Wow, I never reviewed this from either brewery? OK, well this was the second beer I had when visiting Milwaukee back in 2001. Kind of a thicker brown ale appearance, small head. Toffee and bready aroma, not much in the way of hops.

More toffee in the taste, a weird kind of heavy walnut wood flavor to it. A dark bread kind of breadiness is the vibe. Extremely faint peat malt smokiness to it, along with vanilla, a little bit of caramel too. All in all, it works, not my favorite style, but it was appreciable. Would recommend to people who don't like hops, love malt bombs that are still drinkable.

12oz bottle, newer label than pictured, featuring an MKE logo. Pours hazy amber with a foamy off-white head that holds decent retention and leaves a little lacing on the glass. Aromas are sweet, caramel, fruity, and slight floral hop in the background. Tastes are toasted grain, caramel malt, bready, herbal hop, but there are some off-flavors - slightly medicinal with trace infection flavors on the finish. Mouth-feel is on the thin side of medium, sharp and tingly on the palate. Overall - this brewery is new to my area, and I had a good experience with their Pull Chain Pale Ale, but this was just bad. The potential was there, but quality control was not.

A - Really nice amber pour. Large tan head that leaves some spotty lacing. Somewhat of a haze to it.

S - There is a light toastiness to the beer. Mild caramel malts give off a little bit of sweetness.

T - Starts with some toasty sweetness when joined by a lightly bittered herbal hop flavor. The hop flavor then subdues to a tiny gentle finish.

M - Semi-sweet, medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.

O - The large head given off was impressive. I also enjoyed the light toastiness in the smell but it never had much depth overall. The flavor was balanced and had the correct idea of a good amber ale but lacked dimensions of flavor.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I'm gonna kill you so sweet, I'm-a make a beer from the runoff... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunrise amber topped by over a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises light orange zest and very mild toffee. The taste brings in more of the same, really, though the orange is now kinda rindier than before, and the toffee is an afterthought in the background. There really isn't much of anything going on here, and what is there isn't great. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly creamy feel. Overall, a middling beer: not much character and nothing that makes me wanna go out and buy another bottle, much less a sixer or more.

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

A - Flawlessly transparent amber hue and a thick, pillowy 1-finger head

S - Sweet caramel malt topped off with a faint, citrus hop presence

T - Caramel and toffee malt flavors combine with a zesty citrus hop profile very well

M - Medium bodied and well carbonated with a tangy clean finish

O - This is a solid amber ale with an interesting citrus profile. Although ambers aren't my favorite, this is one I enjoy pretty well.

Darkish amber color with a massive head that had excellant retention. The head settles to a thick cap. Heavy lacing is left on the glass.

Aroma of sweet caramel malt. Just a faint hop aroma of some earthiness and herbs.

Like the aroma the flavor is largely caramel malt. Slightly bready. Semi-sweet overall. A little earthiness from the hops. I would of liked more hops and bitterness here. Listed as 24 IBUs.

Surprising robust body for a low ABV amber ale. Nicely carbonated as well.

A well crafted ale that has an attractive ABV to spend an evening with. Easy to drink.
