This is an exceptionally enjoyable beer. But it makes me want to ask, "What's with Wisconsin and their extra sweet beers?" Does it have something to do with pairing the beer with all the cheese they've got up there? This amber ale is tasty, alright, but I'm thinking Iowa could export some of our hops to Wisconsin to help them make some balanced beers.
Yum! This tastes like homebrew, which, by the way, for many of us, that's a compliment. To be a little more specific the taste reminds me of the wort of homebrewing. Wort is a word borrowed from German for the mixture of malts, hops and water that will, with time, patince and the activity of yeast, eventually become beer. This Wisconsin lager has the fresh malty sweetness I've learned to appreciate when sampling the hydrometer tube.
