Reviewed from notes.

A-Pours ultra light gold with ultra white head.Minimal bubbles. Short head and minimal lace.

S-Smells mildly hoppy with sweetness and some citrus.

T-Mild amount of bitterness very clean. Simple yet refined. Sweet honey flavor shows up most strong on the finish. Hints of butterscotch in there as well.

M-smooth and creamy with some fizzy carbonation that is a bit high but helps to liven up the beer.

D-A light easy drinking quality brew. All of the Swamphead beers I feel fit in to this catagory accept the 10-10-10 that guys more of a world beater. But Wild Night keeps its place as a great middle of the road drinking option.

On tap at the brewery.
The pour was very light yellow-gold, crystal clear with a small but durable white head. Scant lacing.

A pleasant light malt aroma with a nice honey overtone.
Body is light, as expected, with near perfect carbonation. Refreshing, as is the light, honey/malt flavor.

O: best cream ale I've ever had.

Nothing too special, guest tap.
On tap at Cigar City. A little floral honey. Rather plain cream ale, a little Hallertau hops flavour, a bit of honey.Golden colour, a little white head.A tad meady and drinkable on a hot day, like a light mead. I would rather put some New Zealand honey in hot water and skip the carbonation part.

Pours a rich golden yellow color with a large frothy white head with great retention and lacing all around the glass. The aroma is malt, citrus, honey and a touch of hops. The taste is malt with a faint honey-like sweetness, citrus and a nice touch of hops in the finish balancing out the sweetness very nicely. Glad I finally got to try a beer from this brewery, looking forward to trying more of their lineup.

On tap at Cigar City. This beer presents a nice eggshell head. Honey yellow with a nice carbonation.

Not much in the nose. A little sweetness and some cedar.

The taste is light ale with a little bit of cedar. Weird. I'm wondering if the line was cleamed. Oh, well. It's still pretty good. If you search for it you can pick up a little honey in the finish.

The feel is nice and creamy, while still very light. An interesting juxtaposition.

Pretty drinkable. Light and refreshing on a hot day, of which there are many in Florida.

notes from phone
on tap at Gator's Dockside 1-3-11

A- Straw yellow, very small, film-like head

S- Very much pilsner-like, maybe a little bit of sweetness but that could just be a little hope from the name

T- Crisp clean sweet malts carry through entire beer, not a whole lot of action going on here. Not like there's some subtle flavors playing around, just not a whole lot going on...

M- Light and watery. Some bite from the carbonation but it's not the worst mouthfeel I've every experienced

D- Dumbed down version of the style... I'd try any other swamphead before this one as I do tend to enjoy their brews

huge thanks to frank for sending me up the barrage of ccb growlers, loving to get to try these. poured into a pint glass.

the pour was much the same as the chocolate version but with a little less head retention and a bit more of a hazed appearence. Very light aroma, nearly non existent at times with light hints of hops, light honey sweetness and a herbal note but it was all under an umbrella of grain and light grassy notes. clean and smooth again with the flavor with little in the way of aftertaste and light dryness in the finish.

overall a nice and solid beer, nothing out of the norm though.

This is the clearest, lightest color beer I've seen with this much flavor. Pours a crystal clear, light straw color with a tall white head with a long retention. Bubbles constantly stream up from the bottom of the glass.

Smell contains the graininess of the flaked maize in the beer. A little bit of fruit and spice come through the nose as well, though not as strong.

Taste is a lot of tupelo honey with some slight citrus and graininess lingering in the background. If you've never had tupelo honey before I could understand not getting any honey flavor out of the beer but as an avid tupelo addict I get that as the dominant flavor.

Beer is thin but not watery with a fairly high level of carbonation.

Overall this beer is extremely easy to drink and extremely refreshing. The sweetness and thin body make this a perfect summer beer.
