COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Light and refreshing, yet busting with flavor. We add Florida Tupelo honey to a traditional cream ale, and just a touch of hops, to update this American classic. This is what a light beer should bee! Tupelo honey is produced from the tupelo gum tree which grows profusely along the Chipola and Apalachicola rivers of northwest Florida. Here in the river swamps, bees are placed on elevated platforms along the river’s edge or on floating barges; the bees fan out through the surrounding Tupelo-blossom-laden swamps during April and May and return with their precious treasure. This river valley is the only place in the world where Tupelo Honey is produced commercially. Tupelo Honey is considered to be the finest quality honey in the world and is the only variety certified for varietal purity. It costs a bit more, but we think you will find that it produces a crisp light beer that rivals the finest lagers in the world. Ingredients: American barley malts and corn Florida Tupelo Honey New Zealand organic Hallertau hops Production Targets: Original Gravity: 14 Brix IBUs: 17.9 Alcohol By Volume: 5.9%

on tap @ Swamp Head / Gainesville FL --- Clear light golden amber, white full-bodied rim head, streaks of lace. Taste is somewhat sweet malt that adds carbonation on the swallow, turning to light hops as it enters the finish. Malt shows again at the very end. Light, but enjoyable.

b3shine (6275) - Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Draft to taster at Tomoka. Looks solid; a transparent lighter gold with white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of mild grain with a bit of hops and a touch of honey. Tastes like it smells with a bit more hops and honey. Average on the palate with a medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad.

Draft. Lightly spicey nose. Some bready notes. Pours a fairly clear light yellow with a medium sized white head, packed with tiny bubbles. Taste is quenching with a note of honey and citrus. Like light oranges. Very quenching after a long day.
