Our flagship brand; this medium bodied amber ale starts with a rich malt flourish thatís kept in perfect balance by a smooth hop finish. This MKE original is similar to a German style alt beer.

arkurzynski (1886) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2010
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.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Draft at Greenbush Bar. Pours a rich ruby-amber color with a finger-thick off-white head, very creamy. Aroma of sweet malts, apples, cherries, toast, and hops. Flavor is malty, fruity, and sweet, with notes of caramel, mixed fruit juice, and just a bit of earthy hops. Light-bodied, with average carbonation and a mouthfeel that borders on malty and juicy. Finishes crisp and clean. Definitely sessionable. Easy-to-drink, straightforward beer with a cool story to the name.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2011 A very sharp beer, like a clean cut. A bit heavy, meaning a few of these may weight you down over the period of a night. Second rating, and I do not enjoy this. Lowering the taste, palate, and overall ratings.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Picked up a bottle of this at Ridgeview. Pours a rich amber color with lots of particulate floating about and thin white head. Aroma is of caramel, light fruit and mild hops. Taste is of sweet caramel malt, light fruit, mild citrus hops and light brown sugar. Surprisingly, this isnít at all bad for a style that I generally donít care for. Good job on this one.

SHANER4 (487) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Bottle 12oz. - Poured dark very cloudy amber color with foamy beige head, also alot of small chunks floating around suspended in beer!! Aroma - Smelled of caramel malt, overly ripe apples and cider. Flavor - Alot of toasted malt, caramel malt taste. Also had mild cider flavor that I liked. Reminded me of a apple jolly rancher with nice bitter finish. Palate - Medium bodied with somewhat creamy texture. Carbonation is lively and finish is bitter and short. Overall - Surprised that I liked this beer. I would buy again, itís cheap and has nice flavor!!

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Clear medium amber, kicking up billows of of a yellowish beige head. Nice lace. Malt based aroma, some malt syrup with a bit of smoke. Flavors caramel, a bit of cider. Just enough hops bitters to make it not-exactly sweet. Basic clean session ale, non-complex, but nothing is off. Medium body.

nuplastikk (5268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Draft at OF. Amber-brown color, thick off white head. Slight to full on Amber malt pungency. Spicy malt aftertaste with a touch of cream. Full of flavor. Medium to full bodied. Rather well done, pretty solid balance between the rich malt and soapy hop crispness. A quality beer, worth a try.

JK (5331) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Lots of grain in the aroma and flavor. Mildly bitter, but less so from hops than from dry malt, and there are almost no hops in this beer. Full palate for the style, with a light nut flavor. One of the best amber ales to be found anywhere, but like brown ale, there is only so much that can be done with this rather boring style.

drywallman (351) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2009
This one poured a dark copper with a short lived head. The aroma was sloghtly sweet with a lightly carmelly or molasses like taste. Hops were faint, but balanced. These would be good session brews.
