Fixed Gear is a big, bold American red ale. It pours a glaring crimson tone with a rocky white head and a brilliant floral-citrus aroma, thanks to an aggressive dry hopping. Its immodest, malty spine and intrepid caramel flavors blow in via gratuitous amounts of 2-row pale and dark caramel malts. A balanced citrus bite comes from Chinook and Cascade hops followed shortly by mild, fruity esters from the ale yeast. Since the opening of Northern Brewer Milwaukee in 2009, Lakefront Brewery has been a collaborator on a number of projects. This beer kit is the result of a close working relationship with Lakefront’s expert brewers.
