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.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Hops Restaurant and Brewery Richmond Va. Sampler at brewery. Slight pale mild malt aroma. Clear golden with frothy white head. Flavor of pale malts with some graininess especially in the finish. Light body and mouthfeel. Finish has moderate hop bitterness.

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 (15294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008
Light bronze colour. Vague aroma is slightly grassy. Solventy phenols and vague grains. Quick, watery finish.

Beershine (5219) - 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.

changeup45 (1729) - 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.

daknole (10838) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2008
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.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2007
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.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2007
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 (6355) - 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.
