Draft at the Lakefront Marathon. Pour is a deep amber with some iced tea notes in the nose. A little hop character. Very drinkable amber with a creamy mouthfeel and some light hoppiness and again the iced tea. Decent.

Pours an amber color with a medium foamy white head. Caramel aroma, with a bit of citrus. Taste is about the same......rather malty, with some pineyness to it. Nothing very special.

I’m not a huge fan of this beer: it’s a little darker for an amber and is a little too malty. I can see why others like it though: it has a somewhat fruity aroma and is a strong beer although relatively smooth

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Pours a nice amber body with a large head. Nice retention that brings back the froth again and again. Caramel, and fruit in the aroma and flavors of caramel as well. A pretty tastey brew, but a little too malty.

A pleasant brown ale that is set apart from others of the breed with grassy notes, but otherwise a fairly standard rendering of bready malts and clover hops.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 Mildly hazy deep amber with a thin tan head that meets its demise fairly quickly. Aroma of heavy caramel, fruit and lightly toasted malt. Flavor is heavy on the caramel with dark fruits and not much in terms of hops though a mild bitterness does come through on the finish. A bit oily and grainy and dry on the finish.

(02-15-08 = 8-4-7-3-13)Draught at the Gasthaus. Nice dark amber color with pleasant aroma. Nothing good or bad about palate. Beer had nice flavor and I enjoyed this beer and would try it again.

MaltOne (358) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2008
On tap at Silver Creek BrewPub. Nice session beer. Pretty copper color with no head to speak of. Starts malty with a well balanced hop finish. In fairness, Silver Creek serves everything chilled which may not bring out it’s best

On tap at Thirsty Troll Brewfest

This was the only other beer on offer from the Milwaukee Ale House. I wish they’d had a few more. This one was also good. I wouldn’t call it world class but it is solid coming from a brewpub not known for outstanding beers. Perhaps the rest of their lineup is weak but this one is not.

Aroma / Appearance - The amber body had a bit of carbonation. The nose was straightforward cherry, malts and caramel. It did not get too complex but it was not one dimensional either.

Flavor / Palate - Caramel, cherries and malt also form the basis on the taste. There aren’t any major flaws but there are also no real strengths. For an amber ale it does the job well.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Sampled at the brewpub on 6/25/07: Pours a dark amber copper with a frothy, clingy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of toasty grainy caramel malt and a hint of piny hops. Body starts with a fairly full and caramely sweetness along with some bittering earthy hop notes and peat, toward a bittersweet balanced finish.
