2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Wing Stop Restaurant - on tap. Medium golden pour, soft white head. Pretty neutral aroma - pick up some fresh lake water notes, a hint of citrus. Some creaminess in the flavor and noticeable saaz hoppiness. Some buttery notes round it out with a hint of spiciness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick and creamy. Surprise find at this little restaurnat that every once in a while has some new taps.

Draught (Busch Gardens, Tampa): Pours medium golden with a 1.5 inch white head that lasts 5 minutes. Aroma of a good skunky pils, with malt and saaz hops overpowering.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap in the Hospitality Room at the A-B Brewery, Jacksonville Florida. Clear golden yellow beer with a medium white head that fades after a short while. Light floral hop aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet pale malts, with a good hop flavor, then a clean finish. Fair amount of carbonation. Not spectacular or memorable, but certainly drinkable and decent.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Hurricanes in Orlando. Served in a frozen mug, so much of aroma was non existent. Nice golden color nonetheless. Nice roasted malt taste with a good balance of hops. Not bad, even after finding out it was an AB product.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Don’s in Metairie, LA. Served in a frozen mug. This beer was very refreshing, but just not much flavor. A good summer beer. It really tasted like much of the mass produced beer in the U.S. but worth a try.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated 7/14/07. On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Orlando. Appearance is crystal clear gold with high carbonation, and a small white film. No lacing noted. Aroma was somehwat flowery, but with a corny malt base. Flavor was basically the same. Thin and watery body, but it also had a creamy quality to it. Smooth finish. Easy drinking, but a typical macro corny malt base. Better than most AB products, but far from impressive.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft... Clear yellow lager with a mid-sized, frothy, white head that’s... zap!... gone in a flash. Sweet, grainy nose and flavor. Lightly hopped to cut into the sweetness and provide a tiny hop zing. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Short, crisp, refreshing finish. Went well with raw oysters and dolphin fish.

Too light and a little watery, I guess the sunky aroma turned my off, I ’m not much of a pilsner fan anyway
