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.

A bit of a bitter taste that mellows out. Has citrus accents. A nice red color and not much head. Not bad with dinner.

ARH (559) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a shaker. Aromas of coffee grounds, earth, fig, and dark chocolate come through with a touch of light grain. It pours a dark red brown color that’s nearly opaque with some floating sediment. A light, thin soapy white head tops the beer and it retains a medium ring with a fizzy surface. The taste is a medium sweet and medium light bitter. There’s a zippy carbonation to this oily, medium-light bodied beer. Roasted flavors of caramel, chocolate, and nuts come through on the palate and it finishes crisp with grassy notes. Mild notes of chocolate and nuts stick around in the aftertaste.

deyholla (6991) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2014
On tap at the Mackinac Island Draught House. Pours a clear deep amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of sweet bread and biscuit with a leafy backbone. Flavor has more of an earthy bread note with leaves and grass backing.
