2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on tap at King of Prussia Bahama Breeze. Itís about half price of the other beers and simiiar to Kilianís Irish Red. I actually thought this beer was pretty good. It is almost devoid of any bitterness, and has a very mild sweetness. Lots of yeasty malty whtie bread with a hint of copper. Very inoffensive, but still has some flavor and feels nice going down.

I think this was listed as Captain Tonyís Amber at Captain Tonyís in Key West. In any event, the name denotes a beach area and Key West fits that description quite nicely. Pours average amber with a subtle roasted malt and peach aroma. Watery mouthfeel with slight hints of peach. Wasnít expecting to get a rating from this place (if youíve been there, you know why), but what the hey. It was free with my Key West Ghost Tour ticket.

The beer looked nice when the waitress brought. Nice coppery color, unfortulately, the copper managed to work itís wan into thte aroma and tasste. Not much hops or malt and a flavor or pennys throughout.

Not bad for an AB product, all things considering. It is light bodied even for the style, with a bit of malt but not much in the way of the hop profile. A bit metallic in the finish as well as the nose.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Kennesaw, GA Bahama Breeze.
Pours a bright copperish red with a thin but persistent tan head. Nice lacing all the way down the 20oz glass. Smell is a light fruity malt and not much else.
Taste is a decent maltiness, fruity and crisp. Some light caramel notes. Even a tinge of bitter hops in the finish especially as it warms. A slight tinny quality to the finish. Mouth is light to medium bodied, somewhere in the middle. Way overcarbonated, unpleasantly so, but this smooths out as it warms a bit too. Actually improves as it warms, not common for an AB product. Not too bad at all. A nice red lager.

No head, reddish amber. Scents of caramel/toffee and something metallic. Flavor is pretty nice of sweet malt that picks up caramel aromas and a touch of hops. Nothing great in the finish, but the initial flavor is pretty good.

big 20 oz glass at bahama breeze - neutral beer. not much of anything in the aroma other than typical "beer" smells. no distinct malt or hops, and the flavor and body are neutral at best. smooth and easy-to-drink, but it doesnít offer much in the way of taste. at least it doesnít taste bad. better than killians.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Served like an iced-tea, crystal clear, caramel-colored orange with a slight film that left light lacing. Next to nothing in the aroma outside of a bit of barley and rice. Metallic flavor with a taste of what caramel-coloring looks like. Sort of like a weak, weak, weak bock... with adjuncts.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap. Amber red with no head. The first warning sign should have been that it was less than three bucks for a big honkiní glass. Didnít get much in the way of aroma or flavor, but some malt, corn, and metallic bitterness. One of Budís other beers with red food coloring? Could be... Thin body felt like nothing. Iím pretty surprised it has rated this high.

On tap at Bahama Breeze, in KoP, PA. Color is deep amber, with aromas of malt and caramel. Flavor starts out with sweet malt, but ends slightly bitter. Very good, considering that this is a Bud product.
