COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden hued, medium bodied, lager style beer, it is a refreshing alternative to a classic lager style beer. Finished with imported Saaz Hops, our Lightning Bold Gold promises a smooth finish.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 21, 2008
On tap at the Newington, CT. brewpub. Clear pale gold with a thin white head. Sweeter and with less flavor than their Light beer. No nose to speak of. Whatever.

Oakes (11842) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Draught, Hops Miami. Very pale golden color. Tastes similar to other hops beers (like water) but with slightly more body and at least a hint that grain and hop was actually used in the brewing process. Nothing bold about it whatsoever.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
changeup45 (1709) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2008
Much smoother compared to other American or Golden lagers. It does have a bit more body and a sweeter taste than your regular lager. I enjoyed this one for what it is. You can pretty much drink it anytime, it’s not spectacular, but a decent choice.
