Our German style Alt, Lighthouse Amber, has a brilliant light amber hue. Its light tan head is thick, retaining, and laces the glass all the way down. Lighthouse Amber has a silky-smooth medium body. A Noble hop aroma up front finishes with a Carmel malt nose. Our old world brewing method brings out a light toasted-bread flavor youll want to savor again and again. Its a mouthwatering and thirst quenching delight.

Sucks because it is infected, was looking forward to trying this "traditional" altbier.

Bottle from Champagnes. Hits the spot, better than I thought. Malty aroma. A good balance of malt complexity, not too sweet. Very good drinkability

deyholla (11027) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2014
On tap at the Mackinac Island Draught House. Pours a clear deep amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of sweet bread and biscuit with a leafy backbone. Flavor has more of an earthy bread note with leaves and grass backing.

16oz can, purchased about a month ago from the Woodstock Wine & Cheese. Shared with friends 3 ways. Toasty, caramel malt nose. Kind of spicy. Hazy amber color. Thin white head, leaving decent bits of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft carbonation. Kind of soft, crisp lighter carbonation. Kind of dry. Eh. Yeah, kind of carboardy. A whatever amber / altbier. Not smooth enough to drink on your own, OK to share I guess. Wonder how old this is? No date on the can I could find

Strykzone (7193) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2013
I had a couple of glasses as Gs in West Branch. It poured mid brown and had a nice thick frothy beige head. Thinner lacing. A malty aroma and this tasyed quite malty. Nice sweet fruit is pleasnt. Gentle hops are cotrus. Yeast is fairly big and brings biscuits. This is a nice beer for a place like Gs. It is very easy to drink with very little bitterness.

AirForceHops (6963) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2017
16 oz. bottle. Dark amber/ near brown in color, fast dying head. Aroma is toasted grain, yeast, mild caramel.

The flavor is dark bread, toffee, and a very mild hop in the finish. Almost a fruit hint from hops. Very low bitterness. Sweet toffee ending. The yeast is present in the can. A bit better than I was expecting.

Bottle: Cloudy brown with a small tan head. Caramel, butter scent. Taste is slightly tart, almost lactic. Caramel malt, smoke, nuts.... Pretty good.

JStax (6014) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle pour thanks to drsilverworm. The beer is a clear amber color with a beige head of foam. Its kind of a musty, smelling beer with notes of toffee and a moderate spice. The taste has some sweetness and a dry bitterness. Maybe this example is past its prime, but it just didnt have much good going on.
