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.

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.

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.
