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.

Fresh, fruity aroma. Typical amber aroma. Reddish, brown body. Thin white head. Clear body. No lace. No visible carbaontion. Basic, roasted malt flavor that is dominated by malt. A little thin, mostly malty with some sweetness. Not bad, but nothing spectacular. Session possibilities.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Tried as part of a beer sampler at the Milwaukee Ale House. Has a mild aroma, that was hard to pick up (even though I was in a private room flargely free of other odors). Has a decent darker red-brown amber body, with a whitish head. Kind of a bitter flavor, it was pretty good. Good body, and decent carbonation. Overall, it’s a pretty good ale, and I would have it again.

Pours a nice amber body with a large head. Nice retention that brings back the froth again and again. Caramel, and fruit in the aroma and flavors of caramel as well. A pretty tastey brew, but a little too malty.

Bottle. Orange amber pour with a small amount of sediment - huge light cream colored head that held shape for several minutes. Mild aroma of sweet caramel. Medium palate. Taste is smooth caramel malt, just a touch of sweetness - very drinkable. Taste isn’t quite as good as it warms, however, very nice representation of the style.

reggiedunlop (3409) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Pours a hazy amber/ruby color with a medium tan head...nice lacing. Aroma is very malty...light fruitiness, doughy, a bit wheaty, and some faint leafy hop notes. Flavor follows suit but is more leafy and less doughy...tastes like mildly hoppy tea...mild toasted malt and a hint of caramel. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and the finish is earthy and mapley...like dry leaves.

dekester1 (338) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2012
Poured a nice red/amber with a light fine heade and lacing that lingered throughout the drink. Aroma was of sweet malts with a slight fruitiness twinge. The taste was of malts with a slight roast hue and moderate hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall, a decent amber lager.

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. ---Rated via iPad

12 oz bottle pours clear amber with a white head. About as low-key as a beer gets. No real flaws. Clean and crisp. Just not a whole lot going on.
