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%

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.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2011

DialSquare (2756) - 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.

On draft at Datz. Very light in color, slight golden brown tints with a very clear transparent center. Aroma is slightly sweet with hints of honey. Flavor is on the same lines with the aroma, slightly sweet with honey and malts. Very sessionable.

jbruner (2356) - 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 I’ve had.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2010
draft @ redlight redlight. Honey and cereal grain notes, hints of spice. Pours clear yellow with a fluffy white head. Very smooth and light, but there is a good amount of flavor, honey malts, corn, with a dry grassy finish. I dig it.
