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.

Good red ale with a nice bit of bitterness. Found the taste to be bit mild but it finished off nicely. Very cloudy in the glass and definitely tastes full bodied. Not a beer for those who want to knock a bunch back and not get filled up.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2012
Originally reviewed: 4/20/10. Bottled the 3rd week of February, 2010. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a very dense cloudy dark amber with a large rocky tan head on top. This head retains as well as any that I have seen. Lots of sticky lace and webbing clings to the glass. The nose is a bit underwhelming. I expected a sharp hoppy scent, but this carries some mild citrus, toast, and toffee. Nothing stands out though. Like the nose, the body is a slight disappointment. It’s somewhat creamy and smooth, but it’s a little thin. The carbonation level is low-to-moderate. Hopefully the flavor will make up for the shortcomings. Hmm. Not so much. There’s some orange zest noted, finishes a little tart and sour. A nice sweet balance in there with hints of caramel and toffee. Bitterness is low. This really wasn’t what I was expecting. I guess my scores correspond to my expectations. Maybe I need to go into each beer with no preconceived notions (?). Still, it was decent, just underwhelming is all.

Pours amber with an off white head and aroma of malt and fruit. Taste is well balanced, of malt and hops along with notes of fruits and grains with a hoppy finish. Very drinkable, solid brew.

Pours a dark brown applesauce color, with a very small head. Nose is hoppy with a strong pineapple presence. Taste is full of flavor, citrusy with pineapple predominating. Finish is dry and somewhat lingering and bitter. Actually quite drinkable and refreshing. Quaff Score 8 /10

a great compromise if you need a quick hop fix, but will not overpower your palate, a well balanced "go to" for a refreshing hoped up red ale

alobar (2875) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2012
Pours a dark amber color with no head. Limited aroma of caramel,pine, and resin. Caramel, toffee, and a slight hop ending comprise the flavor. Decent beer.Nothing exceptional.

hopscotch (9553) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle… Glowing dirty-orange ale with a large, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The dusty, earthy nose is of pine, wood and resin. Medium-bodied with vibrant carbonation. The flavor is a perfectly-balanced fusion of caramel, toffee, pine and stale, earthy hops. Short, crisp, clean finish. Not extraordinary in any way, but certainly refreshing.

Bottle. Orange caramel malt and pine/orange peel aroma. Hazy amber color with moderate head. Sweet orange toffee malt and moderately bitter ctirus peel/quinine bitterness. Very nice.
