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 beer. It is not my favorite, but it went down well with little to no "bad beer face". Haha

Dacrza (450) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2013
DATE TASTED: November 21, 2013... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint... OCCASION: new Dream Theater and my wife’s thirty-seventh birthday equals a good night!... APPEARANCE: copper-amber body; creamy off-white one-finger head that laces rather thickly--attractive... AROMA: quite a hoppy sensation for a red; bright, active, almost suggestive of its 6.8% ABV... PALATE: intensely biting presence; medium to full-bodied with a substantial finish--bold...TASTE: immediate taste of pinecone--definitely American--with a confident underpinning of malt to provide a big-mouthed balance...OVERALL: I am beginning to see why Lakefront has garnered such a quality reputation, as this brew snuck up on me with veritable strength and a balance that rewards...the style is not given to immediate impressiveness, but this offering is enjoyable and somewhat distinctive...

Tmoney99 (10087) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear dark amber hue with medium frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy aroma of earthy hops and toasted malt. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor of malt and earthy hops with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

rangerred (861) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2013
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy medium red with a one finger off-white head. Amazing head retention with a thick head hanging over the beer for a long time and lots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma is very toasty and malty, just like a good read ale should be. Pine resin hops come through in a big way. Toast, caramel and and toffee on the flavor along with a big shot of pine resin and tree bark from the hops. Bitterness is very high but is not over the top. This beer is on the hoppier side of the style but it works well. Thick and chewy mouthfeel with moderate stickyness on the finish. Overall, I was impressed by this beer. Lakefront has been hit and miss for me but this one is definitely a hit. Wish i would have picked up more than a single.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent reddish copper with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes tastes mildly sweet and malty with an average mouthfeel and a touch of bitterness (light oxidization?). Okay.
