A good start for this 16 month old beewing company I thought. The red ale was pretty solid ans was pretty traditional to the good beers Iíve had in Wisconsin

pepsican (1419) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Amber pour with a small off white head. Toffee and caramel all over this one with just a touch of earthy hop bitterness. Clean for what it was, but amber ales arenít really my thing.

Nice red beer with a very strong hop presence in the nose and on the palate.

On tap at Vintage 9/29, pours a clear dark amber red with a thin head, aroma is of light malt and a hint of hops, flavor has a slight hop front and a malty finish, mouthfeel much lighter than I was expecting, just ok

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2012
On tap at Sweet Mullets brewpub. Cloudy amber with a medium frothy tan head. Aroma is down the middle with some floral and citrus notes to go with sweeter malts. Taste is floral and citrusy with grains, caramel and a touch of woodsy hops. A bit too sudsy with mild bitterness.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2012
On draught at the Sweet Mullets brewery in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear amber colored brew with a a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma has both fruity and grassy hops, caramel and Munich style malts, with a touch of spice. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of roasted caramel malt, a hint of grassy hops and some crisp roasted nut skin. Finish is semi-dry with a sharp mild bitterness that quickly replaced with roasted caramel malt. Most amber ales Iíve tried that uses Willamette hops have been too medicinal for my liking. Not this one. Brewmaster did an excellent job balancing out the flavors.

deyholla (5958) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 5, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a bit of a grassy note but is mainly sweet grain with a hint of butterscotch. Flavor is similar with sweet grains throughout with a bit of butterscotch and a hint of grass underlying.
