4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled, 2001. Typical APA orange color with a hint of red; somewhat cloudy and translucent, almost opaque. Nose is wonderful, flowery/hoppy and spicy though a bit restrained from this brewer; flavor that follows is even better, richly malty and hoppy at the same time; an exquisitely balanced brew with grapefruit and flower notes throughout and a very smooth, dry finish. A great APA from one of the USA’s best beermakers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not the best pale, but definitely not the worst, but nothing too memorable about it.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a great american pale ale. Nice flowery, hoppy nose and a clean finish. The earlier reviewer is absolutely correct about the freshness of this stuff and all Lakefront beers. They aren’t pasteurized and age poorly.
