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 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.

redlight (2318) - 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 (2254) - 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.

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.

jjgmd (1985) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2013
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

NordicV (1943) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2012
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.

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

adasko (1882) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Aromat lekko słodowy, ale też leśny, delikatnie cytrusowy. Brak piany, klarowne, złote. W smaku słodowe, delikatna ziołowa goryczka. W odczuciu wysoko nasycone, ale nadal dość gładkie i kremowe.

Draft. Surprised I haven’t rated this yet. Aroma is sourdough bread, light grassy/floral hops, honey. Flavor is light sweetness and bitterness with a good bit of lemon, biscuit, and honey in the finish. Palate is clean, medium carbonation, light body. An excellent session ale with a nice twist.
