COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our German style Alt, Lighthouse Amber, has a brilliant light amber hue. Its light tan head is thick, retaining, and laces the glass all the way down. Lighthouse Amber has a silky-smooth medium body. A Noble hop aroma up front finishes with a Carmel malt nose. Our old world brewing method brings out a light toasted-bread flavor you’ll want to savor again and again. It’s a mouthwatering and thirst quenching delight.

On tap at Mackinaw Island Bistro. Aroma has notes of toasted malts, caramel and cereal. Medium amber hue with a small off white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is medium sweet. Palate is medium bodied and softly carbonated. Overall a decent amber brew.

Appealing yeasty aroma, but very dark for style and brewer’s description. Yeast carries over to the mouth. Malty with some residual sweetness

Hazy dark amber. Smooth and full-bodied on the palate. A bit too much malt sweetness, but overall a decent beer.

Had this on tap in a great little dive bar called the Key Hole in Mackinaw City MI. Pours a dark amber with a red hue. The aroma was all malt, some roast and a bit of caramel. The flavor was similar, well balanced and refreshing.

BigBeer45 (1210) - Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle from Champanes, this beer had a hazy brown-red pour and made a one finger off-white head that receded to a cover and sticky ring, there was generous effervescence in the glass, it left rings and fingers of lacing on the sides of the glass, and there was a thin film of sediment on the bottom of the bottle, there were aromas of toasted malt, nut, faint chocolate, earthy malt with malt and bread like sweetness, the flavors were toasted malt, faint chocolate and nut, and a little malt sweetness, the was a little hop bitterness after the finish, the mouth feel was less than medium with average carbonation, this beer had a nice nose, the flavor was good, a good drink.

Very smooth finish. Very enjoyable to follow up with a second. This beer has a very nice color with a refreshing aroma where you detect a bit of the roasted malt. Our beers were poured with a very nice head.
