Ok so I had no idea that this was a AB product...but even without knowing it I haven’t really thought much of it the few times I have had it at Bahama Breeze in Sunrise, FL. Amber color pour with a malty and boring aroma. The flavor is even more boring thant he aroma. Kind of sweet wtih malt tones and very little hops. Skip it please!

Drat at Bahama Breeze.
pours amber, lasting white head.
Don’t be fooled by the extravagant made up story of some explorer trying to find the finest of ingredients to bring back the taste of the islands.
This is just another Bud product from their specialty dept, which makes you wonder what the non specialty dept produces..
Grainy, one dimensional, caramel malts. Drinkable and a lot better than bud’s piss products.

On tap at the King of Prussia PA Bahama Breeze. Pours a translucent red amber with a small off white head. Aroma is light, some caramel, malt and hops. Taste like a Bud product. A little more malt and slight roastiness. Nothing special here. Went ok with the food.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: Red-amber body with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Highly effervescent. Why so gosh-darned fizzy, Aruba Red?
Smell: Unimpressive, mild aroma smelling of toasted grains.
Taste: Lightly toasted maltiness with a fair amount of sweetness. Very faint spicy hops with an almost imperceptible bitterness. Finishes with a lingering taste of shabby, flabby grains.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Fizzy, biting carbonation. Too fizzy, in fact, this thing is like a beer-flavored soda.
Drinkability: Overall, it’s a bit reminiscient of Killian’s. Easy drinking, but the high level of carbonation leaves you belching into tomorrow. Come to Bahama Breeze for the food, not for the beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 The aroma has sweet biscuits and a small but detectable amount of hops. The appearance is deep amber with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with a caramel element. The palate is smooth. I like this one pretty good but it has just a bit of an astringent taste to it.

ln a place where all of the tap handles are Macros, you just know that this beer has to suck ass. Served in a 2Ooz glass. Pours a clear, amber color. Egg-shell colored, creamy head. Aroma has a light caramel, toffee notes. The flavor is quite impressive. Rich deep caramel malt character. Surprisingly flavorfull. Calming hop bitterness creates the perfect balance to this refreshing brew. Sticky sweetness and hop flavors linger on the palate. Why can’t the other A-B beers be so rewarding. Damn, I really enjoyed this beer. Cheers.

Poured a amber caramel color with aromas of light stale hops, caramel and some light nuts. Flavors are light caramel and water, nothing out of this world but ok. I would stick with the mojitos here vs this beer.

I think this was listed as Captain Tony’s Amber at Captain Tony’s 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. Wasn’t expecting to get a rating from this place (if you’ve been there, you know why), but what the hey. It was free with my Key West Ghost Tour ticket.

Nothing like picking up a tick at a totally awful chain restaurant. Red-orange, off white cover. Aroma is toast, caramel. Taste is metallic caramel, husky grain, toast. Could be Bud American Ale for all I know.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Bahama Breeze. Aroma was very weak. Some dark roasted malt but very faint. Pour was a nice deep amber with a one finger off white head. Taste was bland and heavily carbonated. Not much flavor came through the carbonation except a little roasted malt. A good easy to drink beer to have during dinner but as far as craft beer goes, not very good.
