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.

edsspoon (654) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle - light amber with a substantial fizzy beige head. Aroma of corn, grass and some flowers. Taste of light toasty malts, a little white wine, flowers and a light bitter finish. Unexpectedly heavy body and low carbonation.

Kita (1309) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear deep amber color with medium frothy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, fruits, grass and mild vanilla. Taste starts with light sweet toasted malt, follows by slight grainy and fruity sourness with dry mouthfeel, while finish is mild bitter. Light to medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Quite tasty for such low ABV...

bartholos (22) - GERMANY - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from a local store in Yorkshire. The Lightouse has a sweet malty and slightly fruity hop aroma with hints of citrus. It pours amber with a minmal fine frothy head. The flavour is primarily defined by the fruity hop with secondary notes of light sweet malt and finishes with a pleasent bitterness.

mR_fr0g (4515) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle at Sarah’s house. Adnams fest. Copper coloured pour with a fleeting off white head. Flavour is straw, burnt sugars, and chalky mineral. Palate is very thin, watery and carbonic acid. Poor.

MarkoNm (1019) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 17, 2014
Pours a clear coppery color and is topped with an average slightly off-color head. The mostly malty aroma is nice and there are also some soury and alcohol notes present. The taste is moderately bitter with slightly metallic aftertaste. Drinkable and nice, except the finish.
