malty for an amber ale.
