Where would we be without our home state?Celebrating 167 years of statehood, La Florida officially joined the union in 1845. Hence the name for our All-American Pilsner.

Light in color and balanced in taste, the 1845 deserves it’s own flag. According to the history books, the Governor of Florida signed our statehood papers on the steps of the Capitol.

We’re gonna bet the assembled group celebrated with a special kind of Florida beer, if only 1845 had been available on tap!

The smooth, crisp taste is as American as baseball and apple pie, with a little something special just from Florida thrown in.

We might not have a lone star or a TV show about a shoreline, but we do have our own brand of Florida pride. And y’all, we can drink ours.

Consumed at brewery March 10th, 2012.

Beer is very clear light yellow with a small white foamy head..

Aroma is slightly dank and ever so slightly sweet.

Flavor is a little grainy up front (husky and corny), lightly malty in the middle (pale and/or pilsner, I think) with more bitterness on the finish than expected. The bitterness lingers for quite some time after the swallow.

Tingly on the tongue and slightly dry.

This is a well-executed example of a style I do not particularly care for. Worth trying.
