2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from bottle. Pours a pretty gold with hints of red, but this isn’t what I’d call an amber color. Head is maybe 1 1/2 fingers, but quickly dissipates to nothing, leaving no lacing. Aroma is a bit of toffee and a hint of hop, but pretty minimal. Taste starts as a traditional amber flavor - warm malt with hints of toffee and a touch of coffee, but then there is a very strange after taste with a bitter tang. I would normally associate that flavor with an off batch of extract beer. The after taste ruined what would have already been a meh beer.

Bottled at several key largo watering holes. Very generic, a bit on the spritzy side, but then again the locations made it seem quite drinkable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber with a thin foamy cap head. The nose is earthy and nutty, a touch of plantain and rustic caramel. Flavor is big on creamy earthy nuttiness, a good dose of toast, and a bready sweet toffee finish. Pleasant, simplistic and clean.

Aroma is subdued. Pours a clear golden amber with a white, none-lasting, head and no lacing. The taste caramel with a hoppy finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, while not high on the taste side, it was crisp and refreshing.

This pours a soft golden light amber with one finger of 1-2 fingers of off white head. Nose is meh, soft bready malt with some herbal hops, and toasted grain showing. Flavor leans toasted and lightly dextrinous malt profile. Slightly grainy with some caramel malt sweetness. Medium bodied.
