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.

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.

Served on tap at Sturmhaus in Chattanooga, TN. First time trying this beer.

Appearance - clear copper color, served with nice head that dissipated quickly. Small amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell - distinct bannana smell. Not clean and hoppy like an APA should be.

Taste - banana again

Mouthfeel - average, nothing good or bad here.

Overall - should be a Belgian pale ale. Not sure what yeast they used, but it's too prevalent.

12 oz can from TN with a 21 Feb. 2017 canning date.

Hazy amber body topped by a semi-durable off-white head.

Aroma; dank tropical fruits. The flavor largely follows and includes some grassy notes and light funk. Mild bitterness that's typical for style.
Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: disappointing
