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.

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

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

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.

Strykzone (4929) - 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.

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.
