Ed. Note: Although this beer was originally an American Golden Ale, after a short period of time the brewer changed the yeast strain, and it is now a lager. This 126 calorie lager with wonderful balance and strong hop finish is unlike most light beers. Reminiscent of an IPA but smooth and easy to drink.
It is named after the famous lighthouse that has stood on a bluff on the south eastern side of Nantucket Island since 1849. Perched precariously 88 feet above the raging Atlantic Ocean, Sankaty Head Light is in danger of falling prey to beach erosion. The lighthouse is the most powerful in New England.

Has a cereal lemon aroma. Yellow body with a fine foam head that laces the glass nicely. The body is a clear light amber with active carbonation. The has a mild yeast malt taste with a hint of lemon. Has a slightly heavy heavy feel but remains refreshing and on the light side.

@ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear light amber with a long-lasting frothy white head, bands of lace. It looks tasty. Taste is dry malt that adds slight lemongrass before becoming more hopped as it moves through the finish. Not a particularly memorable brew, but, hey, it’s 3.8%. Whaddya expect?

Palidor19 (3164) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bland with lots of carbonation and look of something worth more. its light golden color and frothy head doesn’t offer too much else because no malt nor hop anything.
