Fixed Gear American Red Ale from Lakefront Brewery

By Rick


The label of Milwaukee’s Lakefront Brewery (www.lakefrontbrewery.com)  Fixed Gear American Red Ale features a drawing with a unique theme and variation on a bicycle.  Balance is important in cycling- as well as in a good beer.

Fixed Gear pours a reddish-brown hue with a frothy head.  This brew left a very nice lacing throughout my sampling!  Its balance was readily apparent with aromatic hints of both hops and malts.  The balance continues throughout the mouthfeel and finish.  This is a very satisfying  (6.8% ABV) beer!

Don and I had just performed with our band at a local arts festival.  We had worked up a thirst and Fixed Gear was the perfect match for our post-concert pizza and salty snacks!

Nothing like balancing our business and pleasure too!
