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.

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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

Well this may be a bit of an upgrade for all the BMC swillers out there. A golden lager with a little more body and a touch of that sweetness Hops seems to love. I think they should rename thier restaurant "Malts" because none of thier beers actually contain any hops. Overall this is a clean lager better than most swill but offering no complexity whatsoever.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
In Gainesville FLA: Clear straw hue with small head and no lacing. Faint nose of grassy hops, lemon, toasted malts and butterscotch. Taste starts crsip and citrusy, malty sweetness follows with a light acidic finish, Thin-bodied, watery and fizzy. Rather boring, needs aggressive hopping to improve taste.

2002 Kennesaw, GA. Location - A very light bodied pilsner, that is not extremely watery like I thought it would be, some hops, some fruits, nicely balanced over all not a bad brew.
