On tap at Milwaukee Ale House. I liked the mellow earthy malt flavors but thought they kind of overpowered the hops. Not what I expected but good nonetheless. Maybe call it maltoberfest?

Amber color with a taller beige head. Rather meaty aroma. Roast beef, light hops and toasted grain scents. Sweet toasted malt start. Caramel, toffee, toasted grain all add to the sweetness. Herbal green hops jump to balance. Distracting verses balancing are the hops. A amber lager with a hop problem. 6/10

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2015 Amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is sweetness first on the tongue, then a malty base. Earthy hop finish. Flavor lasts after the final sip. Malt, hops, yum!

Bottle to cup. Pours a hazy gold amber. Minimal head. Palate is pleasantly thick. Taste is malty and sweet. Slightly bitter finish but not as hoppy as expected.

Hazy amber with a medium sized, off-white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is malty, with lots of toasted bread, and some mellow floral hops. The flavor adds a lot of caramel and some assertive bitterness. It’s ok.

Bottle. Clear orange amber pour with a white head. Smells artificial - caramel and grassy hops. Lagery. Taste is a bit cloying. Not digging this.

Clear thin light brown, no head. Vague artificial sweet. Weedy skunkish hops. Earthiness. Dry light bitter finish. Doesnt seem to come together. Did not enjoy unfortunately..

Very disappointing beer. Was looking for a hoppy, Oktoberfest style beer but this was plain, boring, and just meh. Have been unimpressed so far with MKE Brew Co.
