Tampa brewingHailing from southern Florida, this dark red beverage leaves an inviting impression, due to it’s beautiful dark red visuals. Pours a small bubbly head, it gives away aromas of fruit, tobacco and roasted malt. As far as taste goes, it has sweet notes of fig, a hint of hay and a mild bitter touch, provided by the Colombus hops herein. Greatly balanced and medium bodied, this is a beer that one definitely could come back for. There’s nothing extreme about it, but a comfortable, tasty beer that might be enjoyed on a summer night as well as later during the year, and I see this pairing well with food such as meats/poultry (if you’re into that, of course) as well as functioning as a more all-around versatile thirst-quencher.
