BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Wild Heaven Craft Beers
Georgia, United States | website

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Who says lighter beers have to be boring? Let There Be Light is Wild Heaven’s first “sessionable” beer, coming in at only 4.7%, yet FULL of flavor. Starting with both barley and wheat, we added two rare hops—Nelson Sauvin and Sorachi Ace—along with a bit of orange peel, to create a complex beer with a citrus note that will change the way you think about “light” beer.

From a bottle.
Foamy off-white head.
Soft, foamy feel that seems just right for this beer.
Well balanced and nicely nutty. Goes down very easy.
Overall: while I have been generally disappointed with this brewery, this one is a winner.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Citrus and malt, pretty good
Appearance- Pours a clear dark gold color with a small tan head.
Taste- This is where it heads south. I found the whole flavor "empty" up front and then finished with a malt taste, not much there at all, very disappointing.
Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation
Overall- it looks good, but the flavor is a real let down. All show and no go. I would not drink this again.
