This beer is gold to light gold with a fingernail of off white. The aroma is faint, but what I do detect is corn. I taste Vienna malt and faint German bittering hops. The mouth is light and quaffable.

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.
