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".

Reviewed from notes. Poured into a pint glass. Appearance is amber with a sligt off white head. Nose brings light pine and floral hops with some biscuit malt. Taste is mostly malt with a tad bit of earthy bread. Light to medium feel. Drinkability is pretty good, but this is pretty tame overall. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-04-2010

12oz. Bottle: Light aroma of malt, slight caramel, herbs, grain, and hay. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Many tiny particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, light caramel, and grain. Medium body. Slick then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, light caramel, and grain finish is dry.

kramer (4895) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a minimal fizzy white head. The nose is toasty and slightly grainy malts with a little iced tea and some light floral hops. The flavor is mostly husky crystal malt with some moderate bitterness. Finishes with a little caramel sweetness, toasted malt, and a lingering dusty graininess. Slightly sticky and clingy with moderate fizzy carbonation. A pretty forgetable beer. Meh.

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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 24, 2006
12 oz bottle from the Woodmans on Gammon Road, Madison WI (October 2006) consumed mid-November from a Chouffe tulip glass. Thick, stable creamy-frothy off-white head tops the ruddy red-bronze body which bubbles away nicely for a while....touch buttery in the nose though some nice rough woody-twiggy hops manage to struggle through; with warmth the nose seems to fade to almost nothingness though a hint of diacetyl remains.....cherry-apple fruitiness in the body ebbs to a serious dryness and burnt-bitter roastiness....on the whole this is very dry and boring with almost no real flavor, with rough carbonation and bland soda-wateriness making this another major disappointment from this once well-regarded (by me anyway) brewery.

A decent session beer. Lightly roasted malt and grain. Very light hops. Nice amber color and some sediment. Nothing exciting, a little nut flavor, and very drinkable.
