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, you’re better off making a statement.

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).

Hazy light brown. Bright peachy aroma with rich toasty dark bread happiness. Herbal, toasty and a crazy mix of citrus and dark grainy breads. I’m 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 Singapore’s annual Beer Fest, maybe that’s not saying too much). The aroma is gorgeous, I’m getting a (for once it’s 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 (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle @ Beerfest Asia. Almost a 5 for appearance here, I can’t 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 (1092) - 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.

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.

Sampled on 5/21/2010. This American Strong Ale pours a reddish amber color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with good lacing and nice retention. The aroma is caramel, brown sugar and sweet. Medium bodied American Strong Ale. The malts are caramel, bready, and sweet. The hops are floral and citrusy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Very smooth tasting. Nice beer, not over the top, but a lot of flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Served from a 22 oz bottle from Baron’s. The appearance is a very unfiltered and chunky brown with a light brown head. Very gross looking with the chunks in suspension. Aromas of sweet caramel, cotton candy, and a spicy hop. The flavors start with a nice spicy hop, followed with a hearty malt backing that rides on the palate for a while. Some nice bitter on the sides, and light amounts of caramel too. A bit of alcohol burn at times. Overall a solid just about average brew.
