Adnams Lighthouse is developed from our Champion Pale Ale, a beer that won many awards from 1922 to 1980. With an ABV of 3.4%, this classic amber beer delivers a crisp, refreshing taste- With its light fragrance, lovely malt flavours and long hoppy after palate, Adnams Lighthouse shines through as another champion Beer From The Coast.

Bottle. Copper with a hint of red in its colour, and not much of a head. Has a light grainy character and easy to drink.

Theydon_Bois (9125) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle at home, thanks to JF for the donation, 27/12/13. Pours copper amber with a good sized off white head that dissipates to pondwork over time. Nose is toffee, malts, orchard fruit, light bread dough. Taste comprises toffee, bread dough, berry fruit notes, bready/toasty malt base. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry finish with light bittering. Ok bitter but not much doing, fine for the ABV though.

Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a crystal clear dark chesnut brown with a frothy off-white head. The aroma is weak malty and a little woody. The flavour is medium bitter with a malty, liqourice, slightly metallic, watery palate. The bitterness lingers for a while in the finish but doesn’t inspire me.

Ingevara (804) - SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2013
Average tinted head. Tempting smell. A successful compromise with rather low alcohol level, but still both the depth in aroma and diversity in flavor that a good ale should have. Adnam knows its business. Cheers!

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
I wanted something very light, so this is where I went. Light orange body, average light gold head. Pleasant aroma of orchard fruits with floral accents and sweet biscuit malt. Lightly buttery malts with soft floral hops, low bitterness. Satisfying.
