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.

Draft @ Millertime in MKE. Light hoppy aroma. Brownish copper color. Not sweet, but a nice caramel malt flavor. Nice thick head that stayed for a while. Nice, fill body. Good beer overall.

Red amber color with small head, unfortunately served in a frosted chalice. Slick caramel brew, light residual sugars, a bit fruity, estery, correct bitterness.
Decent.

simonblaine (270) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours mahogany, medium head. Aroma is of yeast, malt, fruit. Taste is initially malty, piney and hoppy, then it is slightly sweet and fruity. Itís interesting, feels "thick" on the palate, syrupy, but isnít viscous like a syrup. It is well carbonated. Not too bad. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium dark brown-red with small tan head. Aroma is mostly malty, with a bit of piney hops. Medium body with light carbonation. Flavor is lightly roasted but sweet malts and hops are there too providing mostly a dry finish. Pretty good.

bottle - Pours amber with many suspended yeast particles and a light tan head. The aroma is more toward caramel malt with some mild hops. It tastes of caramel malt and light, resinous hops. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance Ė The beer pours a deep reddish-amber color with an almost none existent tiny foam head. The head fades almost instantly leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell Ė The aroma of the beer is mostly of a caramel nature with some other sweeter and sugary aromas of brown sugar and molasses. Other aromas of a lightly toasted bread and a bit of an earthy and pine hop are there as well, producing overall a well-rounded smell. Taste Ė The taste begins with a clean, lightly toasted bread flavor with a rather decent level of caramel sweetness. The caramel is joined by some brown sugar as the taste advances with the roast letting up a bit. All the while, some hop flavors start working their way onto the tongue with some flavors of an earthy and herbal nature coming to the tongue. With a little bit of tangerine and some light pine also joining the flavor at the end, a rather smooth, moderately sweet red flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of both its thickness and carbonation. Both are rather nice for the easy drinking feel of the brew all while upholding the sweeter and lightly hopped flavors nicely. Overall Ė Very easy drinking but with a good level of flavor and complexity. A rather nice red overall.
