Sample in Milwaukee. Dark amber. Light malty nose, hint of tobacco. Refreshing, clean flavor/mouthfeel, big malt front and piney hop finish; caramel and a bit of honey. Better than most at this location. burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2004
The body was a medium amber color. It has the taste of a "generic" macrobrew...kind of like a Budweiser. The flavor reminded me more of a witbier than an amber. jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Milwaukee - Large lingering white head over a brown-red beer. Obvious caramel notes, trace of bitterness, some hop character. Nothing special, but no flaws. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2003
(Draught) Pours a cooper color with a small beige head. Descent tasting amber ale. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 2, 2003
(Bethesda) Clear copper body with a beige head. Aroma is floral, malty, light grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, roasty, malty, some floral. Medium body. Very pleasant amber -- good for beginners, and for the rest of us.

(Milwaukee) Amber bodied, tight head. some caramel, lightly roasted baley. Somewhat nutty, a bit dry PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Dark amber with a slow head. Corny smell, hoppy, a bitter flavor.. a thin palate, and the lingering taste of a few undefined malts. not narsty... but not to interesting either. bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2003
This beer is pretty boring. Amber and a little fizzy. Nothing really stands out about it otherwise. Dogbrick (13749) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 1/13/04: From a sampler at the Indy location: I liked this one a little better than the Cincinnati version. Pours a reddish amber color with a medium thin light beige head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is mostly caramel and malt with some hops. Medium body with a subdued malt flavor, as well as a pinch of nuts and caramel. The finish is not that great though.JoeM500 (1909) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2003

Slight notes of caramel and anice with a thin body and lingering sweet finish.
