COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich amber color and caramel flavor of this beer are derived from the generous amount of caramel malt in our recipe, with just a dash of roasted unmalted barley for a subtle toasted flavor in the background. The sweetness, body, and mouth feel tell you that this is an all-malt beer. The finish has a balanced edge of Willamen and Casade hoppiness which cuts through the malty character, leaving a clean palate which beckons for more. Note: the terminology of "stein" refers to the appropriate drinking vessel and not to a type of beer made with hot rocks.

A good beer. Not the greatest one I’ve had, but I’d drink it again. It is Fixed Gear. American Red Ale

Dacrza (631) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2013
DATE TASTED: November 16, 2013... GLASSWARE: Sam Adams lager glass... OCCASION: TWO rates in one night--feeling good!... APPEARANCE: solid orange amber body; pours a Santa’s beard-white head, frothy and thick; lacing is sporadic but significant... AROMA: malty and confidently so...pleasant hint of caramel, candied sugars and faint hints of floral hops... PALATE: somewhat smooth; simply a slick, aptly medium-bodied presence with a lingering aftertaste...TASTE: indeed malty; borderline dunkel/doppelbock base; flat, singular effect...OVERALL: caught off-guard by the five-finger malt punch this brew delivers; liking the eight-beer mix pack Lakefront puts out more and more; not a standout but one that pairs well with rainy November nights like this...

10/10/13 the LAST bottle of the 8 pack bought for the Poconos 2 weeks ago and my favorite out of the pack. Dark amber color with a very thin head. Aroma is lots of malt and caramel. Flavor is a little sweet almost octoberfest like. Good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rosenbergh (8548) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Lakefront Brewery) Milwaukee, WI.
Clear copper colour with a small off-white head. Mild sweet toffee, malt and banana in the aroma. The flavour is quite easy but there’s nothing wrong with it. Dryish malt, banana sweetness and mild hoppy bitterness. I don’t know what the banana is doing here. Drinkable, forgettable.

Foxbush (1487) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2015 12 oz bottle Another beer tasted at a Packer game tailgate. The lager poured a deep copper color with a beige head. The aroma was of caramel malts. This lager had a rich taste of caramel and peach. The medium body lager had average carbonation. This was one of the best beers tasted at the tailgate. The finish was smooth with no bitterness.

DSG (8423) - Tel Aviv, - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Clear amber. Weak aroma with malt, a bit of caramel, some oxidation and something weird. Sweetish flavor with a bit of malt and caramel, honey-ish oxidation notes and a drier finish with faint bitterness. Rather light-bodied.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2013
Draught samples + full pints@source during & after brewery tour 23viii13. Better than expected, stein-by-name only Vienna lager with full and round fruity malts qualities, grain character, a smooth, "fat" yet clean palate and just enough earthy-floral hops to balance those out.
