3.96/5  rDev +21.5%
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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
