COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Tocobaga lived off the bounty of Tampa Bay hundreds of years before the arrival of the Spanish in the 1500’s. They were potters, tool makers and the only Florida natives to grow maize. The large platform mounds they built are still with us today, with one of the largest found near Old Tampa Bay in Safety Harbor, Florida. Climb to the top, and with a little imagination, you can see Tampa Bay as they did. Graphic design by Eric Swanson. Recipe by Tim Ogden.

Bottle. Deep amber/red body. Creamy ivory head, lasting. Aroma of toasted grain, raw grain, wood, grapefruit and resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, oily texture, moderate carbonation. Rich grain malts surrender to linger bitterness. Reminds of of the grain in Alpha King when it’s beyond its prime and the hops have started to fade. Red ale flavor in the finish. A rich beer with plenty of flavor.

Very complex for an amber. Looks like a normal amber in that it’s translucent brown and pretty thin of body. Flavor is more complex...light roast, some coffee, good bit of bitterness. Overall very drinkable yet very complex

tricyclist (1024) - Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Awesome amber ale from Cigar City... Pours hazy red with a mild white/off white head. Aroma is somewhat mild, decent hop character; but a great flavor! Rich hop character followed by a smooth caramel malt that’s just spot on. Drinks somewhat like an American Strong Ale with the strength of the hops, but the amber malts/caramel kinda changes that.

dresden (1109) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 24, 2012
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Amber pour with aroma of citrus and some bread and caramel. Tastes of a big grapefruit hop bite with a pretty good malt background. Pretty nice!
