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.

12 oz bottle exploded into huge overflowing off-white head. Once I wiped it up and things settled, the color was cloudy amber. Aroma has considerable nuts and spices. Body is light to medium with average carbonation. Taste is slightly spicy, slightly bitter without much of a finish. OK beer, but I’d like to try one that doesn’t erupt.

Bottle pours a red amber with a small head. The aroma is malty. The flavor is malty sweet, with a hint of ale sour fruit lingering. The palate is good and rich. Overall, pretty average.

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.

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.

On tap at the brewery. Golden pour. Malty aroma. A little sweet with a slight bitter finish. Ok beer but did not stand out from the other MBC beers during our tastings.

Louie’s Demise pours a cloudy and dark amber color as the scent of roasted malts erupt from the bottle. It is rather thin in texture but has a rather bold taste of malts with a nice mixture of hops. A very interesting brew!

Looks a lot like a red beer. Remninds me a lot of McEwan's with a little bite to it. Not a real strong flavor, but I like the bottle, so it gets bonus points for that.

Single from Three Cellars Milwaukee. Good darker Amber full body and great color.

pkbites (693) - 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.

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.
