This is good beer if you want to sit on the beach and chill out, while listening to Jimmy Buffett. It's light and refreshing. It's pretty big thing here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with all the boaters. Not bad, but not my favorite.

Good amber color with solid head. Nice aroma with slight hop to it. Heavy on the carbination, with a little roasted sweet malt. A little watery on the finish with slight bitterness to it.

Key West is such a lovely locale, it’s hard to not have one’s ratings tainted by the the atmosphere at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville as I swilled a couple of these while listening to his hit "Margaritaville" on the loudspeakers. Slightly bittered. Considerably more flavored than Key West Lager.

Nice, easy drinkin’ ale. Some light caramel in the malt, especially at the sweet finish. Could use a little more hops for balance.

Got to try this one out in the Ft. Lauderdale airport while waiting for a flight. Gotta say, I was pretty darn impressed. Nicely balanced hops, a little fruity... a pretty good beer.

An exellent beer. It really is nice on a hot key west evening, plus its dirt cheap and on tap like everywhere down there.

when i first tried this, i really enjoyed it. subsequent tastings didn’t live up to my initial response though. it has a nice, sort of light raisiny aftertaste and is quite drinkable. i buy it when i can find it, but not if there is anything remotely better in the aisle at that time.

Rerate: I tried this on draft twice in the Keys on vacation, and found it to be much more pleasant than before, a decent semi-hoppy blond ale that’s good with seafood. Also I just read that they stopped artificially softening the water supply at Key West in May.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Peachy-gold, good head, overdone label, screw-off cap, so I dinged it for appearance. Fair body and palate. Slightly tart, mellow/sweet middle with somewhat eggy(?) finish. Fair to slightly above average fare.

Color is somewhere between straw and amber. Moderate body with a thickish and creamy head. Somehat flowery aroma. A rather cloying, chalky mouthfeel with a long lasting bitterness. An ever so slightly above average ale.
