Who says lighter beers have to be boring? Let There Be Light is Wild Heaven’s first “sessionable” beer, coming in at only 4.7%, yet FULL of flavor. Starting with both barley and wheat, we added two rare hops—Nelson Sauvin and Sorachi Ace—along with a bit of orange peel, to create a complex beer with a citrus note that will change the way you think about “light” beer.

Suggested food pairings: Wings, fish & chips, Tomme-style cheese, brunch (the citrus picks up nicely), burgers. 7.3 SRM.

Note: Formerly contract brewed at Thomas Creek.

Tasted in growler. Very light in color and taste. Labeled as pale ale but toe more of a lager. Definitely a smooth all day brew. Would have again but not much to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

aroma: faintly hoppy ; not much there; appearance: golden straw with minimal head; taste: slightly hoppy with malt undertones; not getting much orange; palate: crisp long bitter finish; lively carbonation; overall: nice session beer; was concerned about the orange but unfounded; would buy if it were available in texas

On tap. This is epitome of a pale ale. Super malty. A little hoppy. Smooth. Easy drinking but medium bodied. Out of this world. More detailed you say?? No... it’s in my memory. This is an amazing pale ale. remember I got it on tap, so out the bottle maybe not as good.

ordybill (829) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Citrus and malt, pretty good Appearance- Pours a clear dark gold color with a small tan head. Taste- This is where it heads south. I found the whole flavor "empty" up front and then finished with a malt taste, not much there at all, very disappointing. Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- it looks good, but the flavor is a real let down. All show and no go. I would not drink this again.

drowland (7111) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2015
5/30/15. On tap at World of Beer, Savannah. Copper, almost amber, pour under a small khaki head, mild lacing. Nice aroma, loads of citrus, some orange and lemon peel, dank, a small balance of doughy and caramel malts are welcome. The flavor is a bit disappointing, just generic bitterness, more of the rich maltiness coming through, caramel, doughy, a hint of nuttiness, some leafy green hops. Not bad.
