COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Milwaukee Genius Series 3: Inspired by the energy and audacity of the Fearless Fixed Gear Courier, Lakefront ran smack into this arresting creation. It’s RED, it’s BOLD and it tastes DAMN GOOD. We could go on and on about it, but the fact is, you have one in your hand right now, so crack it open yourself. This one’s got an ATTITUDE.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a deep reddish-amber color with an almost none existent tiny foam head. The head fades almost instantly leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is mostly of a caramel nature with some other sweeter and sugary aromas of brown sugar and molasses. Other aromas of a lightly toasted bread and a bit of an earthy and pine hop are there as well, producing overall a well-rounded smell. Taste – The taste begins with a clean, lightly toasted bread flavor with a rather decent level of caramel sweetness. The caramel is joined by some brown sugar as the taste advances with the roast letting up a bit. All the while, some hop flavors start working their way onto the tongue with some flavors of an earthy and herbal nature coming to the tongue. With a little bit of tangerine and some light pine also joining the flavor at the end, a rather smooth, moderately sweet red flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of both its thickness and carbonation. Both are rather nice for the easy drinking feel of the brew all while upholding the sweeter and lightly hopped flavors nicely. Overall – Very easy drinking but with a good level of flavor and complexity. A rather nice red overall.

onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Dark hazy amber under a thick sticky off white head. Caramelly yet herbal hoppy bitter nose with a touch of honey biscuit. Smooth flavor with a semi sharp lemongrass hoppiness, and a smooth earthy caramalty biscuity amberness. Nice.

NikkTwist (1540) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy dark orange pour with a nice creamy off-white head. Fair amount of lace. Unexpectedly darker and dryer than I was expecting. Burnt caramel covered orange peels. Autumn leaves. Resin with molasses. Feels like an IPA mixed with a red ale. Substantial (feels bigger than the style and listed ABV suggest) but the flavors are not overly complex. Beats most other nondescript "Amber Ales" but I’m not sure at all that I actually like drinking it. Bit bizarre.

Surprisingly hippy for an ale. Rich very rich and flavorful. The best brew from lakefront.

TXBadger (1269) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pours a nice red/amber color. Very up front with piney grass hop aroma on the nose, which follows on the palate. Finishes with a very nice caramel malt bready backbone that lets you know it’s a red.
