COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Pours out a nice brownish hued color with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is very nice with a good melody of hops, caramel and slight cream flavor, very nice beer

Pours a beautiful clear amber with a very nice head; under the smoky circumstances, the aroma is limited.

The flavor is deeply fruity, orange, lemon, and a sweet caramel that some avoids being cloying. A pleasent amount of well-rounded hops balance out a nicely toasted malt profile; the beer offers a gentle but sufficiently dry finish and the mouthfeel is spot-on for a session amber. This is a very nice (if not overly challenging) beer. Iím impressed!

I think this one may have been sitting around a while, itís a batch 7027. Nice amber color with a good deal of sediment. Creamy white head. I donít have all that much to say about it other than, I could drink a lot of this, but itís probably a little too sweet for my tastes.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Bottle, Batch 7064. Poured a medium orangey-amber with a short, creamy white head. There was a good deal of sediment floating around in there. Sweet, malty arouma of primarily caramel maltage, with a nice dose of floral hops. Smooth caramel and noble hops were well-balanced in the flavor, with some subtle spice at the finish. Smooth on the palate with hoppy bitterness around the edges. This was definitely a tasty and well-crafted amber.

Do they make a bad beer? Tried this the other night for the first time in a while, and I can say is that I need to get a case of this next trip to the store. Hazy orange with some nice frothy off white head. Nose is rich malt and yeast, light light floral hops as well. Taste is a rich malt backbone, semisweet, with a nice yeast and hop note.Nice body. Proof that a beer doesnt need to be overloaded and big to be tasty.

This brown ale is fantastic for a moderately priced pick-up. Almost no beers that can be commonly found in the grocery store (in Michigan) can be compared, and it is a great beer to introduce to non-beer lovers.

The color is a deep rust red that darkens toward the top. Nose is sweet with fruit accents of apple and pear that gives way to a nice caramel finish. The medium-bodied ale has a sweet flavor that manages to be remarkably smooth and rich. A very good amber that brings depth to an often one-note style.

12oz - Packaged on June 23, 2005 - Aroma is malty, carmel and a touch of hops. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium head and great lasting lacing. The best looking amber Iíve seen. Flavor is subtle hop followed by a smooth carmel malt back. Palate is smooth and clean. Always been one of my favorite session brews and always will be.
