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.

Best of the mix pack. Good amber ale with a little bit of red robustness. Good alcohol content makes it a winner.

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a puffy white head. Dry hops in the aroma and in the flavor. Not much else to report. Pretty standard hoppy red.

Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured an orange-brown color with a medium sized fluffy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy, fruity and had notes of pine and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter and tangy with pine, grapefruit, bread and hints of caramel and pepper. Medium length finish. Medium body. Well done.

Bottle. Poured out clear ruby, white head, good carbonation. Piney, fruity, and fresh, some bite but very smooth all around. Iím not an IPA-lover, but this something quite different. Gorgeous color! Great taste!

Bottle. Pours ruby with a piney aroma. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Good balance of malt and piney hops. The high abv sneaks up on you.

An alright amber ale. I would consider this an American Strong. Tastes just like Stone Arrogant Bastard. Strong roasted malt and with a heavy hop backbone. Hops are earthy and brown. Medium carbonation. Alright beer.

brownish haze in color, defined hoppy aroma, lots o lacing. a sort of alternative low end IPA if you will. Or a sharply hopped amber. yeah thats it.

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 doesnít 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.
