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.

On tap at Orange Park (Jacksonville) Fl. location. Light gold appearance, light lace and head, white. Has a slightly nutty, fruity aroma. Aroma carries over to the flavor -has some blonde ale essence to it. Velvetty smooth mouthfeel.

this tastes alot like budweiser i thought. not bad in all though, certainly much better than the clearwater light whatever it was.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Draft at Ft. Myers, FL. A medium sized white head with fine-small sized bubbles that were mostly lasting. The body was transparent and it had lively carbonation present with a yellow hue. The nose was malty fruity with a malty flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth and this was a light bodied beer with sparse lacing.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2003 TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 124. This draft brew was sampled at the brewery resturant in Fort Myers Florida. This brew poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent yellow orange colored body and a fair lace. The aroma was mildly malty and the mouthfeel was thick, somewhat chewey and contained a mild hop bite. The flavor was that of a simple malt hop mix and was unimpressive.

Surprisingly this is my favorite brew from Hops (thus far). Decent color, with a nice floral nose and pleasant sweet taste.

Medium yellow body with a white smallish head. some lacing. Lightly malty aroma and taste. Some initial sweetness with a slight bitterness in the finish. Unremarkable
