12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a short-lived off-white head and crazy carbonation. Aroma is of fermented apple juice and hint of peppery hops. Body is medium and tangy. Taste is caramel malt and peppery hops. Finish is long and spicy. There is something wrong with this bottle.

A: The crown has some blistering under the plastic so this might be an old bottle. A medium copper with a slight haze. The light tan head dissipates after a minute, but that might be a result of this glass having gone through the dishwasher with the jet-dry, surfactants and all.

S: Moderate malt and dark fruit aromas of raisins and plums with moderate crust bread melanoidins. No hops and no alcohol aromas.

T: Moderately-strong malt flavor with moderate crusty bread and plum flavors. There is a moderately light hops bitterness that is about about even with the sweetness putting the balances in the middle. The finish is off dry and the aftertaste is of malt and dark bread crust. There are no signs of oxidation but the flavors seem flat.

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: A middle of the road bock with muted flavors that might be due to this being a little old. The balance between the bitterness and the malt sweetness is nice.

Dark reddish amber in the glass. Foam dissipates quite rapidly along with most of the carbonation. Aroma of old fruit crates left in the garage.

An overripe melon tossed in with the dishwater. Dosed with sweet vermouth. A touch of metal shaving. Maybe another splash of seawater with some seaweed. Ahhhh... perfect.

I can't believe how many years they've been making this swill and, to give Lakefront the benefit of the doubt, they still can't get the quality control figured out. Label says bottled in JAN in WK3, but they don't say what year. Purchased at Total Wine, thanks, guys.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look – red color, pretty clear, with about half a finger’s worth of creamy white foam that dissipates quickly.

Smell – hearty and malty in general. No particular notes of anything special, at least nothing very evident.

Taste – much like the smell, hearty and malty, with a tinsy bit of a bite in the late middle of the taste. Has almost an oatmeal type of quality to the taste. Interesting and nice.

Mouthfeel – very well-balanced. If anything, it leans a little on the creamy side.

Overall – nothing super special about this beer, at least nothing new or thought-provoking (that I can tell), but it is a very good-tasting beer overall.
