Served on tap @ Kickbacks
Appearance is impressively clear golden straw in color. One of the most clear Ales I have seen to date.
Mild aromas if any, pale malts?
Tastes of pale malt subtle sweetness with a hint dry tupelo finish. Maybe a subtle dash of butterscotch sweetness. Very clean flavor profile, all very subtley balanced flavors.
Mouthfeel is very light bodied and crisp carbonation.
Drinkability is solid offering for a light bodied ale and/or lager alternative. Refreshing and an impressive rep of the style.
I attended a Swamphead Beer dinner at Kickbacks here in Jacksonville Florida 12/13/2010. The lineup overall impressed me, brews were appropriatte to style and well done across the board. I most notably enjoyed the Hoe Hoe Hoe Wit, Tupelo Cream Ale, Stumpknocker APA, and 10-10-10 Whiskey Barrel Aged as standouts for the evening. Overall a very talented brewery across the entire lineup. I had chance to meet Luke the owner who was a great guy, and Craig the brewer who was passionate and open to share his processes. Both were knowlegdable and I am very excited about this new Florida Brewery.

Again, swamphead is really a great local brewery that I really appreciate as I'm from Gainesville. This beer has a a nice golden body, cloudy. The head pours thick and bright white and dissipates quite slowly.
Smell is crisp, clean, citrusy, and sweet. Taste follows the smell well. The honey sweetness is delicious and balanced out well by the malt and hop bitterness. This combination along with the crisp feel of the carbonation make this a very refreshing beer. This would be a great session beer.
Overall, my impression of Wild Night is summed up in the fact that I will continue to drink a lot of it. I have a gallon growler from swamphead and I will be filling it frequently with this.
