Enjoy this new take on an old favorite. Our slightly-more-hopped amber ale brings unexpected flavor to the classic amber taste. Amber Ales are a common Wisconsin favorite; known for their ’just right’ consistency and flavor. Named for the Cedar-scaped shores on the northern side of Geneva Lake; the view won’t be the only thing that has you coming back for more.

Cloudy copper with white foam. Nice light hoppy aroma with a little malt. Well balanced malt/hop taste. This is a great Amber. Enjoyed it a lot.

A decent amber ale. Slightly sweet and malty with a slight malt hop backbone Pours light orange in color. Had a draft at Geneva ridge hotel.

[Can] Medium shade of amber in color. Not much head or lacing to speak of. Nose is of pine and bready malts. Flavor has a mild vegetal hop kick to it. Otherwise, more caramel, bread and toast notes. Highly carbonated. Almost a soda-like quality to it. Wasn’t great, but not terrible either. Tasting notes from 10/2014.

I loved this Amber Ale from Geneva Lake. It was fresh, buttery, and smooth. Pleasant.

Reddish amber pour. Nose of light citrus and pine hopping with toasted/candied malt hanging in the background. Flavor is toasted malt and citrus hopping. Light nuttiness with lingering hops and caramel/toasted malt. This was quite an enjoyable amber. Much better show than the wheat.

Who watchout! Not your typical Amber. I would have rated this lower if the brewer didn’t warn me ahead of time. What a nice twist on a traditional beer. Plesantly suprised!

Golden-amber, white head, great lacing and head retention. Lemon,floral, grain, and corn aroma. Medium bodied, lemony, tart bitterness that lingers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

backdaft (278) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bomber. Pours a deep amber color. Minimal head and little lacing. Had hopes for this one..... It is slightly more hopped than your average amber but I just cant get past the diacetyl in this one. Maybe its better on tap, IDK.

Ughsmash (7408) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bomber. Poured orangey-amber with very fine sediment in there. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and lesser nutty notes with leafy accents.. lots of sugars going on. The flavor found sweet caramel, molasses, and lesser vanilla with light tanginess around.. finished syrupy sweet and lacking some direction. Medium-bodied and a touch cloying on the palate.. OK drinker.

Tap at Old Fashioned. Amber-tan color, steady off-white head, creamy. Fruity amber malt forward, fruity. Creamy smooth malt body. Nice subtle hop balance. Overall a pretty decent offering, no off flavors. Somewhat toasty. Slightly hazy. Middle of the road.
