16oz can poured into a pint.

A - Great clarity to the light amber beer, light in color for the style. Big pillowy off-white head holds a huge cap and leaves tons of streaking.

S - Little bit of sweetness. Mild toasty malt. Fruity yeast. DMS, vegetal.

T - Starts with a grassy/earthy hop flavor. Holds a constant bitterness throughout. There is a layer of bready and toasty malt that plays second fiddle to hops.

M - Light to medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. Semi-sweet.

O - Has a great look to it. Little watered down approach to the style. Drinkable but hop focused throwing it off-balance. Malt really needs a step up. Not recommendable.

Not an amber person at all, but what a fine beer. Real mild and drinkable. Pairs well with probably any food.

Not much I like about this beer. I thought it had a strange artificial sweetness to it. The head was a light foam that dissapeared quickly. It also seemed overly carbonated.

Deep saturated orange color, fluffy head of cream colored foam, drippy arcs of lace in the glass. Lasting surface skim. Looks pretty nice for an Amber.

Aroma of yeast esters, some mild fruity apple and plum notes.

Multigrain bread and mild hop bitterness, slightly toasty with some apple traces in the periphery. Body is light and a little watery, light carbonation. Flavor improves some as it warms, might be interesting to try on cask, as i've heard they've been serving it that way.

Not quite a red ipa nor an amber. This is a tweener that is drinkable!

It looks like a nice ESB style beer. Aroma is not exactly a hoppy red ale, but a sweeter ESB. Flavor has some hops, but the milk sugar makes it a bit sweet for my liking. Medium feel with light carbonation. I would like this more if it did not have the milk sugar. One can was enough for me.

16 oz. can poured into a New Glarus glass I got at their brewery during a tasting while driving back to Iowa from family vacation last weekend. Finally found some Wisco Disco at a Viking Liquor in Reedsburg on the way to the Dells. Have seen a lot of hype about this beer and was delighted to finally see it. I didn't get my hopes up on quality, was kinda expecting the worse. Not to worry though my friends, I love this beer. It leans towards hoppy, but not to far as compared to a lot of West coast beers that personally go to far hoppy for my palate. It's just enough hopps, with a red amber taste.. but it still feels pretty light. I'd say it's light enough for a hot summer day and still packs enough punch for any other occasion. One of my favorite beers along with Kalona Iowa's Lewbricator Wheat Dopplebock. I've been on a stout kick for awhile but this is good, have to get up to God's Country more often.

Picked up a single 16 oz can as part of a build-your-own-six-pack at the Stein's Liquor in town. No canning code that I can see. Poured right from the fridge into a nonic pint glass.

L: Pours a slightly ruddy warm amber color with about an inch of off-white head that dissipates pretty quickly to a ring and film that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Slightly cloudy, with moderate visible carbonation present.

S: Hate to say it, but this one smells similar to many adjuncts out there: there's that characteristic stewed corn sweetness with a bit of a butterscotch quality in the mix. There is a caramel malt presence, as well as a touch of earthy hop notes.

T: Caramel and bready malts right out of the gates. On the heels of this is some earthy and cracked pepper hop presence. Almost immediately, I'm struck by that somewhat off sweetness that many adjuncts falls victim to: a kind of stewed corn and buttery sweetness. Now, this one claims to incorporate milk sugar, which could be the source of some of this sweetness. However, the whole thing doesn't come off as well as they must have intended. There's some astringency and a bit of a metallic quality that surfaces in the middle. The back end provides more of that earthy and peppery quality, with more of that corn/milk/butter sweetness.

F: On that border between light and medium-bodied. This one has some good creaminess--perhaps a bit high on the level of carbonation, actually--as well as a prominent astringency in the middle and back. Not much true bitter to speak of, however.

O: I wanted to like this beer (and it certainly could have been an old/bad can), but it wound up tasting a lot like a Minhas "craft" offering: adjuncts and diacetyl-like flavors were distracting throughout the taste. I wouldn't recommend this one: there are better Green Bay area beers to seek out.
