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%

Clear golden with a wee tight white foamy cap. Nose is biscuity but also grassy with a semisweet crisp blonde grain tone. Flavor is grainy sweet with a touch of corn and very light grassy hops. Earthy and a bit biscuity throughout.

adnielsen (9416) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours a clear, very, very light yellow appearance with a white head. Corny, lemon, a bit grainy, herbal aroma. A bit sweet and kind of high carbonation, but not all that hard to drink. Not a style I particularly care for, but this was ok.

Very interesting, not so creamy but still interesting in that sense. Quite smooth and thick atthe same time. Easy to drink.

On tap at Whole Foods Orlado. Pours a clear golden yellow with a white head and light aroma of grains. Taste is very light, not much taste but some grains, malt, and bread notes with a short finih. Not much flavor to enjoy

On tap at Whole Foods , Orlando, pours an off pale yellow gold color with a small head. Nose is sweet with creamy vanilla notes. Taste is grainy and bland and not full of flavor. Finishes the same, rather boring , light and tasteless. Quaff Score 4 / 10

If I new this beer came from Gainesville, Florida, worst college town in America, I would have avoided it like the plague. Pours super pale with a white head. Has a barely there lemony scent. Taste is light and grassy. Supercarbonated, most likely to hide its utter mediocrity. Draft - Owl Cafe Tap Room - Apalachicola, FL
