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".

Draft at Greenbush Bar. Pours a dark amber-brown color with reddish tints and a fairly thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, floral hops, biscuit, and a faint bit of citrus. Flavor follows suit mostly, with notes of caramel malts early and then floral hops, nuts, citrus, toast, and sugar. Sweet and malty. Light-bodied, with average carbonation and a sweet finish. Simple and sessionable.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Pours clear copper with thin white head. The aroma is mildly malty sweet with a touch of earthiness and spicy hops. The taste starts with a mild roasted malt astringent note and hop bite then very quickly becomes more rich with malt sweetness and some pretty solid nuttiness. It ends some lingering earthy to spicy hop notes and some refreshing dryness.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Bottle. Poured a clear medium orange with a light layer of beige head... had some nice lacing as this went down. Nose picked up smooth caramel, earth, toasty grains, bread, and pine... became rather sticky and a little remniscent of pine resin as it wamed up. Lighter-bodied. Smooth through the mouth with bitterness around the tongue and a rather sticky finish. Flavors of toasted earth, caramel, and some floral hoppage. Nothing extraordinary about this one, but it was smooth, tasty, and very easy-drinking.

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.

b3shine (6761) - Indiana, 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.

BBB63 (6474) - 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.

TheAlum (6373) - Aurora, 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.

Pailhead (5746) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Bottle: Strong aroma of caramel and light hops. Pours a dark, slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head. Nice lacing. LIght malty initial flavor with a moderate caramel and light hop finish. Not bad and definitely better than an average of 2.82.

Suttree (5591) - 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...

Cornfield (5570) - 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.
