What we love about the Lil Wisco group is their knack for pushing in interesting directions while maintaining what matters most. They make tiny spaces comfortable, busy rooms warm and inviting, and impractical kitchens prolific. Most of all, you can trust them to make dinner fun. With these thoughts guiding our ideas, we created Wiscovation. Starting with the Mosaic hop's decidedly diverse American profile, we buried it all in the middle of the boil so it would pop without overpowering the aromas of the restaurants. In the interest of pairing well with the varied fair of Lil Wisco's menus, we went with a 6% ABV and hearty malts. We then added milk because they are Wisconsin and we are Carton. Drink Wiscovation because you're out and it's fun.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: A nice amber color with a good white head that leaves good lacing

Smell: A nice herbal hoppy aroma, some caramel malts

Taste: Caramel, light fruit, bread, nice herbal hops without too much bitterness. Some distinct creaminess and sweetness on the back end

Feel: Light to medium body, good carbonation

Overall: An interesting beer for sure, but not something that I would seek out. Carton is always coming up with some interesting and good beer!

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a murky hazy dark amber hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a balmy herbal hop and toasted caramel.

The taste offered an upfront hop spice and secondary toasted malt.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty hop forward ale. (374 characters)

A clean amber pour with a finger of head, creamy lacing left behind. Aromas of sweet malt, nutty, biscuity, with a "sourness" reminiscent to a Berliner. The flavor on this is great, roasted grain profile like an amber, hoppy herbal bitterness, with a great bready yeasty finish. Drinks much like an ESB.. Well carbonated with a medium body on the lighter side.

A fantastic take on the cream ale style. Pick up a growler while its still around! (444 characters)

Listed as red cream ale...going with cream ale as it reminded me more of that than a normal red ale.

From 08/07/13 notes. Had on tap at Stag's Head in NYC.

a - Pours a deep amber color with one inch of creamy off white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of caramel malts, bready malts, toasted malts, toffee, some light fruits, and light vanilla. Nice nose, tons of malts there.

t - Tastes of burnt malts, bready malts, toasted malts, more fruity malts, and light hops. Taste is nice but a step down from the nose. More fruit but some burnt notes, and no vanilla.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is super smooth and creamy; really an amazing mouthfeel.

o - Overall a really solid cream ale; I can see some red ale notes to it too, especially in the taste with the light hops. Awesome mouthfeel and very easy to drink, would definitely have it again. (887 characters)
