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.

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.

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.

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.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2007
On tap at the Ale House. Poured a deeper reddish-amber with a dusting and a ring of off-white head. Nose was of sweet toasted caramel and some darker fruits.. odd hint of whiskey sugars.. pleasant. Flavor also picked up the toasted caramel and darker fruits along with a moderate leafy bitterness and some grainy woody notes... only a decent flow. Somewhat smooth on the palate with decently-placed bitterness.. OK, but far from memorable.

Draft at the Lakefront Marathon. Pour is a deep amber with some iced tea notes in the nose. A little hop character. Very drinkable amber with a creamy mouthfeel and some light hoppiness and again the iced tea. Decent.
