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".

I picked up this 12 oz. bottle with some others when my wife and I went on a 6 day road trip to Madison, WI for the Great Taste of the Midwest in ’07. The beer pours a slightly cloudy dark red with an off white head and silky lacing. The nose not only hops and malt but also n some off-putting sour notes. The beer taste good. But it could taste a lot better. I can tell it had good hop and malt balance but the sourness from the aroma is there in the flavor as well. I did hang on to it to long but you would think a red ale that is well hopped beer like this one would up more than 5 months (most the time under refrigeration). I had a similar problem with another CW beer. Short shelf life could mean there were (or are) some issue at the brewery. I will try it again next time I find some.

pours a rich red amber with a medium tan head. aroma is malt and bread. A nice taste. some spice, some nut, and a hint of bitterness on the finish. Another nice number from Central Waters. Good beer!

Pours a clear reddish medium amber. Small to medium frothy creamy tight white head. A blend of sweet caramel malty and earthy hops. A hint of fruity. Medium body. Smooth and creamy. Maybe a little sticky. Mild earthy bitterness and moderate dryness. Toasty. Minerals. Pretty good.

pkbites (643) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Tap. Nice red color. Toasted malt, caramel backdrop. Nice mouthfeel. Not too hoppy but enough. A good "food beer". Better at room temp than ice cold.

Hazy orange pour with very minimal if non existent head. Aroma is not too strong with hints of malt and caramel but not too much else. Taste is balanced though with a moderate sweetness throughout and a piney finish. Decent beer but I have had better from Central Waters

very pretty looking. Nice bright red. Interesting in the light. taste is subtle. after taste is alright. I like the graphic design. Maybe its just the heron that gets me. what an elegant bird! The bird is growing on me with each sip.

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
