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 +4.2%
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.

Reviewed from tasting notes.

Pours out into a pint glass a nice deep amber with a minute's worth of sand colored froth that falls back to a skim layer in about a minute, no lacing left behind. Smells and tastes of light caramel, a touch of toasted nuttiness and milk chocolate, a bit of herbal / earthen accent hopping, and that's it. Simple yet it doesn't really need to be more complex than this... Not as cloyingly sweet as you would think from the malt content. Lighter body, medium carbonation. Not an exceptional brew, but not bad either.
