COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This top fermenting amber-colored ale is brewed using generous amounts of malt and kettle hops. The trademark of this ale is its beautiful hop bouquet and taste that comes from a liberal dry hopping of the highest grade Cascade hops during the secondary fermentation. The malt firmness of this ale comes from the perfect mixture of two-row malted barley, carapils, and caramel specialty malts. The ale has an original gravity of 1060 and is fermented at 65 degrees farenheight which imparts the classic ale fruitiness to the brew.

Bottle - Nice mellow hop orange nose with a bit of caramel sweetness. Pale clear gold with a minimal head. Although the hops are there, the caramel and malts are overwhelming. If you prefer a malt forward ale with some hops this is what you are looking for, I prefer it the other way around. I also get a bit of booze at the finish.

Barreras (932) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours an amber color with a citrusy aroma. Taste is slightly bitter with a slight sweetness. Mild bitterness throughout with orange citrus notes. Overall a decent IPA that is easy drinking.

Very enjoyable pale ale. Well balanced, refreshing, a decidedly creamy/smooth palate. Good stuff.

Hazy orange, even head, classic bouquet. Creamy texture. Vanilla and grass, malt warmth. Can feel the hops long after the taste is gone. Hits the spot, recommended.

jebert (494) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber gold with a finger sized tan white head mostly dissipating. Nose is licorice and hops. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is hoppy with hints of citrus and malt. Nice flavorful brew that pairs well with blue point oysters on matzo crackers.

AGAquino (658) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
12 oz bottle courtesy of Joe K. Nicely hopped, with malts to balance out. Very drinkable Pale Ale.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Liked this one a lot. Creamy is right. Tastes like the cream soda of beer. Light sweet and refreshing.

marcus (6320) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle from Liquid Planet, Missoula. Pours cloudy amber wit a rocky beige head and a fruity smoky aroma. There is a hearty smoked malt flavor with the raspy characteristic of an amber ale.

Cream City is typical for Lakefront in that these fine folks always seems to go for a balance. You expect the hoppiness in a pale ale (and you get it here), but they throw in enough malt to (somewhat) even out the bitterness with sweetness. Enjoyed from a 12-oz bottle.

Lakefront did this pale ale right. It is light and drinkable but with a nice hoppinesa.
