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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-amber color with a lots of minuscule floaters and a medium sized creamy orange-tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was malty caramel, dark fruits and bread. The flavor was sweet and malty bread, caramel and faint vague fruits. Medium length sweet malty bread and fruit finish. Medium body and smooth. Pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours lightly hazy amber with a one finger head. There’s a moderate caramel malt aroma. The flavor is mostly malts and unfortunately is rather lacking. The mouthfeel is on the thin side. There’s some hops in the finish, but not much. As others have noted, it’s really not much better than a macro lager

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
