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.

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

hfmejias (655) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 25, 2013
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 (4702) - 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.

glassware: Yuengling pint...occasion: preparing for the Shore...appearance: burnt orange/brown body that has an encouraging, thick off-white head that laces well-- pleasure to look at...aroma: light floral hops and some bready, roasted malts make for an intriguing balance of scents...palate: medium-bodied, soft and creamy delivery, with a brief finish--easy-drinking! taste: lightly bitter, almost as an afterthought, with much more stress on the toffee-like sweetness--refreshng!...overall: Shan’s Uncle Mark sent this to me particularly please by its sneaky-quick 6.1% ABV; he’s more of a pilsner drinker, so I can see why this caught his fancy; I may have to seek out more 16 Mile brews when heading to Baltimore.

fletchfighters (1028) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
A-- Poured an opaque dark golden brown color. No visible carbonation to this at all, very clear looking. Short lived light brown head. Just a touch over film. Just a tad bit of retention on swirling. A couple lines of lacing but not much else. S-- Malt, malt and more malt. Roasted malts, Carmel malts, the list goes on. Carmel and a biscuit like smell in this. T-- Very straightforward malt taste. A little sweet but a lot of malt to this. M-- Very good carbonation. Lower medium carbonation but a higher than medium feel. A little bit of a roasted Carmel taste mixed with some orange. Slight bit of hops in the taste but not a lot of them in this. Very Carmel dominant. D-- Session beer!! Very good beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark amber, reddish brown color. Small beige head. Sweet caramel apple malt nose with some floral hop notes. Tangy toasted malt flavor. Hints of toffee and vanilla with some dried fruit. Not much complexity, but flavorful. Dryish light bitter hop finish.
