not sure why folks are hating on this one so much, maybe the contract brewing or something, i dont know, but the beer isnt bad, and when placed in a macro context, its leagues better. a little heavy, corny, and slightly sweet, but thats the island sort of style, and i think it works in the florida context, this is sessionable for sure too. great golf course beer, cleans up a seafood palate, and has enough body and bubbles to be both refreshing and satisfying for a craft beer drinker. not watery, adjuncty, or metallic at all, all problems that plague lesser quality lagers. not sure what the negative side is, other than its a little sweet and a little boring, but this is far better than its been given credit for being, although i suppose the recipe may have underwent some changes over time. a fine florida lager in my opinion, not going to change the world, but its certainly better than any BMC beer ive had.

Another local brew I have tasted from my home state, FL, and I'm glad to say I wasn't disappointed.

The Native FL Lager pours out a beautiful shade of yellow - dark, yet clear, and even though it has little head and lacing, the color of the beer was simply great to look at. The lager had strong scents of citrus - primarily orange and lime, with a distant hint of tangerine. The mouthfeel was absolutely what I look for - little carbonation along with a smooth, silky feel. The taste followed along with the smell - I could definitely pull out the oranges and limes - really nice. And it had a good bodied tasted for a lager - not the normal watered down stuff you find from the big brewers. Overall, I enjoyed the beer - I really hoped I would and many times end up getting disappointed - but not this time.

If you drink, please don't drive, and if you drive, for cryin' out loud - don't drink...frui cervisiam consciam.
