3.1/5 rDev -9.4%
From a cool-looking blue bottle pours a nice, rich, golden amber colored liquid. Smallish head drops fast and with a lot of fizzy noise. Won't be any lace here, either.
Smell is overly hoppy for the style. Malt present but weak. A medicinal note shoves it way up the nostrils.
Taste is more well balanced. Malt and hops evenly vie for the tastebuds. A slight caramel note, maybe some light brown sugar.
Medium-bodied with an effervescense that is sharp upfront but mellows quickly. A coating on the palate and tongue leads to a thickening feeling in the throat. Not particularly good that. Overall, I am not impressed by the company that brought Gaspar's Porter to my lips.

A- Blue bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head.
S- The aroma is malty with some caramel and very mild hops in the aroma.
T- The taste like the aroma is malty up front with some sweetness coming in from the malt. There is some caramel flavors and just a touch if hops in the finish.
M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
O- Overall, not a bad Oktoberfest beer. Worth a try.

A: no head to speak of with my pour on an amber with golden hues clear body
S: toasted and caramel maltiness at the level of a barleywine with sweet, sour and tart notes.
T: malty and spicey with sweet corn and grains. little boozier in the finish than expected.
M: medium body and moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not too bad. Definitley malt forward in both aroma and flavor. Not quite spicey enough for the style though.

Poured from a 12oz bottle (that's quite blue) into a Sam Adams perfect pint.
This one's a red-orange with a tiny head that quickly recedes. Aroma is solidly lagery, with toasted malts and a decent amount of hoppiness. The taste is a good Marzen, this one remembers it's lager roots with a bit of a noble hop taste behind the toasted malts. There's also some graininess that isn't unpleasant. The mouthfeel is light and briskly carbonated, and the drinkability is good. A solid offering from Florida Beer Company, I'm excited to see what kind of new stuff they have in the pipeline.
