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.

Charlotte, NC - University location. Clear golden color, small white head. Flavor reminiscent of Budweiser with slightly more hop. It’d be good for parties.

On tap at the Bradenton location. Poured a light yellow with almost no head. Like the light beer, no real aroma. Some hops in the taste. I actually liked their light beer better than this one.

Certainly not a strong beer and that would be OK in the case of this beer except that it calls itself bold. It has a nice citrusy hint and well balanced hop and malt character. If you like Michelob you will like this one.

On tap in Manchester CT, I asked the bartender for a plae ale. I got this. Clear amber pour with a medium frothy head. Mild floral hop aroma. Very malty with very little hop noticable on the tongue. If any hops, there may be some in the finifh. They say they ise Saaz. Kinda boring and bland.

Yellow Coloring. Watery... Perhaps a bit of Hops at the End... Smooth because There’s Nothing In It.... Why is This my 400th Beer?

Yet another yellow/gold beer from Hops Grillhouse. Thin white head. Little aroma or flavor. A few hops show up at the end, but nothing to get excited about.

This just doesn’t have much of anything to it. It is very mildly flavored, with almost no nose whatsoever. This would probably be a fine sunner beer, but it really doesn’t taste like much of anything.
