3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Taster at Standard Market in Westmont, March 10, 2012. The server told me about using Centennial and Cascade, and this does have a nice hoppy smell. A little cloudy reddish brown, ring of foam. Nice big hoppy taste, too. Malts just slightly in the background. Stands out differently than an IPA, just a nice hoppy red ale. 7-4-7-4-15<hr>
Sample from the 2011 Midwest Beer Fest thatís still on my phone. Sample poured from a bottle with a nice short layer of foam, a little hoppy smell. Just a straight hoppy beer smell. A little fruity backing from a warm ale fermentation. A nice combination that I havenít had from Lakefront in the past few years. A good hoppy red ale with caramel malts. Quite frankly one of the better Lakefront beers. 6-4-7-4-14. So both rating total 3.7. Glad to see I was consistent.

Bottle. Picked up in a variety pack after a brewery tour at Lakefront (highly recommended). Pours dark cloudy red with a thick head. Nice aroma with tones of citrus. Good lacing and an enjoyable finish. Overall, a very enjoyable red ale, would buy again.

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.

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.

Dark cloudy red color. Not much in the area of aroma. It does have a pleasant ale flavor. Very enjoyable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours mahogany with nice mocha head and good lacing. Smell is sweet candy citrus hops and caramel malts. Pretty nice. Taste reveals a hint of brown paper bag (unfortunately) that leads itself to majority caramel malts and some slightly faded citrus hops. Ok, but I may have had a slightly old bottle. I hate to ding it for that, but I expect fresh my score would have been a tad higher.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 An enjoyable brew that is both full of flavor and well balanced. Has the same ílaid-backí quality as some other of their beers too (which is a good thing).
