COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Milwaukee Genius Series 2: A true Wisconsin Lager - A freshly plowed acre of soft, rich soil. Without a single word it tells the story of a community, hard work, and a fierce dedication to the land. It recalls a time when neighbor looked after neighbor. And it reminds us that everything that we need we can get right from our good Wisconsin Earth. With this in mind, Lakefront set out to try something new, or old as it were - using all locally grown ingredients to create a distinctly Wisconsin beer. Ample amounts of Wisconsin grown 6-row malted barley give this unfiltered lager its hearty body and hazy straw color. Its malty sweetness is balanced with an elegant finish from Wisconsin grown Cascade hops. The result - a flavor that is signature to Wisconsin. So raise your bottle high, toast your neighbor, and taste the soul of Wisconsin.

It is easy to drink but it is missing something. Like seriously each sip I want to take a huge gulp searching for that extra flavor.

this beer has a very intense grainy taste that brings together a special type of taste that is unique to the beer. the hops are mild but delicious. the palate is very soft with a nice head.

Bottle pours orange gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of pineapple, peach, orange, caramel/biscuit, and light florals. Flavor is fruity, grassy, and somewhat spicy. I’m actually quite impressed by this as it destroys the majority of american lagers that i’ve had the pleasure of tasting. Overall body is moderate and the finish is balanced. They should really 6pk this badboy as it is definitely one of the best lakefront offerings hands down.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Draft pour on tap at the brewery (Milwaukee, WI). Pours a rich orange glowing hue, healthy haze, orange throughout, some deeper amber notes and a frothy brighter white head. Dies to a film, rings small. Aromas are a bit bland offering malty notes, dough and bread, touches of caramel, biscuits, and gentle toast. Some earthy mellow hops are subtle, fairly bland. Initial is mellow, lighter end of medium bodied, offering mellow toast and biscuits, a kiss of caramel sweetness, faint dryness, spice, and a touch of buttery essence. A bit odd. Mellow oranges, a touch of marmalade, more crusty bread, biscuits, and dough into the middle. Mellow spice, touches of yeast, and subtle dry earthy hops. Sweetness, oranges, and doughy malts into the back with a touch of abv. Meh, a bit bland and a bit big for it’s britches. A nice novelty though, I guess

CanIHave4Beers (3322) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Pours a hazy golden color with a big tight head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is herbal with a good clean maltiness, it smells nice but it’s sadly kind of faint smelling.

The flavor displays a nice herbal bitterness with some mild fruity hops. The beer has some odd cidery sweetness and is a bit hot in the finish. But there is a clean and crisp malt flavor that works really well with the hop character that make this far more enjoyable than not.

Grains and bread in aroma. The flavor grains, bread, citrus, fruit and a bit of alcohol. Apart from the alcohol, this was rather straight-forward, simple but good.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Dirty straw, moderate frothy white head, very nice lacing.   Strong grassy aroma, malty, a little mealy.   Noticeable alcohol, even some assertive pale fruit skin.   Big time grassiness on the tongue, malty, and thankfully not all that mealy.   Wow, this one really is meaty... fairly thick.   This is one big Lager!   Full bodied for sure.   Lingering heavy grassiness.   Clean beer, hefty Lager for sure.   I can dig this one!

iRate. Bottle courtesy of Chef Keenan. Pours a bright orange shade with a white lacing head.  Smells and tastes of pilsner malt, biscuits, grass, canned peaches, and marmalade. Dece.
