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.

I was struck to see that this is an amber ale, but it starts with such a big, big aroma, it has Double IPA character and aspirations, including a perfumey note and a rounded hop flavor. Good beer. (bottle at Ale Jail beer festival, September 2012)

Excellent Red Ale from Wisconsin's 2nd best craft beer maker! Smooth finish, malted hops with a hint of caramel. Darker Red beer, but a fantastic beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 13, 2012
A - Pours a hazy amber-red with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel and bready malts with grapefruit and pine hops and a touch of red fruit. T - Starts off with sweet caramel malts with some grapefruit and citrus hops and some bitterness. Through the middle, some bready malts come through with some resiny pine hops and some more bitterness. The finish is a mix of sweet caramel malts, tropical and pine hops, and a bit of red fruit. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and lightly bitter and dry finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice balanced red ale with a good malt and hop balance and a nice hop profile.

Bottle. Amber body with a frothy, off-white head. slowly diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, cookie, pine, resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finiehs lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Best thing about it is the lingering bitterness. Otherwise, itís mostly raw hop taste, though that is balanced with malt sweetness.

tmoreau (3474) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 On tap at the annual CBS picnic, self served to clear plastic with an orangey amber hue, a nice layer of light tan, creamy, head foam, and waves & spots of lacing. The nose was mild but a pleasant dose of citrusy orange & grapefruit, resin, light toastiness, and caramel sweetness. The flavor was similar notes that projected moderate strength, but good balance. The hop bitterness was medium, the body was a little lighter than medium, maybe due to softer carbonation, and the finish was dry. Decent, and paired well with the picnic faire. Again a draft encounter, this time at Marquette Kitchen & Tap in Lombard, IL.. Presented a lasting, cakey/rocky layer of head foam, with clingy spray as lacing. Noticed some added pit fruit in the aroma, medium bodied, better effervescence, and more of a moderate citrus & rind statement to the hop bitterness. +.2

Leighton (17473) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Keg at The Pony Bar UES, NYC. Pours clear, rich amber with a small, creamy foam head. Character holds caramel malts, light berries, piney hops, toasty sugars. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Very faintly syrupy. Light warmth towards the end, somewhat sticky, faintly resinous with more pine, a bit of toasted malts, caramel. Fine beer.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 2, 2012
Smells of toast, citrus, caramel. Flavours of the same. The malt flavours are up front and finishes slightly bitter with grapefruit and citrus notes. Not bad.

First time i drank this warm and of course it didnt taste that good. Second time drank this cold and man was it worlds better. Great ale. Smooth and refreshing. Its had a sweet vanilla taste. And almost a hibiscus flavor.

I tend to get suckered by beers like this-- nice rich, carmely reds that have a blazing hop note or two through them. This one seems to lack some complexity in that hop note, but it has a nice drinkability. And itís a rare beer than can get oakey, carmely, and hoppy at the same time while avoiding any major missteps in taste or aftertaste. Pretty good.

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. Off-white head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Caramel and bread aromas. Medium bodied with sourdough and caramel upfront turning to a lasting roasted resin finish.
