COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber Style Ale. Roasty finishing malts, balanced with just enough bitterness provides a traditional amber ale that is dark red to the eye, but not heavy on the palate. 16 Mile names this premium amber ale for the famous sunsets found at the Breakwater Lighthouse located off of Lewes Beach, Delaware.

SamP01 (590) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Pours a dark reddish amber with a quickly fading medium beige head. Both taste and aroma has some toasted caramel malt, barley with some mild bitter hops for balance. A medium bodied brew with mild carbonation on the palate. Finishes with some toasted caramel malt and mild hops bitterness. Flavor could have been a bit stronger but overall an good drinking brew.

HighlanderOne (1024) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2013
Poured from bottle. Aroma of malt, earth and hops. Clear amber, tan head, some lacing. Grass, grapefriuit hops and spice over toasted malt in flavor. Dry, lager-y feel. Kinda unique, not bad.

Too malty, unbalanced, needed more hops. I didn’t find this beer to be the good.

Bottle 12 Oz. Poured a dark amber with little white head and it is clear. Aroma is of caramel, maybe nuts and malts... Taste is also quite sweet, caramel notes a bit fruity and very malty. a refreshing OK beer, not spectacular but a good beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber with an off-white, fluffy head. Aroma is of caramel malt, ripe fruit and herbal hops. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is caramel malt, bread crust, herbal and earthy hops, ripe fruit. Finish is long and hoppy. Very nice session brew.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle, nose strong caramel with some strong sticky toffee and earth, bitter piny hops. Deep amber-red body with a rocky beige head. Relatively straightforward (bland) taste, hint of metal, no real bitterness or sweetness, medium-full body, flattish with a touch of flowers. Pretty boring.

Of the three 16 Mile beers I tasted, this was by far the best one. The Amber Sun poured an amber color with a small off-white head. The head left some really nice lacing around the glass, as well. The aroma featured some roasted caramel malt and grassy hops. The body was very smooth and drinkable. There were plenty of hops in the flavors, with some very nice balanced malt character. The finish was fairly spicy and dry with some more malt flavor to add to this delicious beer.
