COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Falls Hot Tail Ale would be respected on the streets of 19th century England. Maybe. Traditional in all respects. The warm copper color is the result of our use of pale malted barley, with small additions of caramel and biscuit malt. Falls Pale uses lower hopping rates than the American West Coast cousin to the English Pale. The result is what we consider a more widely accepted beverage. Only English hops are acceptable. A creamy tan, long lasting head rests atop. A great brew to drink while watching the Badgers trounce Ohio State. Also great with a burger and fries.

in bottle. amber with a robust off-white head. good retention. acorn/butternut squash aroma. Tastes like a brown ale; lacks hop flavor. medum palate, a bit fizzy, and a bit thin at the end.

Lightly hazed light copper color. Stable thick taupe head that has lots of lace. Sour dough and herbal/weed laden aromas. Some cookie dough in the background. If I didnít know this was from Wisconsin, Iíd would have guessed Denmark. Initial sip helps relieve the fear after the aromas. Dry biscuits and mild herbal jam flavors. Has a mild sour/tart finish that Iím not sure is intended, but in some ways keeps it quite quenching. Interesting brew, in that Iím not sure the sourness is intended, but it work with me. I fear this will increase with age and make the bottle less than palatable. So if you find it now, donít wait for the next UW vs.The OSU game.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Bottle from Rileyís in Madison. Poured a clear bright golden with a light layer of white head (receded to a thin ring after a couple minutes). Aroma of floral hops, brushed metal, and some sorta sweetness. There was an odd sourness about the aroma. Sour on the palate upfront, across the tongue, and at the finish... with some English bitterness at the finish. Caramel and honey sweetness formed a rather residual backbone. Finish of sour light fruits and floral bitterness. I kinda doubt that this held up as intended in the bottle.
