3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 8/7/12, Rating 2323, one of those weird #s that I enjoy
Aroma: The aroma is somewhat faint with caramel notes, a little bread, nuts, and earth
Appearance: A nice looking clear auburn color with an inch or 2 of bubbly beige head and spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is a little weak as well, there’s some malty, fruity sweetness, but it’s feels a little off overall
Palate: The body is light-medium, leaning watery, with a slightly chalky feel, and a short, odd finish
I don’t know what happened here, but this one just didn’t work for me. It has a really nice looking pour, but that is the peak of the beer, and unfortunately, it goes downhill pretty quickly from there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
