look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Just under a half finger of head on the pour which was lightly present while drinking. Color is light ruby red. Active carbonation is pretty much what it should be for the style.

Smell: Fresh tart cherries really pop on the front. Creamy, airy grains provide a solid base for the cherries to stand on. Some buttery yeast on the back end plays along well.

Taste: Sweet and tart cherries hit the palate first, not blasting on to the scene but slowly warming. Buttery malts and yeast grow on the body with some straw and grass. Lingering cloves touch on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Some tartness on the front yields to a pleasant yet simple lager body. Carbonation fits.

Overall: I saw this and it sounded like a quintessential summer brew. It pretty much hit right on with those expectations. The cherries hit in a completely authentic way. It is a simple yet well executed brew, well done Lakefront.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: A rusty cranberry colored body holds up a cream colored head that recedes to absolutely nothing. No lacing.

Aroma: Faint tart cherry, not much else.

Taste: Subtle malts underneath a tart cherry taste. Very simple, not any other flavors.

Mouthfeel: Watery.

Overall: The whole is better than all the parts, but this beer is so simple it's boring.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a soft, soapy head. Aroma is sweet malt and faint cherry. Radiant burnt umber color. Starts with a slight tartness and a nice, robust cherry flavor; the malt blends with the cherry to make for a cherry-pie like effect. The finish is lingering cherry and sweet malt.

I really like this one. It blends tart cherry and sweet malt in a wonderful way. It's got a great effervescent mouthfeel that is still smooth, too.

I don't get the mediocre reviews on this one. Maybe people just don't eat enough cherries to fully appreciate their flavor? I don't know what their frame of reference is, but this is a nice, solid, malty lager with cherries in it. What else were you expecting?
