A German kolsch-style ale formerly known as Stop Work 689, Sand Island Light House was renamed to commemorate our finally covering the entirety of our home state in 2013. Sand Island Light House is the southernmost point in Alabama. Crisp, clean and refreshing, Sand Island is available year round in cans and draft formats. Mildly sweet with a touch of Tettnanger hop bitterness in the finish, it is the perfect brew for warmer weather or anytime of year.

Can. Poured straw colored slightly hazy with white frothy head. Malty and somewhat butter popcorn nose. Medium body slightly sweet with a bit of earthyness. A little on the flat side. not my favorite from this brewery.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2015
12 oz. can from shrubber85 - thanks again, Roger! Pours a barely cloudy gold color with a big fizzy white head that settles into a film and sloppy ring. Notes of straw, grass, light citrus zest, banana chips, toasted sugar, cracker, and a bit of minerals. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Decent Kolsch. Good canned offering.

12 ounce can thanks to my friend Jason. The beer is a clear gold color with a white head of foam. The aroma has grainy aspects with notes of honey and light ginger. A bit grassy as well. The taste is more of the same, but some fruity notes creep into the picture. More bready notes come through as the beer begins to warm, which I vastly prefer. Maybe I started too cold. Lighter to medium body and plenty of carbonation. Decent beer.

rollinsr (504) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 9, 2015
Pours clear yellow/straw color with with thick and bubbly white head. Aroma is yeasty with a small amount of spice. Flavor is indeed crisp but offers very little else. There still is a hint of spice but there are metallic off-flavors as well that ruin the overall experience.

weihenweizen (2495) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can ffrom shrubber85 poured into a glass. Hazy golden with huge bright white head. Aroma is light malt, medium body, medium carbonation, and little big bubble lacing. Taste is light malt, light grassy hops, hints of lemon, and crisp hops. Easy to drink, but not much flavor.

Kroney (233) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 13, 2015
BIF project. Straight forward kolsch-style ale. Hay, grass, grain, sweet yeast, pale malt, some lemon. Refreshing palate. Well done.

sawbuck (509) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2015
Aroma of straw, and some hints of fruit. Yellow color with a fluffy white head. Sweet flavors up front. Some funky barn and fruit flavors melding with the sweetness nicely. Bitterness on finish is light and lingers a bit, slightly peppery. Slightly chalky mouth feel. O.k.

Patrickctenchi (5227) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2015
Can: A huge white head that after it finally recedes, shows a light yellow-gold. Sweet lemon, grain aroma. Taste is very soft...barley malt, lemon. Almost creamy...light....pretty good, but it’s just too light and delicate.... Not quite enough of any of it’s parts.

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2015
A clean and crips summer beverage without a whole lot of smells or tastes. Decent alternative to a pale lager when the thirst sets in.

Can. Lemon, straw, and barley malt aroma. Pale yellow with large white head. Sweet lemon barley malt and moderately bitter weedy grass flavor. Decent body.

Poured a clear straw yellow with a full white head. The aroma was a weak grass and citrus. The lightly bitter with light body and a bit thin on the tongue.
