COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth amber ale with it's mellow nutty flavor, subtle flowery nose, and delightful malty finish should appeal even to the newest of specialty beer drinkers.Named for the Algonquin word for the Wisconsin River, Ouisconsing Red makes even our neighbors to the south and west "want to be a Badger".

Tried this beer in a sample pack on my way through WI. It produced a soapy beige head on a clear red-brown body. Malts and a touch of herbal hops in the nose. Fruit malts in the flavor with herbal bitter piney notes. Touch of chocolate in the taste was unexpected and not welcome in a scotch ale. Strange metallic taste as well. Might have been a bad bottle.

HighWine (954) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle to pilsner glass at a hotel. Copper color pour, foamy white head with decent lace. Sweet. Read malt and hop fragrance. Taste is burnt caramel and resinous hops. More flavor than I expected. Quite quenching. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours amber with about a finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and light floral hops. Taste is light bitter. Floral and pine hops with a little caramel. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I would drink this one again.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Clear orange amber color. One fingers of frothy white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.0 S: Grainy malts with a light toastiness and a touch of earthy hoppiness. Otherwise, clean without a lot going on. 3.5 T: Like the nose, this is grainy and toasty. A bigger hop presence is found though. Earthy flavor with a moderate bitterness. 3.0 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Upper end of what I want the carbonation to be, but the bigger problem is that itís a bit bity. Otherwise okay. 3.0 D: Solidly average brew. Thatís about all there is to say. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-11-2012 19:45:45

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2012
On draught at Local Option. Reddish-amber pour with a medium off-white head that diminishes slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of caramel malt and hops. Light body with flavors of mild floral hops, butterscotch and malt. The finish is short and sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Caramel dominates the aroma and a mild sweetness from the malts carries through the taste, although it does tussle a bit with bitter hops. A nice-looking beverage that loses its head soon after the pour. Itís in the middle of the Central Waters pack.

tmoreau (2570) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2012
On tap at the Argus in Madison, WI., and dispensed to a shaker showing a hazed, brownish amber, off white, creamy head foam, and a nicely clingy, sprayed appearance to the lacing. The aroma was mainly mid-fruit as apricot or peach, some light sweetness, and smooth malt. The flavor added medium, earthy, but not overbearing hop bitterness and a light wisp of soapiness. Decently carbonated and basically sessionable.
