look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pale gold color with a sizeable head and good lacing.

Somewhat run of the mill malty nose and typical lager smell and taste. Mouth feel is appropriate. Not a bad beer, but nothing really stands out.

Picked this up at a resort in Florida. Better than most of the stuff in the fridge, but well below some of the good lagers I have had.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear gold with amber tones. Light head and no lace discernible.

Nose is subtle toasty grains and yeast. Nothing special.

Flavor brings this one back, though, with an odd tinge of tropical fruit rounding out the toasted grains. Seems quite well-balanced and not over-malted as some lagers can be. I say, this one's solid and well worthy.

A - Clear red hue with a 1.5 finger white head. Leaves some laces as it gradually disappears.

S - Not too much on the nose, some piney hops, but it's faint.

T - Comes in with caramel and two row malts first, then is followed by more of a bittering hop presence, mostly Northern Brewers as the description states. Hops are moderate but still noticeable. Finishes slightly bitter. Balance is generally good.

M - Fairly light for the style, easy enough to drink multiple beers in one sitting. Not quite sessionable though.

O - A decent Vienna lager. Nice to try to see the local take on the style, and a good update to their Ybor Gold Amber Lager. You can find better takes on the style though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, no #freshbeer date.

Chilled haze on a honey colored body. Initial 2-3 finger head settles to a fat ring with pock marks and mild lacing. Aroma is of nutty malt mixed with grainy cereal. Flavor is much the same. Honest, clean with no flaws. Came expecting not much but it's alright.

Brown tinted amber, minimal head on the pour. Scent brings notes of sweet malt extract with faint stale hopping. Taste carries over from scent, lightly bitter and earthy, sweet but not overly flavorful. Medium bodied, some heft and lacking in carbonation. Nothing to see here folks...

Really couldn't distinguish this from one of my early homebrew recipes. These guys must be starting out in the craft business if this is their lager offering. Got 3 bottles as part of a monthly beer club. I guess I'll drink them...? Also got Key West Ale in the shipment which is also by Florida Beer. Hope it is an improvement.
