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 rivers 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%

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Draft @ FBGBF 010. Pours just watery clear with a faint hue of yellow color supporting a thin bright white head. I dont think Ive seen a beer that was this close to looking like a glass of tap water. The aroma is very light with a sense of graininess, noble hops and malts. The taste is sweet and somewhat watery to start beginning with honey sweetness and then some graininess rolling into mild amounts of noble hoppiness around the edges. The above average carbonation helps give it a little bit of a flavor kick to help keep it from being too watery.

onceblind (8211) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Clear golden with a wee tight white foamy cap. Nose is biscuity but also grassy with a semisweet crisp blonde grain tone. Flavor is grainy sweet with a touch of corn and very light grassy hops. Earthy and a bit biscuity throughout.

6/19/10. On tap in a pint glass. Clear golden pour with a fuzzy yellow head. The aroma is grainy and a bit pukey, but overall quite light. The flavor is big corn chips with a hint of sweet and plenty of dryness. Meh.

Tallahassee, Fl - Momos Pizza - on tap. Pours alight golden with little to no head. Brief hint of mint and fruit cocktail aroma. Flavor is mellow with some pears. light graininess, a hint of fruit cocktail and a hint of honey in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice bit of spritziness to it which sits nice.

erickok (5629) - Leuven, BELGIUM - 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)

burg326 (5402) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2011
On draft that poured a pale golden color with aromas of cereal, corn, and a touch of floral hops. Flavors match the aroma with a touch of sweet honey in the aftertaste. Beer was crisp and an easy drinker.
