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. Itís RED, itís 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 oneís got an ATTITUDE.

Bottle-- boy oh boy, this Lakefront variety pack keeps getting better and better! Kind of a burnt red color with medium lacing. The aroma is surprising hoppy with some malt. Taste is hoppy too with malt rounding off the edges. I was expecting more red ale than IPA, but Iím very pleased with the beer.

theOptimator (329) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Aroma is grapefruit hops forward. Appearance is redish brown, very little carbonation and very hazy. Taste is hops forward. Grapefruit aroma hopping and a firm bitterness drive this beer. There is plenty of malt present as well, but still a hoppy beer first. Palate is medium full. Bitterness lingers. Overall a good beer. The hops in this are nice. Nothing unique, but very drinkable.

Scipio (756) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Pours an amber with a full beige head. Aroma of pine, caramel, and some citrus hops. Taste leans more towards the citrus direction, specifically lemon and grapefruit. Also contains pine and caramel. Citrusy aftertaste lingers. Medium body, and much more smooth instead of carbonated. Pretty good.

sethbreaker (175) - New York, Greater London, USA - MAY 10, 2012
From the bottle. Pours a hazy red colour with a large white head. Aroma of orange and toffee. It tastes like a lot of other beers out there but thatís not a bad thing by any means. Sweet caramel malts with a good level of citrus bitterness.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2012
Iím an urban cyclist, despite my current woes being due to a recent bicylce accident. As such, I appreciate a "cycling-themed" beer. Also, Iím willing to forgive this beer its association with the hipster fixation with all things "fixie". Bottle, thanks to Duffman, with my deep gratitude, as always. Pours clear deep red, ruby, with a flash of garnet, or some suck nonsense. Head is 1-finger thick, cream in colour, with quite lovely lacing. Nose is solid conventional 3-C hops, nice grapefruit. Flavours of rich malt, solid citrus/pine from the hops, nothing wrong here, just nothing to set it apart from the crowd.

Pours cloudy red wiith a fluffy white head. Faint hoppy aromas. Taste is slightly bitter with a sweet caramel finish.

Chicagio (5) - - APR 30, 2012 does not count
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. Itís somewhat creamy and smooth, but itís a little thin. The carbonation level is low-to-moderate. Hopefully the flavor will make up for the shortcomings. Hmm. Not so much. Thereís 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 wasnít 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.

zgaier (1675) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2012
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
