My father in law bought an assorted 6 pack for Christmas to share with me and this was one of those beers. I had never had any of Lakefront's offerings before so this was definitely a treat for me.

This beer pours a brilliant shade of amber that seems to glow with light carbonation easily visible. The head climbs with just a bit of work and reaches 2 fingers in height with a thick frothy appearance that dissipates ultra slowly. The head is off-white in color. 4/5 The aroma is very much on the sweet/malty side of things but is somewhat subdued. The malt is characterized by caramel, sweet Hawaiian bread, light toast, and grain. Just a hint of light fruitiness comes through as well. The hops are grassy in nature and balance out the sweetness just a bit. 3.5/5 The flavor is quite strong, especially for this style, but not overpowering. The balance leans toward sweet but there is a nice bitter counterpoint from the grassy hops. The malt really focuses on the caramel and sweet bready nature while being backed up with a hint of toast and grain. The malt really does its job well here and provides a really great tasting experience, albeit a bit simple (but that's ok). Bitterness is light and does not linger after swallowing. 4.25/5 This is a medium bodied amber that leans a bit toward light bodied with faint carbonation up front that transitions into a creamy and slick mouthfeel throughout the rest of the profile. There is really no drying sensation to this beer and no lingering mouthfeel. 4.25/5 Although the aroma is somewhat subdued, the flavor easily makes up for that flaw. This is a really flavorful amber that pucks a malty punch and leaves you begging for more. I will definitely be revisiting this beer in the future. 4/5
