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.

Nice looking beer and a nice drinking one, too. Plenty of malt in the flavor and surprisingly dry effects. I would buy this one again.

This ale pors deep amber and gives off nice notes of the sweet malt. The beer is quite smooth with notes of molasses and roasted nuts. It finished quite smooth.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2007
Good looking beer. The body’s a deep amber with ruby highlights and it sports a thick & creamy khaki head. The aroma contains fruity, juicy malts with some fresh toast. Caramel and more fruits are present in the flavor along with a mild spiciness. A touch of earthy bitterness mellows the drink out, making it a decent, sessionable ale.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2007
Smells of nut and caramel malts. Pours a dark red, almost brown. It has a nice roasty malt flavor and goes down with a bready finish. This is a good session beer for me.

Ughsmash (7128) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2007
On tap at the Ale House. Poured a deeper reddish-amber with a dusting and a ring of off-white head. Nose was of sweet toasted caramel and some darker fruits.. odd hint of whiskey sugars.. pleasant. Flavor also picked up the toasted caramel and darker fruits along with a moderate leafy bitterness and some grainy woody notes... only a decent flow. Somewhat smooth on the palate with decently-placed bitterness.. OK, but far from memorable.

This is my Lawn mower beer. Pours a amber/red with with a minimal head. Smells of nuts, toffee, butter, and slight hops. Taste is easy going malt, with a little toast, hints of hops, and no metallic aftertaste (thank god). All in all this is pound for pound my favorite lawnmower beer, and at 6.99 a 6 er it’s a great deal.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Nice frothy head at first with a deep amber and reddish hue. Aroma of toffee and some nutmeg. Deeper exploration upon the palate reveals a lack of complexity. A little biscuit and dried fruit. Slight bittering character, but again fails to be anything more than mediocre.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear copper color with thin white head that left a little lace. Smelled of dried cherry and a touch of sprucy hops. Tasted of dried fruit and biscuity malt. Dry and slightly bitter on the tongue with medium body.

Sample @ Brewery. Medium sweet malt aroma. Red body with no head. Had a juicy burst of bubblegum. Like the gum with the gel in the middle. Good beer.
