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.

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.

A thick ring was the only head atop this deep amber/caramel offering. Aroma was big on lemon with nutty malts. Lemon carries through to the flavor, with thick & sweet malts and a nutty finish. Malty and sessionable. If Louie’s actually dead, this is only a mediocre tribute.

Much more a scotch ale than an amber. On cask at the time of my visit. Peaty malt nose and oaky barrel notes. Caramel was rich and thick, alcohol even peeked out. Finish is long and sweet, leaving a scotchy, malty aftetaste that I really enjoyed.

Amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is malty. Taste is roasted malt, a little creamy, some nuttiness. OK beer

3.4
Finhead (1814) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2016 Clear, amber with a white head. The aroma has caramel and light toast. It has smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is mostly sweet with a smooth finish.

Tap at the brewpub. Mahogany body, thin white head. Minimal aroma, some malt and hops (duh). Brown suagar, caramel, and more grassy than piney hops in the flavor. Not much of a scotch ale, more like an amber with a little more malt. It tastes fine, just nothing remarkable.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2004
Light malt aroma, light but sweet malt taste, not many hops around here. Nothing wrong, just not bold enough to be rated with the higher beers

2.9
ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Amber orange pour with a white head. Aroma is caramel, pennies, some boiled greens hop notes? Flavor is predominantly caramel, some sweet malt. Not much hop character. A little metallic. Ok.

On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House. Clean amber pour. Clean flavors. Malty with a creamy body. Nice.

3.6
FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours deep amber with a small white head. Aroma is nicely malty, biscuit, a bit doughy, touch of cookie sweetness, caramel and toffee. Flavor is much the same, lots of maltiness, sweet caramel and doughy notes. Finishes a touch hoppy and crisp. Medium slightlyu creamy body and a crisp carbonation. Good for the style.
