Another fine beer from Wisconsin. Although I've spent most of the summer sampling Wisconsin/Minn. IPA this is a nice refreshing high alcohol Red. Has a slight bitterness, but Lovely taste that is super smooth--this one is fine, fine, fine---well done, Lakefront!

This bomber was picked up in the '88' four-pack which I think is a fantastic idea. I hope it catches on - more breweries should be doing this.

Served cold into a pint glass, Fixed Gear is a very hazy redish brown color. The head is thick and it settles very slowly. What's left behind wouldn't look out of place on a tripel - huge rocky head with thick lacing all over the place. This is a great looking beer.

The aroma doesn't disappoint either. It's has a genuinely hoppy smell with nice grapefruit and other citrus. They must have really dry-hopped the crap out of it.

The flavor is excellent as well. I was not expecting this at all. This beer is one of the best reds I've had in a long time. Solid malt body with caramel and lightly toasted malt stands up to support a really well-hopped bitter middle. Smooth from begining to end with balance in spades.

Mouthfeel is medium-light plus in body and nicely carbonated. Easy drinking without a doubt.

Overall the surprise of 2011 so far. A great American red ale and one I would definately buy in a six-pack. Lets hope the other three bombers are even half as good as this.

Very smooth maltiness and a very nice caramel taste midway and through the finish. A little high in the booze dept so don't drink too many. :-) Also don't think this one too cold, I think. That hampers the caramel taste.
