Sample at the brewpub. Damn I’m not getting what y’all are getting with this place. Light clear amber; sprucy nose, little malt...in the body, thickness, caramel, a light lingering bite, but fairly nondescript. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Dirty Orange Coloring. Hoppy and Dry. Not My Favorite Offering Here, but Still a Decent Ale bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Pours a murky brownish yellow with a medium beige head. Aroma is of citrus, caramel, and pine notes. Taste is slightly bitter with hop flavor, but finishes verrrry slightly sweet and short. This makes it pretty drinkable, although it is a little bit watery. pkbites (946) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Pours a caramel colored brown with a beige head that doesn’t last very long. Caramel, yeast, malt, bakery, and floral hops are in the nose. Thick caramel flavor initially, but a watery finish with little bitterness kills the expectation. The finish isn’t horrible, but it still kills the overall score. The watery aftertaste is disappointing!!!!!!& crossovert (12911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2011
12 oz bottle. Brewed and bottled by the Milwaukee Brewing Co.
Pours into my Milwaukee Brewing Co. pint glass with a murky copper color, rotten peach I’d say. The head is foamy and eggshell white and leaves some decent lacing.
There is not much smell to this one, then again the only APA that has ever had a smell to me was FFF Pride and Joy. They definitely need to dry ho this one. There is a little bit of hops and grain but it is pretty thin.
It has a mild resinous pine flavor, pretty much the same as the IPA but watered down. Some generic malt in there too.
Unfortunately after having FFF Pride and Joy all APAs seem average, all brewers looking to brew it need to up their games.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity. shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Fair warning, pales are not my cup of tea. This example of the genre seems to me to have no flavor other than the aggressive floral hops that muscle their way right up to the front. My first, and last. noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Medium hazy amber, moderate off-white head. Very nice hops aroma, mostly floral, a bit of citrus. Flavor contains the same hops aromatics, but I found the malts very off, wet cardboard, lactic sharpness, and on the finish, the sharpness and hops bitterness combined in a bad way. Medium body, light hops zest on the palate. rubbishystuff (2538) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Hmm, well this wasn’t bad but there is just something weird about all the Milwuakee Ale house beers. Maybe it is the yeast? Almost a soap like flavor? Maybe I was there on the wrong night? Serving: Tap MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2005
a cloudy copper yellow hugh w/ a thin white head w/ great lacing... the smell was grapefruit (light) and pine needles.. the palate was thin and carbonated. The flavor was mildly hoppy w/ a sort of stale finish overall I was unimpressed and wouldn’t drink this again.
