Noted that this beer tasted better if it stayed chilled. This beer had excellent color and a good aroma. Much more powerful when warmed.

Also noted that this beer could turn a little skunky if chllied then warmed and chilled again.

Overall a nice fresh beer.

Pours a long lasting sticky, lacy just off white head. Clear amber/gold liquid. Sweet and lightly fruity/spicy maltiness with abundant hoppy nose. Taste is lightly biscuity, some sweetness and solid hop bitterness. Finishes clean with a long lasting bitterness, nicely made

This Floridian lager is light amber in color with an off-white foamy head. The head dissipates rather quickly and leaves behind some thin lace. Nice balanced aroma of malt and hops. The medium malt body possesses some caramel-like sweetness. The light citrusy hops make for a balanced brew. Smooth and drinkable with a moderately sweet apple pectin taste. Odd but good.

Had this on tap a month ago at a bar in Tampa,nothin great.Had decnet yellow color with medium head that was gone quickly.Smelled a little sour for a lager but not overpowering.Taste was malty with some bread like flavors.Easy to drink I would guess in the Florida heat.Nothin spectacular.
