COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber ale with exceptional balance and smoothness. Brewed with a blend of specialty malts. Balanced by a choice blended of hops. True story... 1886 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, great uncle Louie was cracked over the head with a beer glass and killed. Louie’s story is one of many Wisconsin tavern legends that gives life and color to our heritage. Drink one for uncle Louie and remember: today’s barroom story might just be tomorrow’s legend.

Nothing wrong with it other than being boring. great color, decent nose to it. but very boring taste, one of those "just another beer" tastes. never will buy it ever, would be a better deal just to get a miller at the bar and get about the same amount of pleasure from it without spending 5 bucks a pint.

Pours amber with a faint head and sweet caramel on the nose. Earthy notes as well help to complement the red ale. Taste is sweet with a bit of bitter notes at the end. medium body with ab it of an oily finish.

Pours a rich amber color with a nice creamy head. It has very bold hop taste with roasted malt flavor. It has a strong finish.

Louie’s Demise pours a cloudy and dark amber color as the scent of roasted malts erupt from the bottle. It is rather thin in texture but has a rather bold taste of malts with a nice mixture of hops. A very interesting brew!

12 oz bottle exploded into huge overflowing off-white head. Once I wiped it up and things settled, the color was cloudy amber. Aroma has considerable nuts and spices. Body is light to medium with average carbonation. Taste is slightly spicy, slightly bitter without much of a finish. OK beer, but I’d like to try one that doesn’t erupt.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 An exceptional beer. I usually find Amber Ales a bit bland/boring but this is so flavorful and pretty well balanced. Leans to the sweet side. Bit of bitter. extremely delicious. Pretty original.

dark amber. lightly bitter aftertaste, but barely noticeable. Lively taste, hard for me to pick out anything particular, just a good tasting beer. Possible slight wheat, woody taste, though I may just be grabbing at branches trying to come up with it’s flavor is. Nothing particularly awesome, just a good quality, yet somewhat average beer.

Pretty good for an amber, (not usually my go to).. Pours cloudy brown.. Some weird fruit aroma.. Taste is sugar, eggplant, and who knows, but its diffrent and pretty good in my book..kinda suprised i liked it, not a huge amber fan

Pretty tame for an amber ale, with none of the bite that can come with the genre. Good lookin’ on the pour with a nice aroma that’s more caramel than spruce, although they’re both there. Somewhat thin on the body, and a taste that’s a little sweet and a little bitter. Solid offering from another little guy bringing good brewing back to Beertown.
