COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Milwaukee Genius Series 1: Made with three styles of fresh American hops and fruity ale yeast that requires greater fermentation, it finishes with a dark amber appearance, spicy hop flavor and bold, malty backbone. The punch this potent brew packs reminds us all that when you want to make a point, youíre better off making a statement.

Arayaga2 (2122) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Hazy brown with cocoa colored head. Aroma is sweet and piney with a hint of cocoa and pine. Under it all, a fruity englishy yeast brings it together with some sprucey bitterness and mild bready toast into the finish. $5/22oz

thegreenrooster (4001) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Pour is a thick dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is super sweet malts followed by a nice hoppy pine resin. Flavor is more sweet malts with a roasted nut quality. Finish is maybe a little bit of licorice and a small alcohol presence. This is a pretty good beer with something new with every sip. And itís a frigging bargan,

JesusPooped (40) - Bay View, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Easily the best beer to come out of Lakefront Brewery. Pours a dark amber brown, huge 3 finger head and great retention. Smell is fruity, moderate hops, caramel, and alcohol. Taste is spicy, highly sweet yeast, hefty malt background, alcohol, and a hop variety (only 45 IBU), which becomes more apparent the warmer the beer is. A Very drinkable reserve/strong ale. $5 for a bomber certainly a good deal. Hopefully Lakefront catches up to the quality of other Wisconsin breweries ( Ale Asylum, Central Waters).

Oakes (15617) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2010
Hazy light brown. Bright peachy aroma with rich toasty dark bread happiness. Herbal, toasty and a crazy mix of citrus and dark grainy breads. Iím really not sure what to make of this other than I like it.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2010
Bottle. Leftovers from Beer Fest Asia 2010. As in my initial tasting of this beer, it simply blows the competition away (granted that said competition was the line-up of Singaporeís annual Beer Fest, maybe thatís not saying too much). The aroma is gorgeous, Iím getting a (for once itís not a cliche) balanced mix of malts and hops. Piney, citrusy hops and chocolate malts. How often do you actually get that in a beer, not just write it in your rating? Granted, I am currently on a bit of a cold turkey when it comes to quality brew, but this baby brought the chickens home for me! Yeah!

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle @ Beerfest Asia. Almost a 5 for appearance here, I canít keep my eyes off the gorgeous thick brown head. Big chewy aroma of brown bread. Sweet malts and a juicy palate. Lovely balance of herbal hops with smack of basil and rich dark malted grain, the dark malts are featured, highlighted, and extremely tasty. One of the festival highlights and would love to revisit in mellower settings.

Hangover (1117) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Nice red pour with a good sized, frothy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, strong and malty. Very upfront flavor of caramel and licorice with a bit of booziness and heat. Some spiciness and sticky hops linger on the palette. Very nice brew, distinct malt flavors throughout and well balanced.

blipp (8178) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours brown with an off white head. Spicy piney hop aroma with some background malty sweetness. The flavor is very well balanced, with sweet caramel malts, and a piney/floral/spicy hop profile. Pretty good.

Bottle. Toffee colored beer with a nice light tan head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Caramel and grapefruit flavor with light pine. Medium-plus. OK bitterness. Caramel lingers with grapefruit and light pine.
