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.

[Suggested Glassware: Lager Glass]

The pour was a lightly cloudy golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that reduced to a few puddles with a small collar and had some good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, grassy hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel and adjuncts.

The taste was a tad bitter and a touch acidic with a hint of caramel early on, and had a moderate adjunct presence and a pronounced bitterness towards the end. The flavor hung around for a little while with the harsh bitterness fading slowly as time elapsed.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and a lively carbonation.

Overall a brew with an awful lot of bitterness and not much else...

Had a pint of this on tap at Big City Tavern while in Fort Lauderdale for work.

Clear yellow. Effervescent. Dense foamy bright white head. Looks like a macro except for the size and thickness of the head.

Nose is gentle malt, not much else.

Taste is mild malt, corn/grain. Not much there. Slightly metallic.

Mouthfeel is fine.

Overall quite forgettable, but still good to see local beer in South Florida. I can see how this one would be popular with the masses.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Ap: Cloudy, yellow-Orange color. Modest carbonation, minimal lacing. Very pretty.

Ar: Citrusy grapefruit smell. Very faint but the citrus stands out.

Ta: Mild metallic aftertaste. Citrus notes hit early with a mild sense of bitter and orange rind flavor. The bitter citrus sits and lingers and becomes better with each taste.

Mf: Mild carbonation. Nothing super impressive. It has a mild refreshing presence.

Ov: Nothing super impressive, but very refreshing and much more appealing than the average Lager. I will definitely look for this again. Cheers!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Thick creamy head, close to bleached white, the microfoam dissolves quickly to a thin surface layer, not much lacing but enough that you can say it’s there. Bright orange to golden color, very clean and clear, so many bubbles it looks like a snow storm. Very sweet nose of sugar cane, honey, corn syrup, quite peppery too with a dried herbaceousness as well, solid lemon zest, surprisingly ripe peach and apricot fruit scents, overall sweet and agreeably simple. Light to medium-bodied, fluffed up from the downy soft carbonation, more adjunct like flavors of corn syrup, meal, honey, sweet spices like nutmeg or coriander. The white pepper element lower here while the grassiness makes for a drying finish. The apricot, peach, yellow apple fruit steady throughout. It is really unremarkable yet at the end of the day it still brings a smile to your face. Makes you not want to analyze it much.

I got this as an extra from Pittsky. Awesome trade Jesse!

A: Poured a fizzy, crystal clear yellow color ... the same color Stone Brewing Co. warns you against over and over again. The head was about 3 inches + that settled into a froth within seconds.

S: A bit of bready malt, but also a bit of sulphur.

T: Light bodied, but I guess this is a light lager right? Decent mild sour-dough bread taste, but the sweetness seemed bleached out.

M: Smooth for sure and very well carbonated. Malt presence was sufficient to help drowned out some of the sulphur.

D: Hey, it's still better than St. Paulie Girl!
