Lakefront Bridge Burner is a "special reserve" ale that comes in a 22oz bomber, brewed to commemorate the burning of a bridge between two towns that ultimately became Milwaukee. It's a pretty flavorful ale, packed with 3 types of hops. The IBU is 45, hardly as hoppy as some ales, but they definitely stand out. It's nicely aromatic as well. There is a definite sweetness in there, some maltiness trying to fight through the hops. All of this is comes with an 8% abv, which makes it an ideal late fall, early winter beer. It kind of makes me wish I had waited a couple months for cooler weather before drinking it.
