3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark ruby amber with a thick diminishing off white head. Lightly floral aroma of caramel, dried fruit - apple and orange, and bread with a hint of spice. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. This could be a decent session beer. Flavor of dried fruit - apple, plum and orange, toasted bread, caramel and hints of spice and smoke. Nicely balanced. Good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours nice amber color with a scent of malt, caramel, and some yeast. taste is of carmel and roast. finish is smooth, but i don’t believe it is as good as it currently rates (81). I would accept this if it was given to me, but would probably not purchase again.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Explosively foamy out of the botle, in the exact manner of the Lakefront Cream City Pale Ale I recently rated. What little beer there was left in the bottle was moderately tasty, but I can see what others have meant about the Lakefront freshness problem. My Riverwest Stein was bottled in July (2002, presumably) and was purchased in Appleton, Wisconsin, so there really shouldn’t have been any problem with it. I’m disappointed in Lakefront so far; my apologies to my esteemed colleague muzzlehatch.
