COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Milwaukee Genius Series 1: Made with three styles of fresh American hops and fruity ale yeast that requires greater fermentation, it finishes with a dark amber appearance, spicy hop flavor and bold, malty backbone. The punch this potent brew packs reminds us all that when you want to make a point, you’re better off making a statement.

Aurelius (5488) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Perfumy, American brown ale aroma - lots of west coast hops and some toasty darker malts. Big stiff head on orange-brown beer. The label looks like something out of Guitar Hero. A little chemical, sweet, kumquats, vanilla, caramel. The flavor was trying too hard to cover up the ABV - it was like an amateur barleywine. Syrupy mouth, over-bittered finish.

3.4
Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Slightly hazy copper body, thin, clumping buff head. Toasty nose with burnt caramel notes, dusty, citrusy, and somewhat tart. Hoppy body with spicy, floral hops giving the beer a potpourri character, backed by toasty, dryish malts. Bitter, piney finish. Quite herbal and tannic.

PorterPounder (8226) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Tallahassee Fl. Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Dark copper-amber pour with a sticky off-white head. Sweet aroma with hints of spruce, mint and cotton candy. Flavor has an odd twang to it which reminds me a bit of homebrew funkiness. Some maple syrup, butterscotch, bitter chocolate but the funkiness permeates in the back end and dampens my enthusiasm for this one. Mouthfeel is thick - but in a cloying, clumpy kind of way. Expected much more.

Deep ruby red with a small tan head. Deep piney aroma with caramel malt. Flavor is a big hit of earthy, piney hops followed up with malty brown sugar sweetness. A great piney, malty finish with a smooth, full body.

Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Thanks to my bro for sharing this with me! Pours a light ruby color with medium off-white head that quickly fades leaving spots of lacing around the glass. Aroma is slight barnyard funk, light notes of dark fruit, caramel and light citrus hops. Taste is sweet malt, light cherry, and some earthy hopiness. Carbonation is mild and taste isn’t bad, but it seems everything was kind of thrown together in this one.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Pours a rich amber color with a medium frothy off-white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, butterscotch, with some earthy hops. Taste is about the same, with some toffee and earthy palate. Enjoyable and balanced.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, resin, pine, alcohol, caramel malt, and a little plastic. Poured dark copper with a hint of amber in color and a large, creamy, dense, rocky, tan head that lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of hops, resin, salt, pine, caramel malts, and toffee. Medium to full body. Smooth, creamy texture. Average carbonation. Resinous, slightly dry finish.

Bottle.Dark copper, not much of a head.Aroma a strong mix matl and hops. Thick and creamy to the palate. Flavor is a malt start, hop middle and a finish that is a mix of alcohol and spices. A very good beer.

badgerben (5282) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Big props to Skyview for bringing this back for us all! Dark copper color with a thin head. Plenty of citrus and caramel aroma. Much more of the same flavor. Slightly astringent bitterness towards the finish. Chewy and nearly bready.
