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%

På det hela taget en öl som påminner om en lager. Liknande gräsighet i både smak och arom, samma ljusa öl med vita skum, svagt av lime och ljus knäckebröd i smaken.

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.

On tap at Whole Foods , Orlando, pours an off pale yellow gold color with a small head. Nose is sweet with creamy vanilla notes. Taste is grainy and bland and not full of flavor. Finishes the same, rather boring , light and tasteless. Quaff Score 4 / 10

On tap at Whole Foods Orlado. Pours a clear golden yellow with a white head and light aroma of grains. Taste is very light, not much taste but some grains, malt, and bread notes with a short finih. Not much flavor to enjoy

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.

Pours yellow with creamy heqd. Sweet honey citrus smell. Light body and refreshing. Sweet flavor. Dirty finish but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chipalsa (1309) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Not really a bad brew. Smells sweet, a little bit like Twinkies... The mouth feel is dry yet smooth, and with a subtle taste of honey in the background. Light and session-able, just not anything spectacular though.

CCB - tap. Pour was clear yellow with small but fluffy white head. Aromas were of light grain, corn, and a touch of honey. Flavors were similar with hints of corn and grain. Some light sweetness that fades away into a cereal grain finish. Medium carbonation. Meh...

Draft at the Swamp restaurant (Gainesville, FL). Pours a light golden color with a foamy white head. Slightly sweet and peppery aroma with a mixture of spices. The flavor is slightly sweet as well with a touch of grain. Very easy drinking.

På fat hos Cigar City. Ljusgul öl med vitt skum. Doft av bröd, lätt gräsighet och honungssötma. Samma i smaken med visst citrusinslag. Inte alls vad jag trodde att en Cream Ale skulle vara.
