Pretty plain, eminently drinkable beer from one of my favorite bars in Milwaukee. Nice red color with basically no head. badgerben (5179) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2005
Dark red color with no head. Slight malt aroma. Dry grains in the taste with a decent malty overtone. Plain and inoffesnive. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2005
Brown/Red Coloring. Sweet Malt Aroma. Carbonated. Crisp and Lightly Dry Ending. Drinkable Lager balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - FEB 7, 2005
On tap @ The Nomad. Stopped in after the Lakefront tour. Great dark red lager that pours exactly that. Commercial description holds true to this one...not too malty and not too bitter, right in between. But it has some character and flavor to it unlike some other darker lagers I’ve tried. Better as it warms as some carmel and toffee flavors come through and also gives the hops their chance to shine. JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Enjoyed on tap outside the Nomad whilst watching people and listening to a guy play the harmonica. Red/orange or mahogany body. Light-brown cremy head. Light hoppiness in aroma is hard to detect. Overall taste is a sweet fruity bitterness with a touch of caramel and coffee. Bitterness seems to come from lemony hops. Also gives me some nice hoppy burps. Pretty good overall... better than I expected.

Dark brown color with well, brown highlights. No head save for a small ring of bubbles on top. The flavor focuses on malt sweetness, there’s caramel along with apricot and grape notes. Slightly chocolately finish. The aroma is tough to pin down, especially in this smokey bar. I’ll call it caramelly with a touch of fruit. In any event, the aroma certainly wasn’t jumping out of the glass.Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2003
This beer is probably supposed to be an easy-quaffing session beer but I think it’s too sticky sweet to be enjoyed in large quantities.
This amber beer, while not bad, is nothing special. I can see this being an inoffensive session beer, and I was able to drink mine quite quickly. If you take the tour at Lakefront Brewery, you'll get a coupon for a free Lakefront beer at one of four Milwaukee bars. In my opinion, its worth redeeming that coupon at the Nomad to try this beer, but I can't say I'd drink it regularly. TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2003
Well, I've done the Lakefront tour about a 100 times, but I never stopped at The Nomad to have this beer afterward (if you are familiar with Milwaukee bars, you know that Wolski's is the BEST bar in Milwaukee, and choosing between that and Nomad is no contest). So stopped in after the tour today and finally tried this. It's a beautiful little red. While Wolski's is still the coolest bar in Milwaukee, Nomad gained some after Lakefront points just for this beer. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 6, 2002
Clear dark amber orange color with a deep tan head that evaporates quite quickly. Dark caramel aroma. Alcohol aroma takes over as it warms. Flavors of caramel and slight toasty/nutty flavor. Finishes with a slight off bitter taste. Overall one of the better reds I have had. kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2002
Very watery, I cannot believe Lakefront made this beer.
