Auburn draft at brewery with thin white head. Scent of pine cone. Lite pine flavor. Lite mouthfeel and dry. Interesting non-hop offering. I must try more!

Tried at the brewery in Gainesville. Pours a clear light yellow with small white creamy looking head. Aroma is floral, I assume this is the yarrow, with some light fruits in the background. Flavor follows with a light floral flavors, light bitter, fruits like pears and some lemon peel. Very light bodied, medium carbonation, crisp clean floral finish. A nice change up here, nice and easy to drink. Swamp Head is throwing out a lot of solid brews lately.

No head really on a deep copper body with amber hues. Aroma is a bit light with mostly. Flavor follows with club soda, bread dough, caramel malts, bitter but not too bitter grapefruit and hint of molasses. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A little bland but also very drinkable. Was a nice beer for the fall time of year.
