Louie's Demise
(Milwaukee Brewing Company)

One of the OTHER breweries in Milwaukee. This is my first crack at Milwaukee Brewing's new canned offerings. They're now canning both their Louie's Demise and their Flaming Damsel in pint-sized cans. Cheers!

From the Milwaukee Brewing site:

"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 MBC original is similar to a German style malt beers."

Here we go...

Pour - dark amber, soft in appearance with a great looking stark-white head. This pours opaque, almost cloudy. 


Aroma - brown sugar, yeast, bread dough, gingerbread, caramel and tea


Taste - sweet but not cloying. Plenty of dark bread notes along with ginger and yeast. Soft on the tongue with a perfect carbonation level. It's a surprisingly light beer to drink despite the appearance. I'm happy!


Overall - Very drinkable with a solid malt flavor and easy on the palate. A great candidate for a pint can, well executed MBC!


Would I buy more of it? - sure. This is a very solid amber ale with lots of great flavor and quite session-able. 


Note - The rest of the story about "Louie's Demise" is on the Milwaukee Brewing site and you can read about how Louie actually died HERE!
