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%

on tap @ Swamp Head / Gainesville FL --- Clear light golden amber, white full-bodied rim head, streaks of lace. Taste is somewhat sweet malt that adds carbonation on the swallow, turning to light hops as it enters the finish. Malt shows again at the very end. Light, but enjoyable.

Draft. Lightly spicey nose. Some bready notes. Pours a fairly clear light yellow with a medium sized white head, packed with tiny bubbles. Taste is quenching with a note of honey and citrus. Like light oranges. Very quenching after a long day.

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.

glennmastrange (2424) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Tap. Light wheat-like cereal for the malt, herbs and soap for the hops and yeast, with maybe a hint of honey. Head is average size, fizzy, white with some slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is crystal clear pale yellow. Flavor starts faintly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively to fizzy carbonation and finishes very dry. An interesting Cream Ale, but not a whole lot to it.

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.

craftbeerdesign (2243) - 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 I’d rather have an IPA.

UDBeernut (2152) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2014
On tap pours clear straw yellow, translucent, small white head. Some grains and mild citrus nose. Taste is just 100% light malt. Super light body. Could slam this back all day nary break a sweat in this Floriduh heat.
