COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer is a special time in Grapevine, Texas filled with fun and family activities, festivals and all around good times. Every Friday night over the calm of Lake Grapevine, we celebrate the summer with fireworks and with our friends. The parks surrounding the lake are filled with onlookers and the lake strewn with boats and kayaks affording a breathtaking view of the fire-lit sky. And nothing hits the spot like Lakefire, a refreshingly hoppy American rye pale ale, spicy with a slightly sweet maltiness balanced by a smooth hop finish and subtle fruit aroma. The Lakefire is a unique pale ale and a GCB crowd favorite.

Gotta tell you. Tried this a few times, because I'm apparently too thick to figure things out the first time. This is a beer I really want to like, but just can't get there. Too bitter, to modest to intrigue me. Good luck to the next man.

Had a really pale finish for me. The taste isn't bad, but that finish is hard to get over. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: much maltier and sweeter than expected, but can may have been infected; Appearance: gushing white head that dissipates to nothing; Taste: follows nose without much rye or hops; Palate: light bodied; Overall: might try again if it were fresher.

16 oz Nonic pint draft at the Grapevine Craft Brewery Taproom in Grapevine, Texas. I had the dry hopped version. The pour is a slight haze orange golden with a well formed 1/2 inch white head. The aroma is fruit floral hop, spice rye and a soft resin. The Taste is fresh clean rye notes, floral spice and some of the fruit toward the back. The cracker malt is present, though below hop and rye. The palate is light bodied with soft carbonation and a mineral rye finish. Nice and fresh.

Taps clear golden with a thick and fine-bubbled eggshell head. Aroma is not strong, but promises fruity and rye character. Flavor is a little better, with more rye and some malt as well as pomme and citrus tones. Body and fizz are average. Go jump in the lake. ;)

Can @ LBB Elegante. Light smell of rye in aroma. Orange-amber color with white head, & a little lacing. Pleasant rye flavor, and balanced hops bitterness. Little more than med bodied. Overall, not a bad beer.

Lubiere (14240) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
A golden ale with a thin creamy lacing light mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with loads of butterscotch, grassy hops, OK. In mouth, a sweet lightly cloying caramel malt with with buttery notes, faint hops, boring. On tap at Ling & Louie, DFW.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2015 12oz. can. Light malt on the nose, clear medium amber color. Small head with attractive remaining lacing. Taste is a bit woody hops with faintly sweet maltiness, light carbonation and mouthfeel (not much bite from the rye). Maintains a little bitterness, overall pretty tasty and refreshing.
