Strong lime, lemon and grapefruit aroma. Dark orange. Average off white head that bubbles away into a thin top. Taste is of barley and malt. Only a slight hop taste and the citrus is not very distinctive. Satisfactory ale

Faint arome of malts and hops. Had a very off taste, I suspect I got a skunked bottle due to the lighter glass bottles Lighthouse uses. Seemed to have a decent hop profile and nice balance.

Rating #1083 - May 17, 2014 - Bottle from taster pack. Golden brown pour with a creamy white head that bubbles away quickly, very fragrant with mild citrus in the aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium carbonation, and light bitter hops on the finish - but not overpowering, very balanced. Delicious.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ BC Liquors. Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose is kind of innocuous. Minimal hop aromas. Just sort of grassy and floral, maybe a touch vegetal. Some sweet bread in there as well. Flavor is similarly bland. Some bread, cracker, and. Dry faint hops. Notes of grass and dried flowers. Meh.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2014 From the Lighthouse Sampler. A very peppery start with sweet toffee. Is balanced with a mineral-like bitterness, tropical fruit in the finish. Very drinkable.

Golden-amber, slightly chewy, the malts are a bit chewy, but there’s some florals from the NZ, bubbly head, sweetish overall, leaning towards chewy, with just a touch of NZ hops. Decent beer

A mostly underwhelming and boring APA with a lightly toasted cara malt and mild hops. Pours a pale golden amber with a thick soapy beige head. The nose is sweet, toasty and grassy with mild citrus hop aromas. Quite mild overall with a good balance.

Beautiful hop aromas with a nice lite malt backbone. Pours a nice amber colour and has a very typical ale taste. Nice bitterness and a medium length finish. An excellent example of an American Pale Ale.

Tap. Golden with small head. Very mild pale ale. Light hops and very dry finish. Reminds me a bit of Vernors.

On tap at Bitter Tasting Room on Hastings in Vancouver. A pale orange amber with a bit of head. No nose to speak of. Not sure how to describe the taste and mouth feel. Slightly sweet with a trace of malt. No bitterness detected. It’s beer (I guess) but only barely. Nuh!
