COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A thirst-quenching American Pale Ale with a pleasurable hop aroma and taste. A chip off the same block as our Big Nose cypress knee wood spirit, Stump Knocker is a bit smaller, but he’s got the same hop headed attitude! Stump Knocker features late flavor and aroma hops, augmented with dry hopping and our unique hop filtering process as we transfer the fermented ale to conditioning tanks for carbonation and aging. These techniques produce a hop-centered ale with a crisp, balanced finish that will recharge your palate! Ingredients: American barley malts Centennial and Amarillo hops Production Targets: Original Gravity: 13 Brix IBUs: 35 Alcohol By Volume: 5.6%

Can from homer, amber pour, off white head that leaves a nice lacing pattern. Hop resin, stone fruit, solid malt base, faint caramel. Light to medium body with ample carbonation to keep it chugging down the track.

Brigadier (2915) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2014
12 ounce bottle
Thanks to homer321 for a new beer from central Florida. A nice pale ale would be the perfect fit on a humid summer afternoon while sitting on the patio. I am still not sure if I would go out of my way to visit Swamp Heads but at least I know they can put out something that is not just a pedestrian recipe.

Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated bronze body glimmers under a sheltered white head. Tall spring grass ready for the first cut of the season competes with blooming flowers. Both add a nice feel with undertones of creamy peaches.

Flavor / Palate - Mangoes, peaches, and resin coat the tongue with bright fruity flavors. Open and vibrant, the taste grows over the course of a few sips until the finish is like a layer of dust on the palate. A refreshing lawnmower beer is definitely what I would expect southern breweries to produce during the summer months.
