I canít beleive that it took me so long to rate this one. I;ve had it several times and always enjoy it as a clean, tasty, craft brew that is easily available and fairly inexpensive. Itís very well balanced leaning on the sweet side but still maintaing a nice profile of hops. A great session beer.

pours amber with lots of settiment making it cloudy. thick frothy white head but not much lacing. aroma is sweet, maybe a combo of raisons, tea, and malt. taste is also a combination of things ranging from lemon, malt, and hops. nice balance.

Pours out a nice brownish hued color with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is very nice with a good melody of hops, caramel and slight cream flavor, very nice beer

Pours a beautiful clear amber with a very nice head; under the smoky circumstances, the aroma is limited.

The flavor is deeply fruity, orange, lemon, and a sweet caramel that some avoids being cloying. A pleasent amount of well-rounded hops balance out a nicely toasted malt profile; the beer offers a gentle but sufficiently dry finish and the mouthfeel is spot-on for a session amber. This is a very nice (if not overly challenging) beer. Iím impressed!

clouded brown body that has a bit of a lemon colored head that rings and sticks. smell is iced tea, caramel, and honey. iced tea flavor, crisp and a tad astringent, but good. sweet lemon and toffee flavor too. very crisp finish. an easy drinker

I think this one may have been sitting around a while, itís a batch 7027. Nice amber color with a good deal of sediment. Creamy white head. I donít have all that much to say about it other than, I could drink a lot of this, but itís probably a little too sweet for my tastes.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Bottle, Batch 7064. Poured a medium orangey-amber with a short, creamy white head. There was a good deal of sediment floating around in there. Sweet, malty arouma of primarily caramel maltage, with a nice dose of floral hops. Smooth caramel and noble hops were well-balanced in the flavor, with some subtle spice at the finish. Smooth on the palate with hoppy bitterness around the edges. This was definitely a tasty and well-crafted amber.

Do they make a bad beer? Tried this the other night for the first time in a while, and I can say is that I need to get a case of this next trip to the store. Hazy orange with some nice frothy off white head. Nose is rich malt and yeast, light light floral hops as well. Taste is a rich malt backbone, semisweet, with a nice yeast and hop note.Nice body. Proof that a beer doesnt need to be overloaded and big to be tasty.

This brown ale is fantastic for a moderately priced pick-up. Almost no beers that can be commonly found in the grocery store (in Michigan) can be compared, and it is a great beer to introduce to non-beer lovers.
