Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2010
Bottle… Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma is spicy, offering notes of chili peppers, honey, wheat and green apple. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with moderate carbonation. Well-balanced flavor is of green apple with an unpleasant spiciness. Downright odd. Watery, green apple, grainy finish. Not at all my thing.

Taco Mac baby! Very typcial wheat and nothing super special. i did like the honey note once I figured out what it was. Aroma has the tupelo honey in it along with wheat and clove. Flavor is a bit sweet, honey, banana. Drinkable? yes. Amazing? No.
