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%

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...

Chipalsa (1306) - 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.

EricTeusink (631) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2013
If I new this beer came from Gainesville, Florida, worst college town in America, I would have avoided it like the plague. Pours super pale with a white head. Has a barely there lemony scent. Taste is light and grassy. Supercarbonated, most likely to hide its utter mediocrity. Draft - Owl Cafe Tap Room - Apalachicola, FL

(Draught) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of honey, grain, and light florals. Flavor of corn, honey, and citrus with a crisp, dry grassy finish.

Golden with a mild honey nose, bready malts, mild bitter finish. Dry. Not a good match with bleu cheese

craftbeerdesign (2140) - 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.

Clear pale golden color, white head. Sweet, mineral, a bit flat taste. Medium to fizzy a bit thin mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sweet, some compost scent.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
A hazed blonde ale with a thin superlacing white head. A sweet funky mash aroma, a bit spoiled , a bit of spices, cinnamon. In mouth, a rather light milkey and creamy beer with fruity esters, light hops, a bit boring. On tap at Sarasota Brewing Co., Jan. 3 2011.

erickok (3165) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 18, 2012
Golden light body. Honey, bagels and indeed somewhat creamy. But too moderate. Light sparkle. Somewhat bitter, active body and no leftover sugar. Disappointing. (On tap at the brewery)
