COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer is a special time in Grapevine, Texas filled with fun and family activities, festivals and all around good times. Every Friday night over the calm of Lake Grapevine, we celebrate the summer with fireworks and with our friends. The parks surrounding the lake are filled with onlookers and the lake strewn with boats and kayaks affording a breathtaking view of the fire-lit sky. And nothing hits the spot like Lakefire, a refreshingly hoppy American rye pale ale, spicy with a slightly sweet maltiness balanced by a smooth hop finish and subtle fruit aroma. The Lakefire is a unique pale ale and a GCB crowd favorite.

Pours lightly hazy amber with a thick head that leaves nice lacing. Weak aroma is mostly floral. Taste is more interesting, with good hop/malt balance and a dose of spicy rye.

Draft at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a light copper with a medium white head. The aromas are rye, grass, citrus. The mouthfeel is watery and slightly dry with a light bitterness and lingering aftertaste. Cheers!

Hazy golden brew with fast fading head. Smells of rye and wet hay. Taste is some pepperish rye with a grainy background. Decent brew but would like to have been trying this on a hot day. One of the many brews picked up on my trip to Fort Worth so hope to go back in summer to try this one again. Oh and some overall points lost from me for having to take it in the CAN.

Light copper pour, quick white head. Nose is light malt, hint of rye and spruce. Bitter. Middle is medium roasted grain and more hints of spicy rye. Finish is softly butter. Decent.

degbert (1287) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Can. Pours a really attractive deep gold with a high, medium-graineed, lacy, off-white head. Nose is floral and spicy, though quite mild. Crisp, spicy, and bitter up front, but still quite mild; a fruity and treacly sweetness balances out the dryness of the rye and the hops. Finish is long and drier. Nice, easy to drink, and not terribly intense.

AmEricanbrew (6181) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Can@ trailer. Hazy amber color with ivory head. Dry bread, mild floral, grainy malt aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Lightly sweet, grainy pale malt flavors with rye spice, and subtle floral hoppage____smooth drying finish----good.

Mild hazy orange copper pour. Thick fluffy white head with good lacing. West coast hop aroma with medium caramel and some rye spice malt. Flavor had decent malt notes. Toasty, rye, and caramel. Pine and citrus hops. Clean medium dry finish. ---Rated via iPhone

kevinator (1155) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Decent little pale ale. Aroma of hops and rye. Light golden color with a bubbly appearance and fizzy white head. Light and watery palate with a clean finish. Piney bitterness up front with a lingering peppery rye flavor. Finishes somewhat dry. Good summer beer.

Steverus0 (217) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Underrated charmer. Pours a slightly opaque light copper with abundant head. Nose is pleasant florals notably bereft of the spice the rye moniker promises. Medium body brings in sweet malts maybe a bit too much in balance with the still dominant floral hop character. Rye input is mild but helps create a brew that is both clean on the palate and full of character. Finishes an appropriate clean for a hot summer evening on the lake. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep amber pour, white head from the can. Heavy malts, rye, bread, and dough. Easy palate, dough, toffee, rye, faint hops.
