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.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 An exceptional beer. I usually find Amber Ales a bit bland/boring but this is so flavorful and pretty well balanced. Leans to the sweet side. Bit of bitter. extremely delicious. Pretty original. StewardofGondor (1933) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2004 This is a descent brew. It’s very smooth and even sweet, almost syrupy, dare I say. Has nice medium brown undertones when it first hits your tongue, but then it livens up to its amber ale status. Since it’s the Milwaukee Ale House’s best seller, you’d be doing a disservice by not trying it, but after you’ve had your preview, switch over to the Pull Chain brew. It’s very similar, just more malt and hops and less sweet. JoeM500 (1909) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2003
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. Finhead (1860) - 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.

Amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is malty. Taste is roasted malt, a little creamy, some nuttiness. OK beer DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2004
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 (1587) - 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 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. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 16, 2014
On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House. Clean amber pour. Clean flavors. Malty with a creamy body. Nice.
