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.

Full malty and hoppy. The best of both worlds. Very well balanced and incredibly smooth. I agree that this is Lakefront’s best.

Bottle. Medium amber with a light golden head. Aroma is lightly toasty caramel. Flavour is the same, with a metallic bitterness in the finish that I didn’t dig.

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Not a whole lot going on, and rather metallic in the finish, but ok.

DSG (6351) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - 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.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2006
Bottle: Orangish amber, moderate off-white head, foamy, spotty lacing. very light carbonation.   Bready caramel aroma, light citrus oddly enough.   Moderate malty character, slightly bready, otherwise fairly grainy.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Grainy finish, malty, but not as smooth as others.   Still leaves me wanting some Eliot Ness.   Thanks JCapriotti for the freebie!
