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.

Decent amber ale on tap at maggianos, nothing crazy here, dark amber hue, little aroma, but nice smooth finish

Strykzone (5261) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2013
I had a couple of glasses as G’s in West Branch. It poured mid brown and had a nice thick frothy beige head. Thinner lacing. A malty aroma and this tasyed quite malty. Nice sweet fruit is pleasnt. Gentle hops are cotrus. Yeast is fairly big and brings biscuits. This is a nice beer for a place like G’s. It is very easy to drink with very little bitterness.

bottle. Amber with small head. Big bodied alt. I was expecting more of a generic amber, and this was a nice surprise.

Sucks because it is infected, was looking forward to trying this "traditional" altbier.

Bottle. Pours a light amber with a white head. Aroma of malt and hops. Flavor the same with a nice finish. Overall a solid beer.

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2013
Pours a beautiful, medium dark, hazy, mahogany-brown. Two inch, tan, creamy, persistent head forms. Restrained nose. Where are the aromatic hops? Medium-full body. Sweet malt, caramel, and toffee on the palate. Almost too sweet - would like some bitter contrast. Nice Belgian lace. Extended lingering with hints of whole-grain bread. It is a filling and thirst-quenching ale.

Sammy (9189) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle from Champagne’s. Hits the spot, better than I thought. Malty aroma. A good balance of malt complexity, not too sweet. Very good drinkability

bagalagalaga (139) - Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2013
The flavor is all sweet, sweet malts, but a bit watery. It is pretty good value for the price, but not one I’d seek out.

Onslow (1232) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pour from a 12oz bottle, 6 pack from Hardings. Medium amber brew with dense off white head. Aroma of brown sugar, over-ripe fruit, some hops. Taste is interesting and complex - brown sugar, molasses, toast, hints of chocolate, modest bitter in the finish that dries up most (but not all) of the sweetness. Complex, well crafted, and interesting - what’s not to like?

Bottle. Dark amber pour with a thin tan head that quickly disappears. Traces of sediment eventually settle to the bottom. Aroma is sweet fruit, caramel with toasted malt. Initial dry, malty flavor is balanced nicely by a sweet, ripe fruit finish. Has average carbonation despite its flat appearance and leans more towards medium bodied. Well worth a try.
