COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who says lighter beers have to be boring? Let There Be Light is Wild Heavens first sessionable beer, coming in at only 4.7%, yet FULL of flavor. Starting with both barley and wheat, we added two rare hopsNelson Sauvin and Sorachi Acealong 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.

drowland (7917) - 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.

Cybercat (5247) - Georgia, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours a clear dark golden with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled pale golden tan head. Aroma has malty, wheaty and fruity tones with a woody hint of hops. Flavor has a malty core plus fruity and wheaty/yeasty notes and a woody hop tone that suggests it was dry-hopped. Texture has good body and fizz. This is definitely a good beer for sipping on a hot day while relaxing on the porch.

ChainGangGuy (4826) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2012
16 ounce pint - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Clear, coppery body with a slim, loose, white head. A few smudges of lacing on the descent.

Smell: Mild bread lightly toasted, faintly grainy and with a razor thin edge of implied sweetness atop hops yielding low hints of rough citrus rind and spice.

Taste: A light infusion of lightly bready pale malts with a hint of grain and sweetness. Spicy, pithy hops with a bitterness accentuated by the crisp carbonation. Dry and bubbly at the tail end with a bit of lingering breadiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: "Who says lighter beers have to be boring?" Well, nobody, I guess, Wild Heaven, but thats honestly what the vast majority of light beer drinkers want. The ideals of light, cheap beer are deeply ingrained in the population, so changing the average beer drinkers perception will be a steep, uphill battle. Who knows, maybe theyll come around. Probably not, but you never know! Me, Im just happy to have a few low-alcohol brews available.
