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".

BBB63 (5943) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Bottled: Slightly hazed coppery red hue with small and fading fizzy head and little lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, buttered toast, faint hazelnut, aromatic and wisp of pine hops. The taste starts mildly bitter with a equal dose of background malts. Balanced but none too exciting. Some minor fruit and nut tones hidden mostly. The finish is basic easy bitterness and a dry earthiness. The feel is lively and fizzy. Just your average old American Amber. Pass.

BVery (5935) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy red-amber with a nice thin foamy white head. Smells of malt and some crisp hop. mouthfeel is too carbonated, which masks the little bit of maltiness and nuttiness that might be in there. Just ok.

12oz bottle, shared by alexsdad06. Mostly clear orange / red color. Little white head, some bits and ropes of lace. Caramel malt in the nose, light spicy malt. Little hint of mustiness. Smooth, soft light-medium carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate bitter taster, moderate sweet in the finish.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2009
12 oz bottle from my trip to Wisconsin for GTMW. Pours a hazy orange amber, a but darker brown, a moderate offwhite head that stays at a decent layer, laces ok. Aromas are malty, caramel, toffee, and biscuits take the front. Light floral hopping, largely malt forward. Initial is malty, biscuits and caramel, bread, light bitterness, faint citrus that balances fairly well. Quite drinkable, but a bit sweet on the backend. Finish light bitterness, fairly malty, bread caramel and toffee steal the day with a touch of nuttiness and light hopping. Ok.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Iím really getting to like this brewery, but this is a rather nondescript Amber. Looks nice, a clear copper/amber body with a fluffy off-white head. The faint aroma has some toffee, apples, and butterscotch. (Bad bottle?) Add a light floral/earthy hoppiness to the flavor and you have the whole picture. Iíd only repeat this one to see if my bottle was off.

12 oz. bottle from a six pack that a friend of my wife brought back when they were supposed to be looking for Wisconsin Belgian Red. Oh well, itís a tick. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small disappearing off white head. The aroma and flavor have lighter caramel malt, floral and grassy hops, lightly fruity, slight metallic note.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2007
Pick up a bottle from Trigs in Wausau, Wisconsin. Poured a clear light reddish amber with an ivory cream head. It had some nice lacing as this went down. Nose sensed caramel, toast grains, brown sugar, and nut. Grainy through the mouth with bitterness around the tongue. Flavors of caramel, and some toffee hops. An average red ale

b3shine (5134) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks solid; a semi-transparent orangish brown with white lacing. Smells sweet and malty with light floral notes. Tastes like it smells, sans the floral notes. Average on the palate. Okay.

Pours a dark amber color. Very pretty. The aroma is apricots with a little bit of peanuts. The taste is toast and some caramel. There is a hint of cooked apples. The finish is dry with oak. There is sharp carbonation in the mouth.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2010
Cloudy brownish red, with a thin layer of foam. Faint aroma, but there is little bit of caramel and some piney hops. Nicely full bodied, with a nice mix of caramel and pine. I think Iíve typed the word caramel 3000 times since Iíve been on ratebeer...
