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.

Had this during The Village Beer Merchant's 1 year anniversary sample fest, which of course the local guys were pooring a bit more than the 2ozs they were supposed to was more like a half glass, was told its intended to be a Vienna lager in the vein of Great lakes Elliot Ness but not as "big"
poored an orange amber a few bigger bubbles hung around to make a film around the edge of the glass
Smell was just sweet maltyness
taste is sweet and tart coming across in a very similar way like yogurt would
mouth feel was a thin to medium and a bit dry
Very sessionable just like pretty much everything else FB puts out

Limited release from Flying Bison to help raise funds for local bicycle parking within the city. Available in local establishments late, 2008. Consumed at Mr. Goodbar.

A: Very light in color for an amber, some darkness in tint form, little head to be found. No lacing.

S: Malt, some light citrus notes

T: Very dismal flavor. Little carbonation and flat on the outtake. A typical amber beer that is massed produced is mainly absorbed in this one.

M: None. Refreshing is best the quality.

D: Worth the price of admission for a pint. Think local.
