3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
