Bottle at Columbiana on the waterside in Tampa. Pours golden with small white head. Corn, straw, honey, light plae malt aroma. Flavor is light corn, sweet honey, straw, slightly dirty finish. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Overall not bad but pretty standard. Nothing amber about this though. Really more of a Helles style.

Had this at a Cuban restaurant and it went nicely with some salty sweet plantain chips. Definitely worth pairing with something, as on its own it was a little harsh and dirty. But the salt contrast made this plenty OK.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Amber gold color with some head that hangs out for a little bit, then gets bored and takes off.

I kind of understand why. Nose is pretty down the middle with a lot of grain and malt. Flavor is much the same. Not much going on here, but some ho him malt and grain, no real complexity and a carbonation that suits it.

Picked this up at a resort. Better than the ghastly Bud Light Lime offering, and fun to drink a local, but pretty uneventful. Much like that movie Trouble with the Curve.

App- Rich amber with some browns and golds. Bubbles float up and have a small called white head. Some decent cling.

Smell- Very malty and earthy and a bit of granular notes. Wasn't much here.

Taste- Stricky a average beer. Along the lines of SA lager or a Bud American Ale. Malty and lacking a punch.

Mouth- Medium body and medium carbonation. Little bitter, little earthy.

Drink- Just an average beer, nice to try a local but wouldn't seek this out.
