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.

On tap in a pint glass.
A- Light golden-amber color, 1f off-white head. Minimal lacing, lots of bubbles.
S-Lots of wet musty grains.
T- Just enough malt and a touch of floral hop to elevate it above a typical AAL.
M- Light and refreshing, well carbonated. Not enough, though.
O- When it was this or AAL on tap, it sufficed. Barely.

Had this while waiting for my flight at Fort Lauderdale airport. Not much of a nose, slight hints of citrus and malt. Appearance is a light, burnt orange, more transparent than I like in my beers. Mouthfeel is crisp, and the beer itself is rather watery. I'd almost compare it to a weak Sam Adams' Boston Lager, perhaps with a bit more sweetness and a slight citrus note that is mostly present in the aftertaste.
Overall, it seems like an attempt to create an accessible, yet tasty beer, but falls well short of the mark. Perhaps the only saving grace is that bars that would normally serve heineken, coors and that sort of ilk tend to also serve this. While it isn't by any means a good beer, it is still a craft beer.
