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.

Pours a deep brilliant amber with tan head. Sweet malt aromas dominate, of which caramel is the most prominent. This ale is lightly sweet with a touch of the caramel and a very mild bite from the hops that fades fast. The carbonation is lively, mouthfeel thin and smooth. A good ale.

Transparent Brown in color with a tan head. There are few different flavors to appeal to the tongue. It has kind of a hoppy flavor then carmelized barley, then a kind of citrus blend. Very good beer.

Aroma nonexistent. Pours brown. Tastes balanced but not in an interesting way but rather boring. Pours out of an aluminum "bottle".

freekyp (1483) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Pours a deep reddish brown body. Crystal clear with a frothy off-white head. Aroma shows,a strong toffee component with some black cherries. Malty and sweet and very softly carbonated, Amber Sun finishes with a slight rise in bittering hops.

kramer (4895) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2010
22 oz aluminum bottle. Pours a nice clear dark amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that left a tiny bit of lacing. The nose is rather light, a touch of toasted malt and maybe a light hint of hops. A little caramel sweetness as it warmed. The flavor is a little rough and husky, certainly on the sweeter side, with a minimal touch of bitterness. Medium bodied, a touch clingy with prickly fizzy carbonation. Not so good. Should have stayed 16 miles away from this variety pack, this is what you get when you’re too impatient to wait for RateBeer to load on your smartphone.

eaglefan538 (2883) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 9, 2010
On draft at Cafe Gelatto’s in Newark. Pour looked like a standard amber, almost copper color, thin white head, lacing weak. The aroma was caramel and some toasty notes. The flavor followed with some nutty elements, somewhat of a sweet finish in need of a tad more hops. A mediocre example of the style, drinkable and somewhat enjoyable, but certainly not memorable. Mouthfeel was malty smooth, medium body, a tad light on the carbonation.

radagast83 (4548) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2010
651ml bottle. Poured a clear ruby red color with a medium, foamy white head - no lacing. Aroma is a slightly roasted malt body with caramels, touch of hops, though only just there. Flavor is malty, with brown sugar notes, nutty character, touch of yeast in the finish along with caramel and just a touch of chocolate buried somewhere in there.

Aluminum can. Poured hazy medium amber with a short, uniform cap of tan head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel and nutty notes with an odd sour fruit skin component laced throughout.. touches of iced tea and brown sugar too..seemed off. The flavor found similar components, up to and including the odd vinegary fruit sourness.. more nutty on the finish.. came across a little better than the nose. Lighter-bodied and a touch chalky on the palate.. the sourness was again odd.. not sure if this came across as intended.
