From the other reviews I read and being a fan of the red/Amber family, I think I may have gotten an "off" batch. Instead of a crisp hoppy flavor, I get an almost soapy and flat taste. Enjoyed the other Lakefront brews from the sample pack, so I may have to try this one alone.

A: Pours a hazy copper that turns to mahogany when shadowed. A two-finger ecru head collapses into lumps and leaves just a bit of lacing.

S: A soapy cardboard scent fills the air around the glass during the pour - not a good start. A good whiff reveals juniper hops that are less stale and slightly more citrus than the first scent indicated. A bready, caramel malt emerges as the beer warms.

T: A mouth full of hops, somewhat offset by a good dose of nutty, roasted malt. Overall, pretty straightforward: lots of hops. Slightly sweet, with a bitter finish.

M: Medium-bodied, medium astringency, dry finish.

Personally, I don't prefer aggressively hoppy reds, though this is by no means a beer I'd pour out. It would be better if it found a better balance between malt and hop. Would probably not buy again.
