COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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...

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 (1305) - 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.

saxo (14044) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2012
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.

dextermorgan (92) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Tasted on tap at Brooklyn Waterfront Beer Festival, 6/16/2012. Tasted skunky, smooth texture but bitter, unpleasant taste.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Hazy orange amber in color with hardly any head and then fades to nothing. Carbonation is very light. Smells of malts husks and other stuff. Taste is bland and sad some malt and yeast. It is smooth though so thats a plus but thats about it. Tastes waterdown and weak.

kerenmk (2371) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Cloudy amber, no foam. Nose: honey, citrus and ripe pear. Mouth: bitter with a hint of sweetness. Starts a little bland but gets better. Light body, medium carbonation, unimpressive finish but quite ok.

19Ei8hty (1171) - Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Transparent straw body with a thin, quickly disappearing head. More stale malt, a little biscuity. A little leafy hop note, somewhat medicinal. Dry finish. Another nice buck on the label. How did he get in that canoe?
