Our flagship brand; this medium bodied amber ale starts with a rich malt flourish that’s kept in perfect balance by a smooth hop finish. This MKE original is similar to a German style alt beer.

Pours bubbly, frothy white head with deep copper body. Decent caramel aroma with a little skunky hop. Flavor is mostly sweet, caramel malt with light dry hop aftertaste. Some plastic. Medium body. Okay stuff.

Fresh, fruity aroma. Typical amber aroma. Reddish, brown body. Thin white head. Clear body. No lace. No visible carbaontion. Basic, roasted malt flavor that is dominated by malt. A little thin, mostly malty with some sweetness. Not bad, but nothing spectacular. Session possibilities.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2010 12oz bottle. Tasted 7/28/07. Dark amber. Nice hue. Minimal head. Rye and bready aromas. Mildly figgy. Medium bodied with moderate malts and dry hops. Nice medium roast. Sticky with a cola ish effervescence. Good and sticky. RE-RATE...Tasted 8/15/10. Sampler from the Brewpub. Mildly hazy with a thick ring of light khaki head. Great toasty aromas! Great nose! Mild caramel, toast and burnt sugar. Medium bodied with, once again, a fantastic flavor for an amber ale. Malt dominant with nicely roasted malts. Sticky finish mixed with an astringent bitter zest. Very nice indeed!

12 oz bottle pours clear amber with a white head. About as low-key as a beer gets. No real flaws. Clean and crisp. Just not a whole lot going on.

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.

Can. Pours amber with dumb head. Taste is stale metal. Aroma sucks. This beer isnt good.

Styles (2016) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2006 Tap: copper amber with a surprising hoppineess to the aroma. Flavor has a faint hint of sweet caramel malt, and that’s it. Bottle from Gondor has no hop presence whatsoever. Just grainy sweet caramel malt, toasty/roasted notes and not much else.
