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 riverís 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%

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 18, 2012
Golden light body. Honey, bagels and indeed somewhat creamy. But too moderate. Light sparkle. Somewhat bitter, active body and no leftover sugar. Disappointing. (On tap at the brewery)

On tap at the Black Squirrel in DC. Beautiful bright orange yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet, slightly grainy, a bit floral and grassy. Flavor is sweet, smooth, a hint of sharpness. This is a nice light refreshing beer. Tasty.

jbruner (2160) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with little head and slight lacing. Aroma is light, malty grain, with a touch of hops and sweetness. Taste is all of that, but slightly more assertive on the grains. Clean, well-balanced, and a smooth finish. Pretty nice light beer, best cream Iíve had.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Draft at St Mikes. Very clear pale straw with a white head. Citrus and strong grainy aspects with bubblegum and corn. Astringent bubblegum and corn, honey flavor with a awkward slightly bitter finish. Eh.

craftbeerdesign (2166) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2012
growler. pours a pale straw yellow with a 2+ finger white head. sweet nose with honey, bread notes, green apples and at times light vomit - not sure what is causing that. med soft creamy body with apples, citrus notes, bread, honey and smooth malts. lasting finish with sweet fruit notes, honey and grains. very drinkable on a hot day, but Iíd rather have an IPA.
