2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not sure about the native in this beer, yet another below average brew by FBC.
Pours golden/orange, white head.
Aroma is hoppy with some hints of pale malts.
Flavor, crisp mouthfeel, light spices , caramel finish and malts with some lingering citrus elements.
Not horrible, but nothing groundbreaking.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a hazy with small brown floaties typically carbonated . The aroma was mild and malty with a pommegranite note. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The weird flavor contained notes of fruit and was mildly lagerish. Not one that I would buy again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Generic looking label with the shape of the State of Florida on it. The cap as well. Pours golden yellow, big white fizzy head. Big malt aroma. Some hints of sawdust scent. A very nice hop aroma with hints of green peanuts. Flavor is a rich malt character. Sweet and bold. Definitely not what I’d expect from a Lager in the land of Pale Lagers. Very balanced. Finishes with a crisp hop bite. Medium bodied. A very well made Lager. Cheers.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brought up from Florida from Kayla: Pours a bright golden with crystal clear clarity. Big fluffy white head that’s quick to dissipate. Aroma of corn and grain. Taste is watery and thin. Corn again on the palate.

Bottle from TWSP, which stated this was from Indian River. Pours gold with nose of pale malt and hopcit. Tastes semi-sweet, caro syrupy malty, with mild hopcit and slight corny notes. Forgettable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from daknole. Pours a clear light orange gold with a medium thick white head. Big grainy lager aromas, with a touch of citrus. Smooth and medium bodied, a touch sweet, light flavors of grain and malt. Finishes with just a touch of bitterness. Easy drinking inoffensive lager, but nothing amazing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle thanks to Daknole and the locals trade. Hazy amber with a huge persistent white head. Nose is sharp like lager and sweet like Belgian. Honey and orange. Taste is light sharp citrus. A bit of tartness. Lemon. Maybe good on a hot day.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (Total Wine & More-Fort Myers, FL). The appearance was a large fizzy off-white head, hazy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma was sweet, spicy and fruity. The flavor was very sweet, somewhat sour and tart, fruity, spicy, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel was tingly and this beer is light-medium bodied. The end result is this beer is too sweet tasting for my liking as a little of the sweetness went a long for this rater. Suffice it to say, this is an easy-to-forget beer for me.
