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.

Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a huge tan head. Nose is of malt and caramel. Very thick and creamy on the palate. The taste is of malt, caramel, spices and well balanced dry hopping on the finish. An excellent beer that pairs well with Sheboygan brats and onions.

12 oz bottle. It pours a hazy reddish brown with a thick, foamy slightly off-white head. The nose is pretty simple, some raisiny fruits, caramel, and perhaps some alcohol. The flavor doesn’t go to far, there is a thick walnuttines and caramel flavor, also some alcoholic twang. It is okay, but nothing exciting really.

12 oz. Bottle. Poured an amberish color with a medium to light head. Classic malty amber. Decent brew but nothing crazy.

bottle fresh from wisconsin 7/12/10. awesome creepy label. dark coppery pour with a white topper. it smells of malty caramel, orange, light spice and juniper-like pine. the flavor is much the same... not as sweet as i expected but certainly very malty. medium body with a little thick/richness to it. slick, smooth and warming. idk if i want that from an amber?? 6/3/5/3/13/3.0

Amber orange pour with a white head. Aroma is caramel, pennies, some boiled greens hop notes? Flavor is predominantly caramel, some sweet malt. Not much hop character. A little metallic. Ok.

aroma is nutty with beginnings of real toffee character. appearance is polished but darkened center on pretty ruby body with great lacing/carb. oil slick head shifts and flows. flavor is tangy, rubbery (but pleasant) caramel, more nuttiness from aroma steps near dopplebock territory. substantial chewy mouthfeel echoes the caramel within.

Pours bubbly, frothy white head with deep copper body. Decent caramel aroma with a little skunky hop. Flavor is mostly sweet, caramel malt with light dry hop aftertaste. Some plastic. Medium body. Okay stuff.
