When in Florida, drink as the Floridians do!

12 oz with a nice tropical label. Amber colored, egg white head.

Flat, generic grain smell, some hops spice. Minerals.

A little ginger-like spice -- the label specifically lists Pacific Northwest Cascade hops, but aside from a minor citrus note they taste more like Saaz. Pretty bland.

Thin body, moderately carbonated with coarse bubbles.

Below average, but at least it's an easy quaffer for the balcony facing the beach...

Poured amber copper, with a very thin white head, modest carbonation, and average lacing. Biscuit, yeast, and burned toast in the nose. The taste yielded nothing in the way of fruity, herbal, or bitter flavor, with another awkward bitter finish. No balance. Thin and underwhelming, I was shocked at how little flavor this beer had. Sorry, guys.

Brought this bottle back with me on the plane from Miami Beach this past summer. The bottle was leaking when I unpacked. We just poured it and there was some carbonation but a bit flat. No lace and very little head. Clear medium amber color. Not much hop in the nose. Mostly caramel malt. Body wasn't too bad, cept for the flatness. Not much here. eh.
