I live in florida and only a few minutes from this brewer so I decided to give this beer a try.
Not impressed. It looks and smells pretty good , however, there is no flavor. I was disappointed at least. It seems like florida brewers only produce wheat or amber ales and their not succeeding at it. I would like to see a dark beer for once. Their 'Florida Lager' is pretty good though. Had it on tap at a local bar.

Good smelling beer. Beautiful appearance. Poured it and thought, wow, this will be a new favorite. Extremely disappointing. Very little taste, no hops, a little roasty bitterness. I bought a sixer and struggled to reach for another. Really would rather drink a BMC rather than this. A lot cheaper too. Basically this is an amber ale trying to be a light beer. I will be fair and end on a good note though. Decent aftertaste. Roasty and a little bitter.

My parents brought me back some booze from the sunshine state. Thanks mom and dad.

Amber with a quick to scurry head. Smells like cooled amber extract heavy wort. Tastes toastier than I was expecting. Aspirin finish.

Smoother, less grainy Yuengling? Probably better on a warm Florida beach than a cold Dorchester double decker.
