1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
One of the worst beers I have had from Lakefront. Lightly sweet malt, but virtually no flavor or aroma but just some grain.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
There is a subtle hoppiness, but it is rather sweet, and not much else. It seems like a 1 off for a special event and Lakefront didn’t take too much time in making the recipe perfect.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle direct from the brewery. Unfiltered amber-brown color. Big foamy head. Standard amber aroma. Watery body, typical of Lakefront product. Really just screams bland. Some decent malt tones, but a super conservative hop bill keeps it standard at best. Pretty decent, above par for Lakefront, below par for a craft brew. Bland, super faint hoppy nothingness.
