Look for a clear orange-golden color on the pour with an attractive off-white two-finger head from an aggressive pour. The aroma presents a somewhat doughy malt character with a moderate caramel note and a touch of hops. On the palate, expect a very nice balance between lightly toasty malts, a touch of caramel and honey sweetness, gentle citric hops, and a bitterness that seems a bit milder to us than 35 IBU but hangs on and lingers a bit in the finish with a mineralized impression, drying things out nicely. Try pairing this Floridian pale ale with spicy Jamaican jerk pork.
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.
