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.

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.

I like parts of this beer, but not the whole. Great looking beer with nice deep color and fluffy head. But wow there are some weird funky, stale hop notes interplaying with some fairly sweet carmely sweetness-- on top of the roasty smokey malt backbone one expects from this category. Would like to try it fresh / on tap, as this just doesn’t taste right to me out of the can.

Pours a nice amber body with a large head. Nice retention that brings back the froth again and again. Caramel, and fruit in the aroma and flavors of caramel as well. A pretty tastey brew, but a little too malty for an amber ale.

Smooth beer. In between their pale ale and IPA. Light-medium body with a hop foundation but nothing strong.

A full bodied malty amber beer with some nice hops to balance (piney hops). There is another flavor there that almost is a hint of peat? Serving: Bottle

On tap at the brewery. Golden pour. Malty aroma. A little sweet with a slight bitter finish. Ok beer but did not stand out from the other MBC beers during our tastings.

Aroma is a mix of caramel malts and fruit. The flavor is fruit, slightly sweet malts and a mildly tart finish.

American ambers tend to either be slightly darker versions of APA or beers that try to pass off lack of hops as maltiness. This is neither of those; it is a legitimately big and malt beer--and I like it. Nose is mile, just a touch fruity but a hint of earth. It’s a bit on the sweetside but that sweetness is expressed in the form of intense, almost exaggerated maltiness. The carbonation is perhaps a touch too strong for its full and slightly sticky texture but that is a small complaint. This is a nice change of pace from typical American offerings.
