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.

great red ale, I have had a few reds in the past and really enjoyed them, but the good ones seem hard to find. Fixed gear as an Imperial red is really the cats meow, as it is brings both all the great peices of a red ale into an imperial style

BOSSbrewer (2245) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours amberish gold with a thin quickly dissipating off white head. Aroma is some floral, some caramel. Flavor is a bit harsh. Bitterness is harsh. Some cardboard. Aroma doesn’t follow through. Overall, a decent beer, though.

A well-crafted beer. Red IPA with a nice look but low aroma punch. Smooth start with slight bitter finish. Not every complex but a nice beer. Draft in Chicago (emerald loop) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

obxdude10 (2098) - 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
