UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 14 Oct, 02 - (7,2,7,2,13 - 3.1) Brown color with a quickly evaporating light tan head. Mild malt and light citrus aroma. Light brown sugar flavors with a touch of toastiness. A bit watery and sprity in mouthfeel. Finishes with an of bitterness. Noting exciting.
Rerate - Did not have the citric components and much smoother on the palate. In fact it was the palate that brought me back to rerate. As I tried it again I found the body to quite smooth and silky and thought that it deserved at least a 4. Found it to be a much better version that the the one in 2002. muzzlehatch (4951) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2002
Medium-brown color, fairly clear and transparent, medium lasting head. Malty slightly nutty aroma; really lovely buttery nutty rich flavor, wonderful mouthfeel and ending; one of the best brown ales I’ve had lately, super-super drinkable. duece (103) - Waterford, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2002
Nice sweet aroma and flavor with a subbdued finish nice but not overly remmemberable. Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 11, 2002
Buttery aroma. SLightly smoky flavour. Middy at best.

sweet malty aroma. deep burgundy in color. slight smoke taste, minimial hop notes. I wouldn’t buy this again. hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2002
It’s textured oddly, I’ll give you that, but the big malty taste of this beer is special - toasty, warm, and fruity (cherries). Jfishback13 (273) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2003 This beer didn't settle too well with me. Lots of malt flavor, but none of it is really good. The aftertaste leaves your mouth pretty foul too. Tastes a lot like their amber ale, but not quite as good on the finish. noy-zee (63) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2002

This beer is great across the board. It is a the aftertaste is a tiny bit bland, but very satisfying. Keep it up Milwaukee.
