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.

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!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
THOUGHTS: Really nice. What an amber ale should be. Almost like a nitro beer. A little metallic in the finish, but really nice. One of the best ambers I’ve had. Fairly British too. Bonus point for the awesome aluminum bottle.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark brown amber that was bright glowing amber in the light with an average, light tan head that kept a chick sheet and left good lacing. The aroma was moderate to heavy nutty and caramel malt, lighter roasted and toasted malt; floral and herbal hops, leman slight cherry and tea. The initial flavor was sweet, lightly bitter and slightly acidic; while the finish was acidic, light to moderately bitter and lightly sweet with an average duration. There was caramel, nutty and roasted malts, lemony citrus, toasted malt, fruity, slight cherry, burnt malt, floral and metallic hops, tea and slight smoke. The medium body was fairly oily and then a little dry, but also a little sticky on the lips with lightly fizzy carbonation that was actually fairly soft with a lightly metallic, almost soapy finish.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Good punch of hops and a savory mouthfeel. Rich in fruit, with a balanced malt treatment. Slightly nutty. Decent finish. A good food pairing for shellfish, crab cake, burgers, you know -- picnic table food.
