COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Florida Beer Companys Sunshine State Pils is being brewed in the style of a Northern German Pils. These beers tend to have a higher more aggressive bitterness, slight mineral characteristic and very light body that can be described as clean, crisp and leaving a pleasant hop bitterness lingering on the palate. Between the use of German noble hops and our extra pale pils malt one can expected a light, approachable craft pilsner that is perfect for the Florida spring and summer seasons. ABV: 5.0% IBU: 42-45

Draft. This stuff actually tastes just like urquell, it seemed like they poured urquell. WOB atlanta. It is noble hoppy with semi-tasteful diacetyl.

Should be rated somewhat higher. Very good pilsner. Similar (and almost as good) to Sierra Nevada Nooner, not quite as hoppy finish. Considering there are so many mediocre pilsners out there, this was a refreshing find.

chinchill (4616) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2016
On tap at the brewery taproom. Pale golden body with good clarity and a durable white head. Bitter-sweet leans to the bitter side. Light hop and mild malt flavor. Feel: a bit thin but this works OK with the medium+ carbonation.

Clearwater, Fl - Total Wines - 12 oz bottle. Slight haze to the light golden pour, beady white head that fades after a while. Slight lemony bent to the aroma, some grainy accents. Flavor has a bready profile, some wort-like accents, a touch of saffron spiciness. Decent crispness to the mouthfeel,

rollinsr (622) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours clear straw colored with plentiful foamy white head. Aroma is very standard for the style with slightly tart doughy yeast esters. Flavor is somewhat unique with light banana notes dominating most of the flavor. The yeast flavors are still left on the palate however, once all is said and done.

A nice pilsner. Pretty bold for a light beer. Nice refreshing taste for those hot Florida days. Color me impressed.
