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%

Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
A hazed blonde ale with a thin superlacing white head. A sweet funky mash aroma, a bit spoiled , a bit of spices, cinnamon. In mouth, a rather light milkey and creamy beer with fruity esters, light hops, a bit boring. On tap at Sarasota Brewing Co., Jan. 3 2011.

Lightly sweet and crisp cream ale. Slightly flowery, very easy to drink, and I would not mind drinking this out of a can while outdoors.

PorterPounder (5696) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - Momo’s Pizza - on tap. Pours alight golden with little to no head. Brief hint of mint and fruit cocktail aroma. Flavor is mellow with some pears. light graininess, a hint of fruit cocktail and a hint of honey in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice bit of spritziness to it which sits nice.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Yellow, mostly clear, nice dense white head. Clean, sightly corny aroma. Maybe a little grassy, was well. Dryish palate, some corn, some grass. Not bad.

DialSquare (2906) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Tap from Momos in Tallahassee. Rating is after the fact - so sparse on details. Crisp thin bodied - easy drinking. Grain, honey and seemed like pepper in the finish. Little bit of tropical fruit. Fairly thin overall - but pleasant enough on a hot Florida day. Go Gators.

6/19/10. On tap in a pint glass. Clear golden pour with a fuzzy yellow head. The aroma is grainy and a bit pukey, but overall quite light. The flavor is big corn chips with a hint of sweet and plenty of dryness. Meh.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Draft @ Oldsmar Tap House...poured one of the most intriguing colors I’ve ever seen, a pale pink-tinged golden color which was most enticing. Nose had hints of some mild grain with a touch of honey. Heavily carbonated which seemed to work quite well with the brew....flavors consisted of very light toasted grains, honey and some odd berry-like notes. Good, sessionable brew.
