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.

On draft at CCB. I have had this beer a few times, and I am really growing to like it more and more. Pours a hazy light amber to copper color with off-white one finger head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of caramel, citrus, grapefruit, pine, light spice. Flavor is sweet and malty with notes of citrus, caramel, grapefruit, floral esters. Medium body with a floral hop finish. Another great offering from CCB.

Mad_Ferret (725) - SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2015
Can from Kihoskh. Ca 4 months old. Murky brownish red colour, just a hint of haze, big thick nicotine beige head that lace. Nice head, but apart from that I think it’s pretty ugly. Hoppy with sweet sticky caramel, marzipan, oranges, strawberry jam, licorice and mint. Sweet flavour with a herbal bitterness like black tea. Caramel, marzipan, berries and oranges. Medium body, soft carbonation, sticky texture. Pretty sweet and sticky with a bit of a rough bitterness. Maybe just a tad old.

Can. Best thing about it is the creamy, soft texture. Otherwise quite messy and underwhelming. Malt dominated with heavy marzipan notes.
