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".

Clear, dark amber with off-white head. Light hops in the aroma, but not much else. A nice sweet flavor with decent bitterness at the end.

Pours clear copper color, with off-white head. Slight floral aroma. Bitter at first, with malty, burnt finish. Mouthfeel is dry. Not brilliant, but pretty good.

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. It’s in the middle of the Central Waters pack.

A pretty decent but generic amber ale. Less hoppy than other amber ales I can remember. Nice smooth malt flavors (pretzels were immediately noticed) with a soft yeasty aroma. Not memorable in my opinion, but well-balanced and drinkable.

Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Sampler flight at the brewery. Closer in flavor and color to an Amber than a Red. Thin-ish head, malty and hoppy nose, flavor of thick caramel malts with a hint of alcohol on the finish.

Bottle, poured into pint glass A earthy hoppiness A red orange, quite clear nice small tan head T strong piney resinous bitterness, not really balanced by anything sort of watery P thin bodied with a slight oiliness O not the best red in the world, lacking in complexity ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

backdaft (232) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a foamy tan head. Aromas of floral hops and malt. Slightly sweet nutty malt flavor balanced well with hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied. Nothing too special; but alot better than some other ambers out there.

Had this on tap at Hilltop. Very good. Central Waters is an exceptional little brewery. This read was in apperance ideal, adn the taste was an excellent malty excursion.

Not as bad as what I see for the site rating. Nice deep copper color. Aroma has a good balance between lite hop and sweet malt. Taste is flavorful, but the body come across as watery and finishes that way as well. Guessing that’s what leaves so many with a bad taste in their mouth- pun intended.
