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!

Draught pint at City Grill in Wausau, WI. Pours medium to dark amber with just a bit of foam...fairly uninteresting malty-biscuit aroma, bit of caramel, not a lot going on...is this an amber ale? I wasn’t looking it up here while I was drinking it, and there was no description on the menu, seems amber-ale to me, little hop presence, biscuit malts, unfortunately a bit of cardboard character towards the finish...ehh, I really can’t come up with much here. Drinkable, not that much wrong besides that cardboard (which mostly disappeared as it warmed) , but nothing much to take home either.

madvike (3201) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Can - Amber pour with foamy light tan head. Nose is grassy, herbal hopping with sweet caramel malt. Bready as hell. Tastes similar, with some orange marmalade notes, a little spiciness, and a burnt bitterness on the finish. Super malty, but sharp where I’d like it to be smooth and way too sweet. Smooth body, but so not my thing.

Pours a golden hue with a moderate head. The taste has a touch of bitterness to it but overall is pretty decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lemke10 (969) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2015
This pours a clear, dark amber color with a slight beige head. The aroma is malty with a touch of citrus. The taste is smooth and easy drinking. It has a well-balanced flavor and taste. I thought it was a lot better than the rating would suggest.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Amber to orange in color. Fluffy beige head. Pale malt, biscuit, and herbal hops aromas. Hints of butter. Flavors are all over the place. Caramel, butter, tin, earth, buckwheat honey, herbal bitterness. Long bitter linger. Interesting at time, unpleasant at others.

Pour out of 16 oz can, hazy dark orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big caramel, butter, bread into some veggie, hints of grain, slight earthy notes. Taste was sweet vanilla, earth, caramel, butter, veggie, hints of grain, finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet. Bleh.

Can pours a clear Amber with a medium khaki head. Caramel and toffee malt aroma. Taste similar to aroma with some bitter hop spice working against the sweetness of the malt. Boring.
