Named for the dam workers who packed all the explosives, this beer is flavorful and refreshing, yet not filling. Made with a combination of fresh Liberty hops from Yakima, Washington and the prized East Kent Goldings hops from England. Two-row brewers malt is used with a small amount of roasted barley to give this brew a well-rounded malty character and its light golden color.

stevoj (2262) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Another nice looking beer, but lacking the crisp hop pilsener character. Tends to be watery, bland. Not much flavor here.

decaturstevo (5170) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2013
Yellow/gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is skunky. Flavor is perfumy, skunky, and just not good. Thin and watery and fizzy. A beer that was off.

Wittales (637) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Appearance was clear pale straw with creamy diminshing white 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are sweet pils malt with slight citrus hops. Taste are sweet pils malt upfront, then soft lemony hops backend. Palate was smooth soft CO2 with light body, then average light lemony dryish finish. Simple Pils brew...

kathouse (1046) - Nevada, USA - JUL 18, 2011
This an ugly beer. Light straw color. Beer has decent hop balance but is very thin with herbal and floral bitterness.

DruncanVeasey (7285) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Tap at the Boulder Dam brewpub, Boulder City, Nevada. Pale, greenish gold with a broken halo and mist of sediment. Grassy, lemon barley aroma. Lemony with wine gum and lime hints, and a spiced apple-type fruitiness. Finishes dry with an unfiltered helles squeakiness. Low carbonation, floury afters. Empty-bodied.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Another boring beer. A bit bubbly. This isn’t good. Really almost makes me think of a super-cheap macro brew like Bud Light or dare i say Natty?
