3.96/5  rDev +23.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: on-tap

3.99/5  rDev +24.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: can
