COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style fruit beer made with Wisconsin’s Door County cooking cherries and lager yeast. The tartness of the cherry is balanced with the sweetness from the 2-row barley and the flavoring of Mt. Hood hops.

really a pretty nice beer, only thing missing was a real hop taste. Ruby red color, nice head. Has a real strong aftertaste of cherries. In fact the cherry is the dominant flavor here, refreshing but not quite what you think of when you get a beer. a nice beve.

"there;s still hints of a mediocre brew underneath, but because the cherry part is done well, this is the best LF beer i’ve had of 9. the cherry part tastes natural, smells sweet and has a very pleasing tart aftertaste. otherwise, i’d pass on this.

12 oz bottle. (April 2014 bottling?) The hazy reddish-amber body is covered by a small weak head. Aroma of canned cherries and biscuit. The flavor is similar and rather reminiscent of cherry pie, although way less sweet: this lager has a nice mix of sweet, tart and faint bitter aspects.

drpimento (2271) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Poured with a small off-white head no lace and a clear dark orange amber color. Aroma was mild with Beery malt hand of tart cherry. Flavor is a very straightforward malty tart cherry beer. Body is okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(bottle) Pours a natural cherry color with thin head, no glass lacing. Minimal aroma noted. The flavor is also a natural cherry (thank you) without cloying sweetness and a smooth malted balance. Long finish. Well done within the style.

Bottle. Reddish amber pour with minimal head. Tart cherry, lager yeast, and a little trash on the nose. Not great.

Reddish pour from a bottle at Rugans. White head. Fruity. Smells and tastes like a basket of cherries. The bartender and my wife love it. I am lukewarm on this.

decent beer from lakefront, has a smell of cherrys/dough and the cherry taste is like the taste of a cherry from canned cherry pie filling which isnt a bad thing, the main thing going against this beer is its brewed in the same state as new glarus belgian red. overall not bad and a good summer brew

arkurzynski (1544) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Deep amber pour. Tangy malt and faint cherry in the nose. Flavor is light caramel malt with a nice tart cherry backend. Lingering cherry, caramel malt and mild bitterness. Not too bad.

While not always a fan of fruity beers, Lakefront Cherry Lager is the exception. Usually, I find fruit flavoring too sweet and overpowering. But, this beer has a subtle hint of tart cherry flavor. A very good lager for warm summer months.

New, fresh batch for 2014. Light amber. Good little soapy white head. Aroma is grainy, only a touch of tart cherry. A more rare instance where the aroma is a let down to the flavor. Flavor really comes to life in comparison. Much more tart cherry. Dark cherry. Graham cracker. Juice from a cherry pie. Much better than I expected, particularly the flavor. Pretty good, However not 9.99 a 4pack good.
