Road Trip

<p>Pack the Westie and let&rsquo;s go for a trip. The lighthouse Brewing Company has arrived in the Fresh-Hop game in the Road Trip Dark Ale. This copper coloured ale pours into the glass with a single finger of thick and lacing head. The aroma of the Road Trip Dark Ale is filled with caramel, light honey and a mellow but crisp hop bitterness. The smell is definitely bitter-sweet. The flavour in this fresh hopped dark ale is quite creamy with caramel tones and toasted malts at the front. Mild toffee flavours sneak through as well before a mid-bitter hop finish builds at the end. The overall flavour of the beer is great as it is easy drinking yet rich and flavourful. The only downside is that the &lsquo;fresh&rsquo; aspect does not truly shine as without the name one may not even realize this distinguishing factor. The beer tastes great but it does not fully embrace the delicious fresh-hop flavour potential.</p>
