COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
the name given a new hoppy, low-alcohol pale ale from the minds of Brewmeister John Pinkerton and his talented assistant, Chris Lady, at Moon River Brewing Company. While Savannahfest remains the microbrewery’s flagship, it’s apparent that Slow-vannah and its session beer characteristics could propel it into become a leading, year-round offering.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear pale amber-gold color with a thin off-white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and caramel malt. Light-bodied and crisp with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average all around.

Scopey (6180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Tap at Moon River. It pours pale golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is crisp, grain, floral, hay and pithy citrus. The taste is clean, crisp, floral, straw, wood, light citrus and biscuit with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, easy-going session beer. Refreshing

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
5/22/13. On tap at the brewery. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Light hop character with some caramel and bready malts. Light, thin flavor, some caramel and light hops, but to be expected for a session pale ale. Not too bad.

TaktikMTL (5628) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2009
En fût. Verre de dégustation directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur d’agrumes avec une pointe de pêche. Apparence: La couleur est cuivrée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût d’agrumes avec une pointe de caramel fruité. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût houblonné. (Rating #2256)

PorterPounder (5344) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Pint, on tap at the brewpub in Savannah. Light orange pour, nice white head, solid lacing. Slight hint of floral notes in the aroma - fresh. Slight minty notes in the flavor with a slight citrus bent. Nothing really jumps out - just smooth drinking and a good meal accompaniment. Clean, even mouthfeel.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Hazy orange-copper with slim, thick tan head. Fruity aroma is peach and paw paw. Soft mouthfeel and low carbonation. Thin body but lingering grassy hop finish. Not my favorite in the lineup but pretty good, easy going hopped pale.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 2, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and malty. The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow mild malty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of wheat hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.
