Had at Lakefront brewery. Not a particularly complex ale but if you needed a easy drinking session beer and didnít want a pale lager this would be a nice bet. Too bad it is retired. Serving: Tap

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from a mix 8 pack. Says that it was bottled in late December (week 4) of 2009, so I donít think it is retired. Pours with a hazed golden body with minimum white head. Aroma of earthy and a bit bitter. Slight spicy hop, and a similar lactic quality to the one found in Guinness of all things. Taste is slightly fruity, lightly lactic, grainy and watery. A bit of pitted fruit. Not much going on. Medium bubbles. Dryish finish with a touch of sourness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Pours a nice light clear yellow hue with a tall foamy white head. Okay retention with just a spot or two of lace.
S: Very sweet malty aromas. Lots of fresh bread with hints of cream of corn.
T: Malty sweet up front. Mildly doughy with the corn coming through. There is a wonderful hop addition though to balance all the sweetness. Mild citrus notes with a nice bit of bitter floral and grassy hops in the finish.
M: Light in body, smooth, sparkling carbonation.
D: Good, for a lighter beer this one really packs a punch. Too bad they retired it cause it is the best Lakefront beer I have ever had. Beats all the light Macro swill by a mile.
For what it is, a real solid beer.

12oz bottle. Pours an orangeish color with a huge foamy white head. Head stays at around 1.5 fingers. Nose is grassy with a light straw and toast malt note. Palate is fizzy and stingy with a medium feel. Flavors are grass and straw, hay, etc with some light toast and lots of foam and fizz.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. INFECTION!!! woooooo INFECTION! but its seems to be a positive thing for this beer so I shall rate it! The description of this beer is quite odd. Pours a very clear glowing golden with a medium foamy sudsy white head. Aroma is fruity, lightly sweet and tangy, some sour, touch of acidity and maybe some brett. Wow... Itís almost lambic-like, which make sense as its now a funky low-alcohol blonde ale. Flavor is fairly sharp, some acetic, loads of funky cheesy brett, light hard-candy caramel glassy sweetness, but mostly dry. Med/light bodied with larger somewhat corse soda carbonation, quite dry. Happy infection here.

Had this from a mix 12-pack I picked up while visiting Milwaukee. A solid ale, but nothing special by any means.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
The appearance is a sunny, clear yellow. Hint of orange. Tons of carbonation. Icy, white lace. Decent specks of lace. The smell is of a light ale, almost to the point of being lager-like. Strictly average. The taste is that of a very skimpy lager. Corny and close to a macro for sure. Not really unpleasant but bargain basement flavor. The feel is light but with a touch of a creamy body; not bad. Itís a very basic, unchallenging brew. Not much to distinguish it. A challenge to finish, quite honestly.
