COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
True Evel Daredevil Ale represents the bold and fearless spirit of legendary daredevil and icon, Evel Knievel. Unrelenting amounts of two-row pale malt give True Evel a body as strong and resilient as Evel himself. The intrepid red tone comes from generous amounts of roasted malts, adding a unique malty sweetness. Saaz and Mount Hood hop are added for a distinctly clean finish. The taste of True Evel embodies an Evel Knievel performance: a brief thrill becomes a memorable experience.

One of the worst beers I have had from Lakefront. Lightly sweet malt, but virtually no flavor or aroma but just some grain.

crossovert (6970) - Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2011
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.

nuplastikk (4291) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2011
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.
