Although this is another decent offering from Florida Beer Company, this American Lager isn’t really different or more special than any other beer. On the pour, it’s a nice looking beer: beautiful gold, a nice-sized head, and good carbonation. With a sharp, spicy scent, I’m anticipating a hoppy taste, and to that end it doesn’t disappoint. The beer almost explodes in a sparkly burst in the front of the mouth. The hops don’t make the beer incredibly bitter, but it does have a sharper taste. Then the malt tries to take over in the middle of the mouth, where you’ll get a slight creamy feel. Unfortunately, that’s where the taste dies, leaving not much for the back end feel. In fact, most of the taste is in the front end, which is a little disappointing, and overall, makes for a beer that is fairly ordinary.
