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.

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.

Good beer that will get you drunk quick, only have to hold your breath for the swigs of the first 1-2 bottles, after that just rolls down your throat.

euniceradio (388) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2016 12oz bottle to tulip. Pours ruby/amber, solid beige head. Aroma of biscuit, orange rind, grapefruit, mango, perfume. Taste of same with astringent bitterness barely balanced with a huge malt bill. Lots of rye to balance. Mouthfeel is heavy syrupy.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Burnt umber color with a moderate, manila folder colored head and decent lace. Aromas of stewed fruit. Some sweet caramelized malt and herbal hops in the background. I keep sniffing, but not much more to this one. Sweet toasted malt in the front. Some mildly rancid nuts work their way in along with some licorice and bitter herbal hops. Just not my type of brew. Iíd call it a IIA (imperial Irish ale).

slowrunner77 (9221) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 11, 2016
ThIs amber had a sweetish nose and flavor with a bit of citrus/orange and pine to go along with ample caramel. Mouth is weak like most lakefront beers Iíve had, but otherwise good.

It's okay...strong taste which is good. This brewery doesn't seem to excite me much.
