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.

Tap at the Happy Gnome. Red brown with a cream colored head. Huge caramel aroma and fruity resinous hops. Taste is mostly sweet with a light resiny bitter finish. Sticky feel.

onceblind (4670) - 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 (1747) - 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.

jbuzz (754) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Surprisingly hippy for an ale. Rich very rich and flavorful. The best brew from lakefront.

TXBadger (1567) - 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.

superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/11/2013. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep red-orange color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, brown sugar, biscuit, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malts and citrus hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, brown sugar, light biscuit, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown sugar, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, floral, grass light pine, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt and citrus/grassy hop flavors; with a good malt/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and lightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale. Good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and citrus hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.
