OVERALL RATING:


Sight: Bright blood orange body with a reddish, frothy head.

Smell: Oddly enough, it smells like a sweet lemon vinaigrette.

Flavor: The sweet lemon aroma translates into a lemony, Pine-sol-esque flavor. The malts make a final act appearance in the flavor of pastries. So, it kind of tastes like eating a sweet pastry that fell on a freshly cleaned floor.

Feel: It’s well carbonated, but the body is a little too thin for the style.

Concluding Remark:  Lakefront Brewery, hailing from the fine city of Milwaukee, puts out a bizarre  American-style Oktoberfest. The beer is more aggressive in flavor than traditional Oktoberfestbiers, as is to be expected of an American brewery. However, I have a hard time getting over the soapy, herbal note. It’s hard not to think of the head as a bucket of suds. Luckily I found this in a mixed six-pack, otherwise it would be taking up space in my refrigerator long after the Oktoberfest tents had been packed up for the year.
