I found this beer to be very enjoyable. You can taste the hops used in brewing yet there is no bitter aftertaste. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who likes red ales

I like the beer, but couldn’t drink more than a few in one sitting. a crisp, rich, creamy feel in the lips.

Pours a reddish copper with a fairly thin tan head. Nose is of malt and yeast. Nice texture- fairly creamy on the palate. Malt taste is most pronounced on the front with a doughy bread flavor in the middle and a hint of hops on the finish. Overall, a very good beer. Try it with burgers, brats or hot dogs off the grill.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2010
On draught at the Sprecher Brewing Company north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear copper colored brew with a thick off-white that leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some floral and dry hops a hint of tropical fruit, and some Brazilian nuts. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of caramel and biscuit malt, floral hops and a hint of spice. Finish is slightly dry with a mild bitterness that quickly disappears. Somewhat close to the Sprecher Red Ale with a more dry bittern finish.

Malty, possibly a little fruity. Taste is similar moderate body, very drinkable. Something about it reminds me of hanging out on the porch in the summer time, I don’t know why

When I was growing up in West Bend, Wisconsin in the 60’s Lithia had a brewery on N. Main Street. It always smelled funny walking past it. And I never knew anyone who drank their beer (Lithia and West Bend Old Timers). The folks who had it said it sucked. The brewery closed circa 1972 and the Walters brewing company bought the brand. THIS isn’t bad. Lovely copper pour with a rich head. Nice floral/bakery/caramel nose. But a bit of metallic whiff in the nose is detected. This has a helluva lot more hops than any other red brew I’ve ever had. And, by the way, this is NOT made in West Bend. It’s made in Glendale by Sprecher. Good, but at $8.99 for a 6 pack this is wayyyyy over priced.

12 oz. bottle. Deep coppery red color with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, sweet toffee and a bit of piney hops. Creamy palate with flavors of herbal hops, molasses and lightly roasted malt. The finish is long and nicely bitter. I actually enjoyed this one more than I thought I would.

Pours an almost clear caramely amber. Good medium to large frothy lasting tan head with good lacing. Aroma is light sweet and semi dry, malty, caramel, minerals. Touch of fruitiness. Flavor follows. Easy drinking. Crisp. Solid medium plus body. Mildly bitter with mid dryness through a quick finish. A basic, solid beer. Honestly, much better than I expected.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2011
12oz bottle. Poured a lovely shade of amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and redder fruity notes with accents of pine and sweeter versions of the aforementioned malts.. I don’t know what it was about this, but I enjoyed it. The flavor found an infusion of molasses to join honey at the core.. nondescript bitterness plus salty character surrounded, and a touch of alcohol heat joined residual sugars and bitterness on the finish.. quite muddled. Lighter-bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. lots of residual sugars at the end, but also some nice piney bitterness.. all in all a very drinkable brew.

Poured a deep red amber with a light head that faded quickly to minimal lacing. Aroma was of sweet malts with a fruity hint. The taste began with malts with a ever-so-slight hint of nuttiness followed by moderate hop finish. The palate was decent to good. Overall, this is nice red ale, although the hop bitterness was a bit too much for my taste. Definitely decent quality though.
