It just won silver at the Best Florida Beer Championships...under the Specialty category. Most people in my brew club who have tried Tocabaga said it was very close, but a little sweeter. I made version 2 this weekend and mashed at a slightly lower temp to see if that makes a difference.

I'm curious on how the 7 different type of hops work. Looking for a lighter more accessible Amber Red.

This is not a light red as far as ABV, but I feel it is flavorful & hoppy without being too bitter. If you enjoy the real Tocobaga Red, you should enjoy this one.
