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.

degbert (1196) - 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.

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.

kevinator (1056) - 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 (198) - 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

Sammer (1053) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Can. Taste is rye, wheat, grain, orange juice and hay. Gentle booze finish. Man, it is great to see quality craft beer come out of North Texas. Cheers!

lb4lb (2555) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a clear dark gold. Small offwhite head. Smell is subtle and balanced but not much is detectable. grain and faint hops i guess. Taste is similar to the smell. Just not a lot going on. Pretty bland and balanced. Very subtle hop presence both flavor and bitterness wise. Very smooth, almost creamy and somewhat drinkable. Decent, but with a slight almost alcoholic finish to it that kind of detracts. Kind of thin bodied and soft carbonation that is almost like a nitro beer. Drinkable, but I wouldnt get this again. The alcohol like flavor peeks through more as it sits.
