I should have saved $3.00 and bought Heineken. Drinkable but very disappointed. There is absolutely nothing that makes this beer unique. It is on the bland side and if I lived closer to the beverage store, I'd return it. At least I bought a bottle of Devestation Ale to make up for this junk.

Fire Island Lighthouse Ale……….in a bottle

Appearance-pale copper color, middle of the road head with a little lacing left over by the time it disappears.

Smell-light mix of malt, hops, caramel, alcohol is there, not much else.

Taste/Mouthfeel-subdued, hints of caramel and fruit along with toasted malt character. Smooth, finishes fairly clean. Light mouthfeel.

Drinkability-no major flaws, subdued flavor.

Overall-not an offensive beer but simply not worth a purchase, indistinguishable and bland.

A-decent copper with a finger of head that lasts for a bit

S-some malt, but kind of a BMC tone

T-eh, not so great, a bit of an unpleasant (corn-like) aftertaste, especially after it warms

M-fair

O-fair, glad I tried it, but probably won't buy again

amber/reddish hue with a nice cream colored head. Smell was sweet caramel malts with a hint of a corn or grain in it. The taste was very much sugary malts with again a bit of a grain or earthy back to it. Very nice actually. This is very nicely carbonated and goes down smooth

Had on tap at flynn's on fire island. Deep amber with a thin head. Nice amber ale smell with some pilsner like malt dominance. Flavor is like the smell only more malty. Really catvges a macro vibe. Watery and easy to drink, but nothing special about this one. Probably move onto something else next.

Enjoyed in a pint glass

A: pours a hazy golden brownish color with a thin finger of fine grayish head that dissipates rapidly, leaves zero lacing
S: has a bit of a sweet scent like raspberries or some other kind of berry maybe, also has a slight scent note like some adjunct lagers ive seen out there
T: ok, its drinkable but thats about it, has a bit of sweetness that i guess i would associate with an amber ale but really isnt entirely appealing
M: thin, leaves the mouth clean, medium intense carbonation at the beginning
O: eh, pretty bland and doesnt stand out anywhere, the best part was the mouthfeel and thats never a good sign for a beer
