I enjoyed this beer out of a little plastic cup as part of the sampler at the brewpub. Therefore, this won't be the best review and is mainly for my own recollection.

Appearance: golden. They pretty much adverstise this as their "big brewery" ale.

Smell: Not much there.

Taste: Not good even by "light" beer standards.

Mouthfeel: thin and not much there.

Drinkability: Would not order again.

Served as part of the six beer sampler at Shipwrecked restaurant. Delivered in a plastic sample cup.

Pours a very pale yellow, looks the part of a light beer. Very little nose, if any. Taste is quite watery - just not much to this beer, though a full notch (at least) above micros like BL, ML, and CL. Crisp finish.

Sure its drinkable, but there's just not much to enjoy here.

One of the 6 offerings on the sampler, served in plastic cups on the outdoor paio area. Pours a straw color with a medium white head and medium carbonation. Slight grassy malt in the nose, somewhat astringent chalky flavor leans towards the malt, although very faint. Finish is short.

Light beers typically seem to suck in general, but Shipwrecked's Lighthouse Light does seem to have a few unique qualities to it for a light beer. Color is an uninspiring pale yellow with a white head. Couldn't really pick up anything from the nose. The creamy mouthfeel is probably the most impressive aspect of this beer. Seems to set it a part from most other thin lights. Light grain taste that seems to border a bit on the sweet side. Nothing spectacular for a light, but not as boring as the typical macro light either.

Draft. Little head. Pours a clear light golden color. Very little aroma. Taste is very similiar to a macro in fact, if you told me this was some light domestic I would have totalled believed it.. Slight bitter end. Nothing outstanding. I was really let down by this one as I thought at least they would be able to make a decent APA, but alas, I was wrong.
