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.

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.

BOSSbrewer (2523) - 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 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. 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.

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.
