Kind of disappointing attempt for a Milwaukee Brewery beer.

nice head reddish amber body see through. Somewhat aged funk in the smell, sweet and caramel. Fruity, maybe apple. light feel, hops more in the front with malt in the back. Somewhat yeasty. Somewhat of a german feel to this one for me. Last sip more sour than rest.

Why are so many of these Milwaukee Brewing Company beers listed again for Milwaukee Ale House? They're the same beers, no?

there is really no need for this to be as strong as it is, i find it frustrating to drinkability, and also annoyingly overbalanced. there is an awesome hop nose on it, juicy and fresh and a little sweet, but with a taffy or bubblegum element too, neat hopping for sure. the beer is caramel in color, and definitely has some of that sweetness in the grain flavor too, its only medium bodied, but its heavy a little from the long lasting grain taste, which outlasts the hops in what turn into a tinny finish. carbonation is fine, but the feel is heavy and weird and it sort of starts breaking down into disunity. the nose is the best feature by far in this one. dial back the two row a bit here, and you have something much improved. i think the hops are well thought out, but there is a little refinement necessary on the whole.
