COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English 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.

Appearance wise, pretty boring. Color is ruby amber and flat. Aroma is light and mostly of malts. Taste finds a mostly malt based ale with little in way of hop flavor and bitterness. I don’t think I would prefer another one.

This is an O.K. beer, but not exceptional. 16 in Georgetown De, just some 10 miles from Milton De from where comes Dogfish beer. 16 mile will have to improve if they want to compete with Dogfish. 16 Mile I’d drink again, but not my favorite.

Ugh this was a pretty bad amber ale that was very sweet and had a bit of the metallic taste from the aluminum bottle. Just not very good.

keanex (1288) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker, no bottling date or freshness date.

A: Clear copper/amber body with lots of fine carbonation floating to the light tan thin head. Poor retention but coats the top of the body.

S: Sweet caramel and some mild roasted malts. Malty and sweet.

T: Roasted malts up front with sweet caramel and some mildly earthy floral hops on the finish.

M: Medium to almost thick body with light carbonation.

O: This is just a malty overpriced beer, there’s nothing about it that makes me want to buy or drink it again. No thanks 16 Mile, keep to your small area in Delaware, you’re not going to do well anywhere else.

Bottle split with everyone. Pours an amber body. Body is mellow with notes of light malts and grass hops.

A nice blend of a red ale and a blonde ale. Leaves a nice "hoppy" finish. Great local brew if you live on the Eastern Shore!

Tap @ brewery. Pours deep amber with medium, creamy off-white head; average retention and some lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, caramel, earthy hops, and faint dark fruit. Flavor is malt forward, average hops, and light esters; dry, slightly bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation with low warmth.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2011
This poured a clear amber color with a beige head. Aroma was pretty bland malt, light caramel and light frut. Flavor was older grassy hops, light sweetness. Very bland.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sampled from a 22 oz can this beer poured a nut brown color with a huge foamy light brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma an enticing blend of sweet malts, sour caramel, nut and faint cocoa with a faint vegetal undertone. The flavor was bitter and tart with faint dark fruits, sour caramel and a mild vegetal presence. Medium finish. Medium body. Solid.
