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.

This and Yazoo's Pale Ale are two of the best in Nashville. This is very drinkable and perhaps my favorite year-round beer that Jackalope produces.

Jackalope Brewing "Thunder Ann"
on tap at the brewery, 4 April 2015

Notes: Golden-orange body beneath a bright white head. Average retention and lacing. Clean but not bold nose of citrusy, piney, woody hops over a bready malt base. The flavor simply repeats the aroma. It's not bold, but there are some pleasant hops going on. Very even keel . Nicely balanced. Drinkable.

I purchased a 6 pack of cans in March while visiting Nashville. The flavor is not strong, but it is nice. It has reasonable hop taste for a pale ale. I'd buy it again.
