COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 Mildly hazy deep amber with a thin tan head that meets its demise fairly quickly. Aroma of heavy caramel, fruit and lightly toasted malt. Flavor is heavy on the caramel with dark fruits and not much in terms of hops though a mild bitterness does come through on the finish. A bit oily and grainy and dry on the finish.

(02-15-08 = 8-4-7-3-13)Draught at the Gasthaus. Nice dark amber color with pleasant aroma. Nothing good or bad about palate. Beer had nice flavor and I enjoyed this beer and would try it again.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2012
Originally reviewed: 10/22/09. Poured into my pint glass. Pours a slightly murky copper color with a thin off-white head on top. Dissipates quickly leaving little lace in its wake. Smells of toffee, the woods, and big fresh sourdough bread. The body is full and hearty. Nice mellow crispness to this due to a moderate amount of carbonation. Very mellow bready flavor with a touch of honey on the finish. Bitterness is low on this one. Slight sweet quality to it. I really like the aftertaste. Like I just ate some fresh-buttered dark bread. With the low ABV, I could drink a few of these. Good beer.
