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.

very sweet and malt rich, carmely almost. could use some more hops for sure. It is a very drinkable beer and I’d recommend it if you’re down on water street. true to the claim of the lable.

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 Re-rate: I liked this one a lot better the second time around. Had a spicier malt scent (didn't notice the smoke this time around). Has a taste pretty representative of other scottish ales I've tried. Only thing that didn't do it for me this time around is the acidic finish. Original rating: This amber colored beer poured with a thick head and smell somewhat smoky. It was lightly hopped, but also had some sourness. Smooth drinking beer, but it just didn't do it for me. 5/3/5/3/10

A pleasant brown ale that is set apart from others of the breed with grassy notes, but otherwise a fairly standard rendering of bready malts and clover hops.

Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a huge tan head. Nose is of malt and caramel. Very thick and creamy on the palate. The taste is of malt, caramel, spices and well balanced dry hopping on the finish. An excellent beer that pairs well with Sheboygan brats and onions.
