Our flagship brand; this medium bodied amber ale starts with a rich malt flourish that’s kept in perfect balance by a smooth hop finish. This MKE original is similar to a German style alt beer.

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.

Amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is malty. Taste is roasted malt, a little creamy, some nuttiness. OK beer

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.

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.

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.

jsquire (3863) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2004
On tap at the brewpub. Red amber out of the tap with almost no head. Sweet beer with an almost white sugar taste. It is billed as a "Scotch" ale, but I’m glad that RB has it as an amber. Nothing wrong with it but not much going on.

Miller Park - Brewer-Twins game, MIlwaukee, WI - 12 oz bottle. Light copper pour, decent, creamy off-white head. Not much aroma - a bit of fresh lake water. Some caramel notes. Decent balance of hops and malt. Clean mouthfeel. Average.

This beer pours to a thin tan head atop a dark brown body. The aroma is much like the Maker’s Demise w/o the oak. The flavor is iced tea and light Noble hops. The palate is creamy and medium bodied. Not bad, but nothing special.

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.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2010
bottle fresh from wisconsin 7/12/10. awesome creepy label. dark coppery pour with a white topper. it smells of malty caramel, orange, light spice and juniper-like pine. the flavor is much the same... not as sweet as i expected but certainly very malty. medium body with a little thick/richness to it. slick, smooth and warming. idk if i want that from an amber?? 6/3/5/3/13/3.0
