Notes/Commercial Description:
Thunder Ann came about after a massive google search trying to come up with a name that we thought could represent our American Pale Ale. That’s how we found out about a little lady name Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind Crockett. She was Davy Crockett’s wife (well, in the folklore, according to Wikipedia, he married someone named Mary) and she was a bad ass. Seriously. Look her up. We mulled it over and thought that Thunder Ann could also be a pretty great name for a beer.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, hops, sweet malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, hops, slight sweet malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of yeast. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, and body.

I had this on-tap at the Broadway Brewhouse in downtown Nashville.

A: Poured a clear, gold color, with about and 1/8 finger head that stuck around. Yep.... looks like an American Pale Ale.

S: I didn't get much, but I actually got sort of a brown sugar-like component that was pretty fresh and inviting. Understated overall.

T: More Pixie Stick dust (sugar) than hops, but that was okay. It had a mildly alcoholic aftertaste without much bitterness.

M: The carbonation was fairly low, I got some pleasant candy-coated booze, and this was pretty sweet and sticky.

O: Pretty good.... I'd have it again if I'm ever back in the area.

Had on tap in a pint glass in Nashville.

Pours a clear dark gold with a one finger white head. Ok lacing and head retention.

There is a light citrus aroma that is reminiscent of peach and mango.

The taste is very similar with the fruit being dominant however there is a little bread in there as well. The hop flavor as well as the malt flavor is weak, though, and quite muted. Mouthfeel is quite soft and on the sticky side, almost like it is not quite attenuated all the way.

Overall, an ok beer but just sort of messy and weak all around. Could use some cleaning up.

No freshness date, poured into a pint

A- pours a slightly hazy amber color with a two-finger foamy and sudsy head that retains nicely long after the pour

S- nice hoppy aroma with notes of pine, citrus and floral hops. Underlying malty sweetness adds a touch of bready aroma

T- well balanced with some fruity hop notes, lightly toasted bready malt, slightly bitter finish

M- medium body with lots of carbonation leads to a big foamy mouthfeel and a sudsy and crisp dry finish

O- enough noticeable fruity hops, but well balanced to keep it in check for the style

Tasted On: 08-03-2012
Freshness: Unknown
Packaging: Growler
Glassware: Globe glass
Purchased: Filled at Midtown, Nashville

Appearance is a clear and moderately dark amber-colored beer, topped with a small off-white head. Lacing is fair and head retention is low.

The aromas are dominated by grassy and earthy hops, with some malt breadiness in the background.

Taste follows the aroma in that the hops are more prominent, but there is a good balance here between the malt sweetness and hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel is smooth and has an average amount of carbonation with a medium body. The beer finishes with a moderate bitterness.

Overall an easy drinking, well-balanced and pleasing pale ale. Mellows nicely as it warms up to room temps as well.
