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%

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours an extremely pale gold with a big white head and some nice lace. The nose is mild with some bright malts and grassy hops. Flavor is a little sweet but with an ok bitter hop finish. this is a crisp and pretty refreshing beer, but ultimately not that exciting. On a hot day I’d rather have a solid pilsner.

juiceisloose (1603) - Windermere, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2010
Draft at redlight. Pours a clear golden yellow color topped by a small, foamy white head that settles quickly to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of honey, cereal grain malts, corn, and some floral hops add bitterness. The flavor follows the same way the honey and cereal grain malts adding good sweetness to go with the floral hop bitterness. There is some light fruits and spice that peak through as well. A touch thin on the body with lively carbonation that leads to a crisp, dry finish. This is an easy drinking cream ale with a nice sweet flavor. Really easy to drink on those hot Florida days.

Draft at the Swamp restaurant (Gainesville, FL). Pours a light golden color with a foamy white head. Slightly sweet and peppery aroma with a mixture of spices. The flavor is slightly sweet as well with a touch of grain. Very easy drinking.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Draft. Surprised I haven’t rated this yet. Aroma is sourdough bread, light grassy/floral hops, honey. Flavor is light sweetness and bitterness with a good bit of lemon, biscuit, and honey in the finish. Palate is clean, medium carbonation, light body. An excellent session ale with a nice twist.

onceblind (10864) - 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.

On tap at hogans in gainesville Fl. Can’t get much aroma. Honey maybe and malt. Taste is same.

changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Draft at Maggie’s Attic. Golden color and poured with minimal head. Tart and light-bodied with wheat, hay, lemon, citrus peel, and bready sweetness. I wasn’t crazy about this one but it’s a decent thirst-quencher.
