Bruny Island Beer Co Lighthouse Ale

Style
Light Beer
ABV
2.8%

The beer that takes its name from the Cape Bruny Lighthouse was designed with a couple of things in mind. With many visitors to the cellar door driving, they needed a light beer on their roster. What's more, brewer Evan fancied something full of flavour but low in alcohol he could sit on for festival sessions when not at work. What that turned into is this sub-3 percent ABV red/amber ale.

It's a good looking beer, nailing the colour and sending up a big, fluffy head that leaves pretty lacing on your glass (for those into such visual kicks). There are toasted biscuit and chocolate malt flavours to be found amid its surprisingly full body, while the chosen hops (Cascade, Willamette and Galaxy) don't offer too much beyond some floral aromas and a hint of marmalade (which could equally come from the English ale yeast) and a drying finish.
