I've had this delicious beer many times, but never really sat down to review it. I finally decided to review the Riverwest Stein from Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee, WI. I had a 12oz bottle poured into a pint/nonic glass.
A - it has a very dark amber color to it, more of a dark red than what I'm used to for an amber lager. A nice slight white head at the top of the glass.
S - very balanced between the hops and the malt, it has a slight floral note it as well.
T - here is where the malt really comes through as well as the lager yeast versus an ale yeast. There is mainly a rich caramel note on the palate, and I get a hint of sweetness on the finish with an interesting hop bite at the end.
M - crisp, yet not too carbonated. Medium bodied, not too heavy, not too light.
O - I enjoyed this beer and the reviewing process. It gave me a better appreciation for what is really in this beer, a complex amber lager that should be enjoyed thoroughly.

3.5/5 rDev -7.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
LOOK: Pours a light brown or dirty copper color with a frothy head that has good retention. Some lace is left behind on the glass and the brew exhibits decent clarity.
SMELL: Bready, hoppy, soft caramel, malty. As it warms the malts come out more with more toffee, brown sugar and caramel.
TASTE: Firm malt notes with plenty of caramel and toffee, Bitterness is mild and the hop character is leafy, herbal and maybe a slight lemony citrus. Kind of has a noble thing going on. Agreeable amber lager that reminds me alot of an English pale ale for some reason, but this is far more bready.
FEEL: Medium bodied with a fuzzy mouthfeel from a high level of carbonation. Finishes with a bit of malt and bitterness rinsing the palate.
OVERALL: A good American Red Lager here from Lakefront that would not be out of place in my fridge. Malty, bready lager beer that drinks easy and has pretty solid flavors.

On tap at our hotel in Milwaukee.
The beer is dark copper with a mild haze and sports a half inch off off-white head. The aroma bring caramel malt, bread, grain, a hint of sweetness and mild alcohol. Perhaps a touch of citrus in the flavor with a light bitterness in the finish. Pretty drinkable, though the beer itself is rather bland and uneventful. Ok...
