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.

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 Milwaukee Ale House. Clean amber pour. Clean flavors. Malty with a creamy body. Nice.

Pours a nice amber color with off-white head. Caramel malt, roasted malt, and some pine notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with nice caramel malt note.

Not much to speak of here. Hints of this, light amounts of that. Where’s the flavor? Session ale is one thing, but let’s not lose the flavor. Dangerously close to macro water beer territory.

Bottle at MoJos in Elkhorn...cloudy amber; moderate head....mild nose with slightly bitter taste...went well with the ribs; would be disappointing as a stand alone brew....just OK. ---Rated via iPad

Apple juice colored pour, not much head. Flavor of old apple juice, rotted apples, caramel. Might be MY demise.

Amber colored. Aroma of grain and malt. A nice malty, bready amber. Not too sweet not too bitter. Drinkable a god stand by. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is citrus. Pours picture perfect - medium head that rises just over rim of pint glass. Taste is slightly bitter with hints of brown sugar and caramel.
