On tap at the original gumbys in Gainesville. Floral aroma. Merky brown. Unfortunately this beer is a little under carbonated. Rating from memory.

Can from homer, amber pour, off white head that leaves a nice lacing pattern. Hop resin, stone fruit, solid malt base, faint caramel. Light to medium body with ample carbonation to keep it chugging down the track.

12 ounce bottle
Thanks to homer321 for a new beer from central Florida. A nice pale ale would be the perfect fit on a humid summer afternoon while sitting on the patio. I am still not sure if I would go out of my way to visit Swamp Heads but at least I know they can put out something that is not just a pedestrian recipe.
Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated bronze body glimmers under a sheltered white head. Tall spring grass ready for the first cut of the season competes with blooming flowers. Both add a nice feel with undertones of creamy peaches.
Flavor / Palate - Mangoes, peaches, and resin coat the tongue with bright fruity flavors. Open and vibrant, the taste grows over the course of a few sips until the finish is like a layer of dust on the palate. A refreshing lawnmower beer is definitely what I would expect southern breweries to produce during the summer months.

Draft - Floral hops with a caramel backbone. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Orange and caramel with a bit of resin and a dry finish. Dry resin bitterness in the finish is pretty big.

growler from the brewery. Dark golden in color with spare white head. Mostly citrus aroma. Citrusy hop flavor. Similar to Big Nose IPA, but a bit more subtle.

Fucken can @ home, courtesy of DrewFace. Cheers Flo Rida bro! Pours a deep burnt orange appearance with a tan head. Bready caramel, burnt malty, light butterscotch, caramelized sugary, bland hoppy aroma. Burnt, a touch smoky malty, roasted leaves, herbal light citrusy flavor. Tastes old and shitty.
