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.

Not the kolsh expert by any stretch of the imagination and have only had a handful of this style...... But that being said this is pretty darn good. On the sweet side with minimal carbonation. Drinking this in February but I can see several cans of this getting chugged vine spring and summer. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is almost nonexistent with just a touch of wheat. Flavor is light with a bit of bitterness in the finish. Very refreshing, though it could use a bit more flavor. As it is, would make for a good gateway beer for a lot of people.

Vestlake (146) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a golden yellow color with a huge three finger head. Aroma is malty with some citrusy hops. Taste is crisp, a little malty with a little hop bitterness at the end. Overall, I thought this was a well balanced, nice tasting beer.

Cybercat (3733) - Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a decent eggshell head. Aroma is not strong and malty - that’s all. Flavor is crisp and malty,nothing special but still potable. Texture has average thickness and fizz. I hope this is the least good of Staignt to Ale’s offerings.

On tap. Served a slightly hazy straw color with a small head and spotty lacing. Aroma is citrus, fruity, slight hint of malt and grain. Taste is muted citrus, bit of fruit and malt sweetness. Light bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp and a bit refreshing. Fairly bland, decent BBQ/lawnmower beer.
