This relatively new brew from Florida Beer Co. presents a wonderfully aromatic character from its coppery depths. We found a surprisingly fruity impression on first sniff, with a hint of citrus acidity. Expect good caramel malt expression with a sweetly floral hop edge. Northern Brewer hops are known to contribute a bit of a fragrant, almost minty note, and that’s definitely in play here. It’s a very unique aroma, especially for a lager, reminiscent in some ways of piney notes but distinctly different. On the palate the caramel malts offer good depth of flavor to the core of this brew, while hops add an herbal edge. Look for the bitterness to come through light-to-moderate, balancing well with the malts which are restrained in their sweetness. Finishes nicely with just a bit of lingering hops and a hint of grain. Prost!

The Florida Beer Company has been among the leaders of Florida’s craft brewing renaissance.  Founded by Humberto Perez, who is a third generation brewer (his grandfather began one of Venezuela’s largest breweries back in 1929), the company has grown to feature several different beer brands, with each offering a sense of Floridian pride in their beer names a label art.  Perez’s goal has been to help bring overdue recognition to Florida’s growing better beer culture – a goal that’s quickly becoming a reality with each passing year.

FBC’s brewery is located in Melbourne, FL, mid-way down the state’s Atlantic coast.  Originally founded as Indian River Brewing Company by Bruce Holt and Jack Owen (as owner and brewmaster, respectively), the brewery eventually was bought by Perez who was able to keep the brewery in operation and providing great beer to the local community.  With every beer handcrafted with very little automated processes, the brewery remains committed to traditional microbrewing techniques for the creation of each batch of their tasty brews.
