Fire Island is known for being easy going with a lot of character, so Fire Island Lighthouse Ale has been crafted the exact same way. A soft carbonation and light caramel finish make Fire Island Lighthouse Ale easy to drink, yet it has the toasty round body of a classic American Ale to give it real substance. It’s a beer for all seasons, all foods, and all friends. Or as we like to say, the kind of beer you want to have a beer with.

good color, nice malt, smooth taste, subtle hops, a little smokey, the keg was a bit flat at Meehans in Long Island but I graded on what I thought the beer could be...opted for something that was drinkable than a heavy Guiness on St Pat’s Day to go with heavy food and was rewarded...a dependable beer...

Pour is hazy amber, no head. Nose is stale grain. Little sweet. Middle is vague soft fruit and malt. Finish dries slightly. Where is the rest of this beer?

Foxbush (1820) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2015
12 oz bottle The ale poured a clear amber with small head and no lacing. The sweet aroma of caramel malts and grain greet you. The ale has a medium body with soft carbonation. This is an easy drinking beer with a smooth finish.

Minimal head, color is a nice amber color. Aroma is light, very mild hop, but nice caramel and malt. Light carbonation. Flavor is light hops, with some really nice burnt caramel, sweet finish.

The Fire Island Lighthouse Ale pours a light, transparent brown with a slight white head that disappears quickly. The nose is light malts and a bit of mustiness and a touch of sweetness. It drinks like a macro lager, certainly not a pale ale (maybe an amber). Mild sweetness is here, but nothing interesting.

trevor211 (1623) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Pours bright transparent orange, with a smallish head. Very mild, slightly malty aroma. Flavor brings a bigger hop profile, but it remains very mild. Sessionable and tasty.

Bottle @ JFK, NYC. Medium head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are crisp clean malt and hops. A little on boring side, but very easy drinkable.

Tasted on tap at Brooklyn Waterfront Beer Festival, 6/16/2012. Tasted skunky, smooth texture but bitter, unpleasant taste.
