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.

Pours amber with a faint head and sweet caramel on the nose. Earthy notes as well help to complement the red ale. Taste is sweet with a bit of bitter notes at the end. medium body with ab it of an oily finish.

Hazy Brown, Huge Soapy Foam Head that Lasts and Leaves Lots Of Thick Lacing. Not Sure why but half of bottle gushes out once you pop a cap open. Has tiny Little Floaters. Faint Malt and Earthy Aroma. Taste About The same: Slightly Sweet Malt, A Little Earthy. Not Too Special Easy Drinker. No Dates, So No Way to Tell How Much Past Its Prime. Wish I Knew Of This Place While I Lived In Milwaukee. Passed it Many Times Without Knowing It is There. Gonna Have to Stop For A Tour Next Time I’m In Town. OK Session Beer.

Can at Bug Club. Sorry, first rule of Bug Club is that you do not talk about Bug Club. Malty nose and malty taste. Slightly bitter finish, but mostly a malt bomb. Some diacetyl butter too, which goes ok with the malt.

Flaske, 355 ml, hjembragt fra Wisconsin af min kone. Helt klar og ravfarvet med et lille off-white skum. Meget maltet. Kiks. Metal. Kobber? Lidt flad og kedelig. Ikke meget humle til at balancere al den malt.

Bottle. It's ok, not great. Pours cloudy brown. Some weird fruit aroma. Not a big fan but I'm sure others might.

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.
