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.

On tap at Hop’s restaurants. Not a great product here. Watery and boring. Maybe even too much carbonation. I wouldnt drink this again for free.

From tap at Clearwater Hops : Semi dark gold color, small white head. Not much smell, not much taste. Very drinkable though, as it resembles water, only slightly thicker.

Aroma has same graininess as clearwater light beer, color was slightly darker and the head still didn’t stick. flavor had the same weird sweet malt flavor, but with more hop presense, so it was more bearable. palate is medium bodied. Still not good.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Clear golden pour with a small white head. Fairly high carbonation. Typical of most pale lagers, not much aroma. Flavors are light corn malts, grains, and slight citrus. Some alcohol on the finish. Nothing special here. Boring pale lager.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2007
12oz mug at the Manchester CT brewpub. Pours gold with an off white head. Smells of light malt and some peppery hops. Taste is nutty and slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is full with a crisp finish.

hopscotch (8915) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2007
UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Draft... West Palm Beach location... Clear, light yellow ale (the menu claims it’s a blonde ale) with a small, fizzy, white head. I couldn’t pull anything from the nose. Terrific balance of pale and pilsener malts and spicy, earthy hops in the flavor. Light to medium-bodied and fizzy with a crisp, astringent finish.

Tmoney99 (10472) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Draft sampler at the brewpub. Poured a clear amber color with a medium white head that diminished slowly with minimal lacing. Light sour citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Light citrus flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration.

kevd193213 (861) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Got this on draught. Golden pour. Tasted a lot like other ameraican pales. Watery, some corn and wheat. Adequate at best.

NachlamSie (2738) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Draught. Pours a decent golden hue, for a pale lager anyway. There’s buttery corn in the nose and some weak paper. The flavor is the same: weak, buttery, corny, papery. Not good, not overly painful. Makes me think of stale bread and water.

I had this at the Alexandria location, it was the worst of the bunch, and i didn’t enjoy much of anything I had. A little bit of a wheat aroma and flavor, but nothing else much at all.
