3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a translucent amber with a 5mm of off-white foam head that diminished quickly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation very high and fine. Aroma subtly of sweet caramel malt. Taste bland with some sweet caramel and a hint of hops bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Light, smooth, sweetness, a hint of bitterness but fairly bland.

"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."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is toast, caramel, juicy orange, and a touch of nuts. It pours a bright, clear amber color with a soft and creamy white head that retains a thick ring with a spattering of head skimming the surface. It leaves an ok lace. It’s a medium sweet with a light bitterness. The texture is oily with a medium body and a good amount of soft carbonation. It finishes with caramel, nuts, and orange blossoms and leaves a mild, malty, toasted bread aftertaste.
