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

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.

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.

pkbites (857) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2009
The perfect looking beer. Dark copper/reddish with a thick, creamy beige head that lasts with some good lacing. Aroma is sweet. Too sweet actually. Flavor is lightly of malt and caramel. Some faint bitter hops in the background and in the aftertaste, but nowhere near enough. This is good, but it has a watered down finish that disappoints. Label on bottle and the story on the carton are interesting. But this is not worth the $8 they get for a six-pack.

Nice complex malty flavors. Pours rich and creamy, yet not too filling. Bright hoppy, brilliant finish. Very good beer.

Slightly hazy, reddish amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of sweet and slightly spicy malt. Flavors of nutty caramel and grain with a bit of a spicy tingle. Creamy palate with a nice tingle of carbonation and and long smooth, slightly hoppy finish

Bottle thanks to hopdog. Pours a lightly hazy deep amber with golden highlights and a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, some nuts, cardboard and dark fruits. Flavor of caramel, sweet grainy malts, toffee, cardboard and a touch of citrus.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Draft at the Lakefront Marathon. Pour is a deep amber with some iced tea notes in the nose. A little hop character. Very drinkable amber with a creamy mouthfeel and some light hoppiness and again the iced tea. Decent.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Pours an amber color with a medium foamy white head. Caramel aroma, with a bit of citrus. Taste is about the same......rather malty, with some pineyness to it. Nothing very special.

I’m not a huge fan of this beer: it’s a little darker for an amber and is a little too malty. I can see why others like it though: it has a somewhat fruity aroma and is a strong beer although relatively smooth
