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. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

American standard with a lil more hops than rice. Color of a cheap gold wristwatch with a mirroring taste. Did I also mention it stinks like swamp gas?

This definitely has a very stale grainy taste to it. It’s also pretty bland and uninteresting. I would not recommend it to anyone.

This was wretched beer. I must have been getting to the bottom of the kettle or something. After a decent experience with Hops Clearwater Light, I was expecting their ’Bold Gold’ to be either bold or gold or something. Lousy, stale grainy aroma. Tasted like a bad vodka drink without the kick. Not particularly hoppy, no good yeast, grain or malt flavor. Any of their other beers is a better choice.

Not all bad but certainly not great. Somewhat basic & almost boring. Good with foods.

Uh, your basic American brew here, definitely nothing special. I think the novelty of this stuff in the restaurant is the only reason they ever bottle it...

Not very impressive for a micro brewed beer. Why waste brewing tank space with this stuff when you could just sell Budweiser.

Standard Lager stuff here. Unimpressive. Wy do they bother to import Saaz hops if they are going to use so little of them, are they that expensive?

This is barely better than the Hops light beer, very typical American Macrobrew taste. I just don’t understand why a supposed Microbrewery would make such a typical tasting beer. It is a shame.

All you taste is hops. It has about zero character.
