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.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear golden with a medium frothy white head. Aroma of hay, light graininess, a bit of bread and floral and grassy hops. Sweetish malt flavor with a hint of grain and a clean mild floral hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. Tasty, crisp and refreshing.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - OCT 25, 2012
A nice clear crisp looking golden body with a nice white head that had great retention and some lace. A mild presence of carbonation. Aroma had a nice bread and almost doughy like quality to it. There was a slight lemon note to it. Flavor was slightly peppery with good bread notes, some subtle sweetness to it. A smooth easy to drink beer with a nice crisp finish.

12oz bottle. Clear yellow. White head. Aroma of cardboard is perfect. Nice straw. Floral hops flavor, heavy straw / hay. Soapy finish. Yeast profile of this beer makes all of the difference. Clean, well balanced, a very great beer. Good for style. (3489)

Sour fruit aroma. Dull pale gold in color. Balanced and palatable, but not terribly exciting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2012
12oz can, $2 from Beer Run. Bready toasty malt lager aroma, but with a good lemon note to it. Mostly sweet taste, sort of zesty. Nice crisp lighter carbonation, dry texture. Mildly hazy flat yellow color. Minimal white head, little dots of lace. Tasty light lager.

Purchased at a bottle shop in Philly - There was a comment to drink by the "use by" date on the bottle but the markings did not clearly indicate the "use by" date. This beer had an unpleasant aftertaste that indicated to me that it might have gone bad. I will try to get another bottle from a different source and re-rate this beer.

Crisp, malty aroma is typically lagerish, not complex, not pretentious. Pours a clear straw yellow with a typical white head. Flavor is - well, let us say not what I expect from a craft brew. Malty and a little fruity, but not much better than industrial stuff. Texture, fortunately, saves the day - sort of. Good body, good fizz. Well, if this is indeed a "Lite" beer than itís definitely better than any other of this sort Iíve tried!

Bottle. Clear golden pour with standard white head. Aroma is grainy with a slight malt vinegar touch. Flavor has more mild caramel malt with surprisingly present pine and orange peel hops (still mild overall). More robust of hops and caramel malt than your typical light beer. A quite enjoyable, simple lager overall.
