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.

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.

Gold body with light head. Malty sweet taste, light hops, maybe sugar cane. Clean aroma, light hops.

The name prompted me to try this one. However, it lacked in flavor and aroma for me. Light yellow look with little head, this beer was mediocre, they have done better.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Alexandria, VA - Burnished gold, thin white head. Nose held soft notes of florals, citrus, and buttery white bread. Actually had decent balance with a soft bready, floral, saaz hop combo playing throughout. Light bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, soft bitter finish. Not bad, not great...

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Tap in Ft Meyers. Offered a bit more than the light beer in color and hoppy flavor, but still no aroma.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2005
On draught: Clear light golden yellow with a tiny white head that quickly diminishes and dies. The aroma is grassy stale hops with a hint bread. Taste is very mild bready malt, mild grassy hops and nothing else. Light bodied, watery, medium carbonation. Finishes watery and with a very mild hint of hops.

Pailhead (6142) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2005
On tap: Light grassy and skunk aroma. Transparent gold with a small white head. Very little up front. Light corn and a hint of skunk. Most of the flavor comes in the finish with some light grassy hops. A good imitation of a BMC offering with a better appearance.
