COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blended blonde ale, brown ale and red ale.

Crisp sweetness meets caramel nuttiness meets malty breadiness for a grand total of pure awesomeness. This medium to light bodied blend starts with a smooth sweetness and a phenomenal mouthfeel, transitions to caramel nuttiness, and finishes with a crisp maltiness that will undoubtedly leave you wanting more. Minimal hops allow the brilliance of the grains to shine through.

Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Riley’s World of Wines in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear light brown copper colored brew with a decent sized off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, floral hops, a hint of toffee, a Brazil nuts. Taste is medium bodied, balanced carbonation with flavors of toasted biscuit caramel malts, floral hops, a touch of bread crust and a touch of roasted nuts. Finish is balanced with aftertaste of roasted nuts followed by a crisp finish. A nice session amber ale overall.

Poured a reddish/amber with moderate head and lacing. Aroma of fruity hops and malts. Taste has a strong malty backbone with a slight nuttiness. Finish is mild hop bitterness with a slight citrusy hue. Palate was very nice. Overall, a very nice amber ale from Sand Creek.

8/17/14 bottle poured into shaker glass. This beer is a blend of red ale, blonde ale, & brown ale. Aroma is nutty sweet and roasted malt. Mmmm...malt. Appearance is medium brown. Taste is nutty with a touch of sweetness. Malty finish. Slight alcohol tang but not off putting. Low hop bitterness. Blending is new to me and this is a very drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle. Pours like an amber ale. Heavy vegemite and soy sauce in this one, think maybe they are jsut using bad old beers from other contracts to make these.

dlbeer (840) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Tasting at brewfest. Amber pour with white head. Smells of malt. Tastes I a lot of malt and not much hops. Maybe could use more of the red ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dwm1034 (662) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from Brunos in Lake Geneva. Pours a rich red; nose is caramel; initial taste is smoothness of a brown ale. Very little ’red’ in here besides the color....no red / amber ale edge. Pleasant but not outstanding...smooth.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear, medium amber with a short beige head. The aroma picked up nutty notes and redder fruits, with toasted grain and earthy accents. The flavor found dry pale malts and redder fruits at the core with prickly carbonation, a touch more fruit, and amber malts around.. finished slow due to big carbonation, and it scratched the throat a bit. Medium-ish bodied with heavy carbonation on the palate.. didn’t flow well.. not all that enjoyable.

bytemesis (3495) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber, medium beige head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is cardboard, caramel, grass, lightly nutty. Flavor is medium sweet, very light bitter, caramel and grass, bready, nutty, touch of cardboard. Medium body, high carbonation. A bit acidic. Not bad, but bland.

MaltOne (227) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pours copper brown with thick white head. Aroma is tropical/banana/ bubblegum. Flavor carries some of the aroma profile, on a more classic hop malt frame. Pleasant.

arkurzynski (1583) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Burnt orange-brown pour. Nose has sweet grain/corn aspects of cream ale, with light toasted notes/caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet buttered corn/grain with slightly more pronounced nutty toasted malt. Light body. Lingering toasted grain. While I don’t get the gimmick, this is by no means a bad beer, just fairly lifeless and forgettable.

Enough with the blended beers already. I love the concept of trying New brews, but in this case it just isnt working.
