Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a thin off white head that recedes leaving some light lacing. Color is a rich, cloudy amber with abundant streaming carbonation.

Aroma: sweet caramel, bread dough, a hint of pine and citrus

Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, frothy, with a quite dry finish.

Flavor: caramel, butterscotch, raisins, toasted bread, with some herbal and citrus rind hops in the finish.

Overall: very well done and enjoyable. Should pair well with many foods.

Picked this one up at Super Sub and Six Pack in DuBois, PA while on trip. Never seen it and do not anything about Lakefront but figured worth a try. Very surprising, good looking beer that offers very little to the nose but oh so tasty, very good. Not sure if I will ever see this again but I hope so.

Serving: From a keg into plastic cup
Served: 26 July 2014

Appearance: Can't comment TOO much about this one since I unfortunately had to use an opaque plastic cup for this one. However, it poured with a great creamy beige head that actually left lacing down the side of the plastic cup, so that gets huge props.

Smell: Smelled light and 'beery', more or less, with a soft hint of some nutty and toffee malts and just the slightest herbal hoppy funk.

Taste: Really a great amber lager. Soft malt flavors add some nice character, as the malts bring hints of light nuttiness and soft caramel. Just enough hop presence to be noticeable, but barely so. The hops are mostly floral and slightly herbal. Good lager-like breadiness on the back end. Finishes sweet.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation makes this one superbly drinkable.

Overall: I put down three full solo cups of this one- it's a marvelously drinkable beer that paired excellent with the pulled pork barbecue that was being served at the party. Would highly recommend for craft lager lovers or new converts to craft beer, as it is an approachable style for all beer drinkers and one that really hits the style on the head. Would recommend.
