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.

Pours a crystal clear and light golden yellow with a fluffy two finger head of white foam.

Strong aroma of toasted malt, biscuits, slightly yeasty, and a faint noble hop spicy note.

A bit of citrus lingers, but the toasted malt takes front stage with notes of fresh baked bread and crackers.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, creamy, prickly.

Overall, a decent beer and highly crushable.

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.
