COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Cream Ale was brewed as a modern take on the traditional pre-prohibition style. Burnished orange in colour, this cream ale drinks with a silky smooth mouth feel. Vienna and Cara malts add richness and depth of flavour; while new season whole-leaf New Zealand hops lend an enticing floral and tropical fruit aroma. Fresh and fragrant, clean and compelling, Lighthouse Cream Ale is the perfect farewell to a setting West Coast sun.

Pours a hazy orange with a little bit of lasting head. There was some sediment in this one - more than what I expected. Aromas of piney hops, caramel, sweet grains. Initially the flavour of hops comes out, but fades right away into a sweeter, creamy malt. A bit of alcohol lingers, but the flavours die pretty fast. Nice addition to their summer pack.
