No idea what Tampa style lager means, but this is a clean finishing lager with some malty sweetness. A bit of a hop profile, overall enjoyable. Recommended

Picked up a growler of this. Nice easy drinking lager. Significantly more taste and flavor than an AAL. Light to moderate carbonation. It may look like an AAL but I think it is quite a bit better.

Pours yellow in color with a one inch white head that faded quickly and left a ring of lacing. Smells of biscuity malts and hops. Taste follows the nose with a non-fruity sweetness to it and a mild spice quality. Well carbonated, light bodied, crisp.
