    Do you mean Fischer? The french ale with the pop top?

    If so IMO if you get a bottle that hasn't been sitting around for decades its pretty good, not amazing, but alright, be warned though, i have had a couple really skunky bottles of that beer.

    Side note: If your a homebrewer, you can get a quality flip top bottle with half way decent beer in it for 3.50/4.00. The bottle on its own will cost you 2.50/3.00, so you are getting the beer inside for around a buck. Thus i have drank many a Fischer for the bottle, not the beer.

    Yes, Fischer, sorry. I see it at the store all the time. How would you describe it?

    I would say its a B- in my book. Nothing to write home about, and many other brews that are better in the same price range. Their amber is much better than the Fischer blond. I haven't had it in over a year, so i can't give you a really good description, might want to look it on RB (rate beer) or BA (beer advocate), my guess is they rate it low.

    Two big pro's to this beer:
    Price for quantity, $4 for over a pint
    Nice bottle

    Things to watch for: unrefrigerated dusty bottles. This beer does not sit on the shelf well, so the fresher the better.
