jmohno (1458) - Iowa, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Cloudy dark orange(un-red.)Short head leaving a thin ring. Some bread and burt carmel aroma,slight wood.Some citrus.Dry alcohol. Taste is crisp, tangish, citrus hops/bitter.Some smooth slickness with carmel notes,some yeast,dryness,dry finish.Long bitter dry grassywith grapefruit.Carmel/vanilla taste. Lacking some roastyness I like in ambers. Seems like they were trying to make a hoppy red ale. The more I drink it and warms the more I dont like it. This may be too dry,like they threw in a bunch of sugar to make it. Drinkability seems good,but also alcoholy too.Not too great. Pretty shure it has oxidation also, just like the black ipa.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburs Foco a while back. Clear, burnt orange appearance with a light brown head. Mild diacetyl, toasty, mild caramel malty, somewhat piney/herbal hoppy aroma. Yikes- notes of diacetyl and DMS - cooked veggies, butter- along with toasted malts and earthy, slightly piney hoppy flavor. Not good at all.

On tap at Mundelin beer fest. Pours a clear deep amber with a yellowish brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains with a hint of light grains. Flavor is sweet grains with backing sweet bread with not too much hoppiness.

Aroma is mild sweetness and earthiness. The flavor is caramel malts, a mild nuttiness and an off property in the palate.

arkurzynski (2142) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2012
On tap at the Barley Pop. Deep amber color with off-white head. Light toasted malt and caramel with faint generic hops. Flavor is initially light caramel which quickly fades to a moderate, dry, pine hop bitterness. Catching some off-buttery flavors in the beginning and a bit of plastic at the end. Overall, okay for a generic amber.

Skyview (5453) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Sampled on draught at the 2010 Wisconsin Craft Beer Festival in Chilton, WI as Sprecher Chilton Choice. Pours a semi-clear copper colored brew with a thick off-white that leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma of Munich malt, some floral hops and a hint of tropical fruit. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of caramel and Munich malts, floral hops and a hint of spice. Finish is semi-dry with a mild bitterness that slowly disappears.

pkbites (836) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2010
On tap at 3 cellars. Reddish/copper pour with off-white head that dies quickly. No lacing on the glass. Malt & floral aroma with something else i can’t place (bubble gum? Cantaloupe? Jelly beans?). Sweet with a hint of hops. A bit of a watery finish. Good, not great. Definitely worth trying though.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2010
On tap at Sprecher. Poured crystal-clear coppery-amber with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma was on the sweeter side with toasted redder fruits and caramel leading.. touches of honey and vanilla accented.. sugary-sweet, but for the most part enjoyable. The flavor was sweet as well, again with the caramel and fruity notes.. peppery alcohol and crisp floral bitterness laced throughout.. prickly carbonation and spicy hops on the finish.. decent balance. Medium-bodied with lower-than-expected carbonation on the palate.. this tried to have a crisp feel, but the sweetness stuck in a few places.. OK flow.
