2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I took a tour of the Minhas Craft brewery in Monroe, WI in late Summer 2010. As a parting gift for taking the tour they gave away free bottles of beer and Swiss Amber was one of them.
Swiss Amber pours a dark golden color. It drinks with a heavy taste like a good beer but swallows like cheap beer. Very little after taste. Something new to try but probably not a regular purchase.

Bottle. Dark amber pour. Smells of caramel with bitter notes. The taste is not good. Not sure why i keep giving minhas a chance.

Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth lingering carmel finish.

On tap at Monroe Cheese Festival, Weak in comparison to any amber beers I have had. Probably rated it higher because I liked the polka music the city band was playing. Has the typical minhas flavor- watery and chemicals.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from State Line. Pours dark straw at bottom to medium copper on top into my Stone Levitation tulip glass. The head is off-white and small, going away quickly and staying away. Nose is vienna malt, brown sugar, heavy butyric acid. Tastes somewhat sweet, with notes of vienna malt, nuts, brown sugar, an overall sweetness, and a light palate in density and heft. Not a drain pour, but not great.

Pours an amber color. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is yucky, plastics, cough syrup. Overall a lousy beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear medium-dark orange amber with a rim head and only a few spots of lace. I’d never had a sweet-n-sour beer.....until now. I don’t mean good like Chinese, I mean bad like sweet caramel malt going in, moving to an odd not-beer taste of sour. The flavors are bold, which is a positive. Trouble is, I don’t care for the overall effect.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brown orange pour with a white head. Light aroma of malts and a little caramel. Not as smooth as I expected. Sweet flavor. Pale malts, some caramel, yeast/ bread finish

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel and mild grassy hops. Taste is light caramel malty sweetness with some light fruit and mild grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with little carbonation. Seems to have lower quality ingredients which makes me wonder why they use "Craft" in the name of their brewery.
