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.

Iím really trying not to be biased, as I am never remotely impressed with Lakefront. So, with an open mind...this still falls short. In fact, I wouldnít put this in the red category but brown as itís too nutty and malty. Not my favorite red by any means...but good for Lakefront standards.

great red amber ale. Chewy, strong swallow, thick, unusual but good unusual. I would buy this if I were a daily red drinker.

obxdude10 (2085) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2014
On draft at the Park Tavern in Rosemont. The pour was a dark copper color with a bit of an amber hue. The head was big and pillowy light tan color with good lacing around the inside of the glass. I tasted lots of caramel malt and a hint of rye, along with some really nice hop flavors.

Some delayed stank in the end. Copper Falls water. Fog, not froth. The more that I drink it, the less that I like it.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, tiny bubbled, ivory head, with some lacing, over a hazy dark amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is pine, resin from the hops, light toasted malts with cereal, biscuit, no esters, balance slightly to the hops.....taste is slightly sweet malts, with light floral tones, moderate pine, citrus leading to a medium bitter finish, no esters, balanced between malt and hops.....mouth feel light of medium body, no alcohol, slightly sticky, carbonation makes a creamy, tingly sensation, with light acid. This is a nice ad-mixture of elements of an APA and Amber styles It is either a malty APA or a hoppy Amber. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with same off white head. Nose is caramel and maybe red apple? Taste has some hop bitterness. Some spice and dryness in the aftertaste.

[ Keg ][ 5oz ][ Lakefront ][ $1.50 ][ Plastic Cup ][ 8.18.14 ]
>> Clear tea red pour, tan foam. Good lace. Nose is a tad vegetal, spicy cabbage, Munich malt. Taste is bitter, nutty, soapy, dry with lemon. Not offensive, a red IPA of sorts.

On tap at Brunzies. Mild sweet malty with neutral fruit and light hop notes. Coppery amber clear with creamy light beige lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with nutty notes. Neutral fruity hops with very mild bitterness at the finish. Smooth after.

This is honestly now my favorite red. I had this on tap, AT the brewery, many times. Very nice in color and appearance (amber red, as it should be). Complex flavor for a red. Aroma is standard for a red, nothing crazy but not boring.
