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%

Aurelius (4058) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2011
This was a nice little surprise while getting dragged to my wife’s 30th class reunion - on tap 5th Ave Tap Room. Clear, I think, bright with a small white head. A mild, but deft, bittering. The honey is not overdone - and for you non-Floridians out there, we Florida crackers do tend to go on about tupelo (which is a swamp kin of oak (sub-parenthesis: tupelo is also good for growing shiitake)) - it doesn’t crystalize, but orange blossom honey tastes better. Medium light body. Decent enough, especially for a dreadful style.

Tap at Cajun Café. Pours clear pale golden with a small white head leaving lace. Aroma is sweet malty honey and fruity. Flavor is malty bitter sweet fruity and honey. Finishes bitter sweet.

onceblind (3938) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
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.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 5, 2013
Very interesting, not so creamy but still interesting in that sense. Quite smooth and thick atthe same time. Easy to drink.

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 17, 2012
Draft: : Poured a clear white golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste is soft notes of grain and fruit. Very refreshing and reminds me of a good brew after a hard day’s work in the yard.

burg326 (3543) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2011
On draft that poured a pale golden color with aromas of cereal, corn, and a touch of floral hops. Flavors match the aroma with a touch of sweet honey in the aftertaste. Beer was crisp and an easy drinker.

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)

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a clear, pale, yellowish-golden color with a small, wispy head of off-white foam. A thin, soapy wash glazes the glass, breaking apart into small, scattered spots of lace. The aroma is simple, yet clean, showing a base of fresh cereal grain along with notes of creamed corn and flaked oats, with just a faint smattering of floral hops. Flavors follow right in line, again showing basic, clean grains, most prominently corn and cereal, with a touch of honey sweetness and a tiny dash of peppery petals. The body is on the thin side, yet balanced in terms of carbonation and crisp on the finish. Easy drinking, inoffensive little session brew.

Draft - Light grains and some honey. Pale gold with a thin white head. Light grains, light citrus and a bready grain finish. Light and refreshing.
