COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bull Falls Five Star Ale is an English golden amber ale with warming red tones. The aroma is slightly fruity with rich malty undertones. Five Star Ale has a wonderful warm flavor, with bitterness on the back of the tongue, which permits a beautiful balanced sweetness, without being cloying. Five Star Ale is pleasant to drink, and is very balanced. In a word, satisfying!

Hazy amber pour from a tallboy can - thanks Skyview! Big malty and caramel nose. Big malty taste. Probably a cheap beer to make without adding hops! Easy to drink. Actually, balancing really well with some home made pickled asparagus.

Just a dude trying to get hammered. Not the kind of marp to hand to a tight bitch at a party. Shit sucks. Almost made me puke after a beer bong. Quality alcohol content doe. Smelt like balls however.

[Tap] Part of a sampler at the brewery. Light amber in color with lively carbonation. Sweet caramel and faint hop nose. Very sweet overall. Caramel and sweet grainy notes aren’t very exciting when that’s all that is there.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at the brewpub. Mostly clear orange/gold pour. Mild nose, caramel taste. Smooth palate, not too bad.

Great beer. I love the Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes. It is the same beer every time.

Draft at OF. This is the kind of punishment you get for being a ticker. This beer sucks. Buttery, sugary malt tones. Medium bodied, totally unexceptional, bland crap. This is a 1.5 beer, anything more than that is generous. You cannot defend this beer. Harsh fruity ale notes. Really horribly brewed. Orange-amber crapaliciousness. Embarrassing.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2011
On tap at Bull Falls. Poured clear honeyed-orange with a short, sticky off-white head. The aroma had a bizarre sweet and sour interplay that I couldn’t place.. smelled off. The flavor found fruity and nutty notes at the core, with dry, kind of metallic sourness and yeasty notes around.. quick finish. Light-medium bodied and tangy on the palate.. odd flow that didn’t work.. something was wrong with this one.

Growler from Trig’s in Wausau. Amber wit a white head. Slightly sweet malty, bready aroma. Light sweetness with a touch of hop bitterness in the finish.

This one wasn’t so great. No perceivable hops on this beer and that is ok for the style. There is some sugar and dry malt, with a sort of grain-like character. Lacks complexity. More thanks to Skyview for this on.

Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Sweet caramel aroma, and sweet body. Copper color with faint head. Smooth body.
