Served on-tap at the Shell House in Savannah, Georgia. Pours a light amber with a paper thin white head. No smell whatsoever...like, absolutely nothing. Tastes very light and fruity, reminds me of Magic Hat #9. Very thin. You can put a few back quite easily, however. I wasn't too big of a fan of this, my first Georgia brew.

This looks a LOT like their Swamp Fox India Pale Ale, with the clear, light amber body and decent-sized white foam on top. The flavors are very different, though. In the aroma and flavor, this really is hoppier than the IPA, although the bitterness of this is a good bit lower than that of the IPA. Fresh citrusy hops tingle the sinuses. There's a decent bit of malt underneath in the aroma and the flavor, but this really isn't malty for an amber. Tasty and easy drinking, but a surprise for the style. Light bodied.

Had this because the Claire de Lune supplies had run out. This is along the very lightest end of the amber spectrum - not much color. A bit of white head didn't stick around very long. Smell was light and grainy, no noticeable hops. Taste was sweet like a high-adjunct beer but with a surprising tartness, like a wheat beer with apricot flavoring. Nothing remarkable about mouthfeel or drinkability. It was a nice enough beer, nothing spectacular.
