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%

It tasted fresh and lively. It had a bright golden color and had a slight fizz. A perfect taste of honey complimented the light taste hops. I seemed to enjoy the beer more as I kept drinking it. I would order this one again for sure.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Draft @ Oldsmar Tap House...poured one of the most intriguing colors I’ve ever seen, a pale pink-tinged golden color which was most enticing. Nose had hints of some mild grain with a touch of honey. Heavily carbonated which seemed to work quite well with the brew....flavors consisted of very light toasted grains, honey and some odd berry-like notes. Good, sessionable brew.

DuffMan (6534) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Draught @ Tu Tu Tango. Bright yellow gold, average white head. Soft honey and leafy hops underscore clean pale malted grains with a mildly bitter finish. Paperboard dryness creeps in late. Still, a highly satisfying honey ale.

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.

Aroma has a hint of honey and a little citrus hint. Appearance is a light pale yellow with a small white head. Taste has a little hop with a nice bitter edge and some honey bitterness but not sweetness. Palate is watery.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Draft at The Hollander. Very nice smooth, sweet, and creamy flavor. I like it.

DialSquare (2530) - 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.

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.
