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.

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.

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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

Got this on draught. Golden pour. Tasted a lot like other ameraican pales. Watery, some corn and wheat. Adequate at best.
