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.

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.

Tap. Mostly clear amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is a very mild caramel malt. Taste is terrific - hop profile with mild caramel malt. Nice brew.

Ferris (8042) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle - Bitter roasted malts. Clear amber with a thin head. Very malt forward, with enough bitterness to cut the cloying sweetness. Bit of spice and hops in the finish. Not my style, but I can appreciate this for what it is.

DuffMan (8041) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
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.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Bottle (nearly was a slow gusher). Pours with a hazy brownish golden body. Fading off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toast and bread. Light fruit notes. Flavor of fruits, toast, cardboard, diacetyl. Slight rotten fruit as well. A touch of toffee. Very carbonated mouthfeel.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear brighter orange with light swirly yeastage and a tall cap of creamy off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet breads and pils-type malts accented by light green fruits and some pine resin.. quite nice. The flavor had sweet, lightly-toasted caramel with lovely pine accents.. light fruits tail off the sides, leaving a sweet, rewarding feel through the finish. Light-medium bodied and predominantly sweet on the palate with great balance. Well done!

slowrunner77 (7207) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
"i was intrigued by the premise of this all malt amber lager, but it was another miss. slight fart character to the aroma (nice, no?). the flavor was unique, but not good enough to make up for the otherwise unimpressive beer."

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 17, 2002
Full malty and hoppy. The best of both worlds. Very well balanced and incredibly smooth. I agree that this is Lakefront’s best.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small disappearing off white head. The aroma is sweeter caramel malt, herbal hops, and some nuttiness. The flavor is sweet caramel malt, toasted bread, and a touch of spices. Medium mouthfeel and very smooth drinking. I like this one more than I thought I would.
