Had a sample of this during a "tour" of the brewery. Let me just say the taste of the beer was seriously improved after having a conversation with one of the smartest, most down to earth craft brewers I have ever met.
Pours clear golden brown, little white crown of head that settles slowly with time.
Smells malty and slightly toffee-roasted, mixed with the CO2, essentially covering all hop aroma
Mouthfeel is what really pulls for this one. It's the kind of beer that caused me (and the rest of us) to keep going back for more samples. Heavy enough to back some nice roasted malt flavor, light enough that it I feel almost refreshed drinking it.
Overall if you have access to this beer, grab it. You won't be disappointed.

Poured into a standard pint a clear amber with a 1/2 finger white head that held for awhile.Aromas seemed to be of a lager yeast with mild fruity notes,there seemed to be a tinge of grain and iron in there.Again lighter lager-like flavors with its grainy notes,a little dryer than what you expect for the style.A Vienna style beer?Like a Vienna lager?I'ts pretty average but Iam interested in what this really is...kinda.

this and a few other flying bison beers were just recenly released in bottles. bottled on date is blank, but im assuming its pretty fresh, just hit the shelves. 12oz. refridgerated bottled into a pint glass.
a fairly fast pour results in a good clear deep bronze, amber color, almost the color of rust, a skim 1/4 inch of creamy slightly off white head. lots of carbonation bubbles and just traces of lacing on the glass.
clean smelling. lager yeast with some toasted, biscuity grains in there. traces of caramel.
toasted biscuity grains, minerally lager yeast with just a hint of an extra little chocolate or something, hard to pinpoint, but a pleasent taste.
smooth, airy, light body. crisp, high carbonation.
truly a staple of buffalo beer. so easy drinking. craft and non craft drinkers alike can enjoy this, glad to see it in bottles. similar to yuengling.
edit: this is a lager, not an ale, despite what the picture says...

Compliments of Mike at Cole's, and fresh. Decent beer with Lots of malting, some above-average mouthfeel. Lots of carbonation. Brewery has produced better, drinkable nevertheless. No head or interest to look at, basic aroma, not complex.A good 1990's craft beer.
