I wish I could find this Beer in Miami, in the 70 s, we Loved Hopin Gator in South Florida, I hope they start Selling it again, and the test Market should be The Greater Miami, and Fort Lauderdale Area! steyrman (12) - TORONTO, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2008
I remember this from a trip to Florida with my family when I was 11. My dad bought it and couldn’t drink it. He thought I’d like it (!) and gave it to me (!!) I think he was trying to get me to hate beer because it was years later that I only tried drinking beer again. No need to elaborate on pkbites’ review. It’s exactly right. pkbites (946) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2006
I saw this throwback to the early 1970’s in this weird little tobacco store in downtown West Allis, WI for $1.49 for a 6 pack of 12 ounce glass bottles.
I was intrigued that one could buy a brew nowdays for a meager $1.49 for six 12 ounce glass bottles.
SUPER STRONG aroma of sweat & salt.
One swig and I knew exactly what this is: Beer & Gatorade! No shit! Theres no question that’s what it is. Beer (hence the "Hop") and lemon/lime Gatorade. [hence the "Gator") It even looks like beer & gatorade: light yellow-green color.
And, no, it doesn’t taste like a cheap version of Zima. It’s Beer and Gatorade through & through. Leaves a real soury-sweaty-salty taste.
I’d still like to find out the alcohol content. See if it’s at least a value as an alcohol delivery system. Probably not. I don’t notice any strong presence of intoxicant. It’s like it’s made with a cheap light beer like Blatz light. I don’t know about alcohol, but it has to be chock full of sodium! Very salty, like sweat running down your face & into your mouth. BLECH!!! This is some of the most bizarre swill I’ve ever, EVER had. Truly very strange.
