Sampled a flight at the brewery in a small plastic cup.
A=Spot on darker red with foamy white head...nice.
S=Malt, cream, and some hops--a bit of a citrus.
T=Moderately strong malt, with honey roasted nut peanuts, honey, a maybe a hint of cherry? Much more flavorful than Kirby's first attempt at an amber, Wisconsin Amber, at Capital. Still, toned down a bit from what it could be to draw more mass appeal.
M=Creamy, sweet, moderate carbonation. Maybe a touch more body for my liking.
O=A strong offering and one that could draw followers. I'd definitely choose this one over Wisconsin Amber, but would still choose my favorite, Lakefront Riverwest Stein, over the WBC offering if sold at the same point-of-purchase.

Pours clear amber with a thin white lasting head. Lacing sticks.
The smell is of caramelized bread and a hint of sour-ish citric fruits.
The taste is of sweet, fresh caramel - firm malt - with citric, bitter-ish balance in the finish.
It has a creamy, smooth medium body.
A very nice, well-balanced American Amber Lager. Nice hop touch in the finish.

Wanted to see how this would compare to Capital's Amber, since this is from a former brewer from Capital. Lagers are my 1st choice in a beer style, American Macro, craft, or foreign.
Poured into a old tavern glass. Nice dark amber color, and off white head.
If you swish the bottle around it has a faint orange pop aroma, not bad, but a little odd. Bready, yeast.
Taste....did someone just pour me a Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale "light"? I may be exaggerating, but this lager taste heavily hopped, as a Celebration IPA is heavily malty. This beer lies very dry on the tongue. As it warms it takes on a Oktoberfest malt note. This beer has a lot going on if you sit back, and pick it apart. Yet it seems like a easy one to enjoy a few bottles, 5.5% perfect. Nice lacing on the glass, if that matters.
On my second, good stuff. Not what I'd expect from a brewer who doesnt care for IPAs. The hops dry out the malt taste on your tongue, thats how I'd describe it, but in a good way.
All in all, very good in my books. Way to go Wisconsin!

Appearance: Two fingers of bubbly light tan head. The color fits the name, amber. Active carbonation fits for the style, potent but not over the top. Light random lacing left behind.
Smell: Cloves, airy pepper, and sweet amber malt. Candied sugars open up on the body and really pull the drinker in. Toffee continues the sweetness into the finish. Slight vegetal touch pulls it all together in the finish.
Taste: Caramel and toffee greet the drinker. Butterscotch, bready yeast, and oak on the body. A touch of peppercorns is found on the body and lingers into the finish. Cloves and vegetal flavors are subtle on the body and add an extra level of complexity. A pleasant sugary sweetness inhabits the palate and is present throughout drinking.
Mouthfeel: The sugary, malty sweetness combined with the vegetal tones dries out the palate effectively. Carbonation is potent but doesn't really bring the clean mouthfeel one would expect from a lager. Sort of an interesting middle ground established.
Overall: Great offering here from Wisconsin Brewing Co. The mouthfeel isn't much like a lager but the taste comes through for the style. A touch sweet but I really enjoy it in this brew.
