On tap.It’s Race Rocks with some NZ hops thrown in. The advertising and description and make this look like one for the beer geeks, but nope. Bready with a mild peach twist.

Bottle. Copper-orange with a small head. Light but pleasant aroma of caramel, black currant, and a touch of pineapple. Balanced flavour, with mild caramel, vanilla and lightly toasted malt up front, some cut grass in the middle, and mellow citrus and pineapple in the medium-length finish. Medium bodied, crisp, a bit astringent around the edges. Not bad.

355ml brown bottle. Copper colour, clear, small clingy and soapy looking white head. Nose is fruity, touch of citrus and some caramel. Taste caramel malts with light fruitiness. Light citrusy and fruity finish, bitterness is low. Overall pretty light, was hoping for more of a hop kick.

Small white frothy head atop an orange body. Nose of Amber ale, mild cantaloupe. Sweet and somewhat fruity. This may be an old bottle.

Hmmmmm, I didn’t like this. Bitter, weak, low carbonation, just doesn’t taste right. Someone reviewed it as skunky, and it kind of is. Not enjoying this one.

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

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
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.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 26, 2014
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
