3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle pours clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is sweet with corn as well as grainy malts to go along with a hint of spicy hops, earthy hops and faint floral. The taste is pretty fresh with corn and grains followed by some sugary sweetness, a dash of spicy hops and then fresh grainy cereal. This thankfully does not head into syrupy over sweetness, floral and skunk like the vast majority of the brews contained within this style. I can see this being a tasty treat during hot Florida weather (about 9 months a year).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a clear gold with a creamy white head. Nose is light malt, corn sweetness, and a hop or three. Flavor is a crisp light lager- sweetness with a hop or two and a hint of lager. Crisp, light-bodied and ok overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from State Theater (St. Pete, FL). Pours a clear golden yellow color with a white head. Slightly sweet and malty aroma. The flavor is a little fruitier than most lagers. Not bad, but not great either.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Comes across like a shandy, lemon. Weird label on this bottle. Aroma is slag and gramma’s old hair tonic. Looks like a pale lager. First taste is interesting and almost pleasing. Lemony at times. No detectable bitterness. Decent amounts of CO2. Almost has a carbonated lemonade feel about it. Seems a little artificial at times. Not sure if this could be sessionable but glad to have had the chance to try it.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is about what I expected from the style and brewer. It’s an adjunct lager with a decent amount of malt and a subtle amount of grass hops. The appearance is golden with a medium head. The taste is malty and not bad, just uninteresting. The palate is smooth with a nice malty aftertaste. The beer overall is quite drinkable just blah.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle-pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is grain/corn-bready, maybe lime. Taste is grain/corn-bready, maybe lime/hint of grassy bittering hops. Lawnmower comes to mind.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: The beer pours a clear, pale yellow color with a white head on top.
S: Absolutely dominated by corn. More than anything, this smells like corn flakes. Plenty of table sugar aroma to it as well as some light fruity esters and yeast.
T: Like the nose, there’s a heavy corn presence. More corn flakes and sweet, sugary flavors with a hint of garbage. Light bread and malt flavor is also present.
M: Light in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: It doesn’t exactly live up to the "coolest beer in town" billing on the label, but it could have been worse.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
dorée claire, mousse blanche.
arôme et goût, mais, citron, goût de savonnette, douce au palais avec ce qui parait être du malt pilsner/cara, fin garde cette amertume de houblon type Saaz qui n’est pas trop plaisante et rappelle bcp des ces lager allemandes.
C’est rafraîchissant mais comme bcp de bières de FBC ca reste bien médiocre.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours your run of the mill golden lager color with a decent white head. Fair amount of carbonation. Aromas of malt, corn, and bread to the nose. A slightly creamy finish, but still tingly due to the carbonation. Light bodied. Nothing special.
