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.

superspak (2215) - 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.

MaltOne (185) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2014
Pours chestnut brown, frothy khaki head. Aroma is resin, citrus pith, with bit of sweet malt. Flavor starts if as a dry malt, finishes slightly sweeter. Palate medium body with a clean start and slight lingering sweet syrup finish. Overall, very drinkable, not complex.

thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 3, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized very tan colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark amber colored body and a fair lacing. The nice aroma was floral sweet and malt hop. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of bitter oak sweet crisp and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

davidajensen (203) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2014
I have a mixed opinion on this one. The hops are sticky and the head is fluffy like no other. This beer tastes crazy fresh. But the flavor, isnít all that good. Iím getting hints of liquorice or anise, Canít get into it.

On tap at the Spotted Fox in St. Charles, IL. Nice deep amber color with an enjoyable hoppy finish. A very good American red ale from a brewery with the best tour. A must visit if in Milwaukee.

Ashtar (1) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 26, 2014 does not count
Had on tap in NZ. Nice dark copper orange hue. Bitter caramel and over ripe stone fruit on the nose. Apricot, Orange slight unbalanced hop bitterness (but perhaps a lil cold) on the palate but a nice big american amber ale when all is said.
