very sweet and malt rich, carmely almost. could use some more hops for sure. It is a very drinkable beer and I'd recommend it if you're down on water street. true to the claim of the lable. BierMeHoos (650) - Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. It's ok, not great. Pours cloudy brown. Some weird fruit aroma. Not a big fan but I'm sure others might. mrjaxson (630) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Pretty tame for an amber ale, with none of the bite that can come with the genre. Good lookin’ on the pour with a nice aroma that’s more caramel than spruce, although they’re both there. Somewhat thin on the body, and a taste that’s a little sweet and a little bitter. Solid offering from another little guy bringing good brewing back to Beertown.

Hazy Brown, Huge Soapy Foam Head that Lasts and Leaves Lots Of Thick Lacing. Not Sure why but half of bottle gushes out once you pop a cap open. Has tiny Little Floaters. Faint Malt and Earthy Aroma. Taste About The same: Slightly Sweet Malt, A Little Earthy. Not Too Special Easy Drinker. No Dates, So No Way to Tell How Much Past Its Prime. Wish I Knew Of This Place While I Lived In Milwaukee. Passed it Many Times Without Knowing It is There. Gonna Have to Stop For A Tour Next Time I’m In Town. OK Session Beer. euniceradio (563) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2015
16oz can to cervoise. Pours clear amber, short white head. Aroma of caramel, white toast, brown sugar, maybe banana. Taste of same with sweet malt grain bill. Pretty smooth drinker.

Bottle 12oz. - Poured dark very cloudy amber color with foamy beige head, also alot of small chunks floating around suspended in beer!!
Aroma - Smelled of caramel malt, overly ripe apples and cider.
Flavor - Alot of toasted malt, caramel malt taste. Also had mild cider flavor that I liked. Reminded me of a apple jolly rancher with nice bitter finish.
Palate - Medium bodied with somewhat creamy texture. Carbonation is lively and finish is bitter and short.
Overall - Surprised that I liked this beer. I would buy again, it’s cheap and has nice flavor!! jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2011
Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a huge tan head. Nose is of malt and caramel. Very thick and creamy on the palate. The taste is of malt, caramel, spices and well balanced dry hopping on the finish. An excellent beer that pairs well with Sheboygan brats and onions. Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 Re-rate: I liked this one a lot better the second time around. Had a spicier malt scent (didn't notice the smoke this time around). Has a taste pretty representative of other scottish ales I've tried. Only thing that didn't do it for me this time around is the acidic finish. Original rating: This amber colored beer poured with a thick head and smell somewhat smoky. It was lightly hopped, but also had some sourness. Smooth drinking beer, but it just didn't do it for me. 5/3/5/3/10 BeerInHeaven (493) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2016
pours rich copper with a smallish but frothy off white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt. Pleasant malty taste. Semi-sweet finish. Easy drinking. Good! jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours amber with a faint head and sweet caramel on the nose. Earthy notes as well help to complement the red ale. Taste is sweet with a bit of bitter notes at the end. medium body with ab it of an oily finish.
