2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had in a 12 ounce bottle, aromas of copper, and caramel. Reminded of a yuengling, not too refreshing in Florida heat.
12 oz bottle at Margaritaville in Key West, Florida. The pour is clear ruby golden with not much of an off white head. The aroma is a touch of caramel malt, and not much else. The taste is very mild sweetish malt, caramel and toffee, and a hint of grass floral towards the back, which is very faint. The palate is light bodied with active carbonation and a non-descript finish. Fine, but boring. BrewCommander55 (1) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 18, 2017 does not count
Metallic smell, not a fan of the palate, to subtle and overridden by the unsavory odor. For the price and go for something different. 11 bucks for a six pack. Will not buy again. MBlessing (1391) - Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 4, 2017

Ok. Drinkable. Kind of macro, not really taking any chances. Probably would not buy this again.

Clear amber colour with a white tiny head. Mild fruitiness and malts, metallic and short taste, not so fresh.
On the beach Longboat key, Florida. Mild mild malt taste with a faint hint of hops. Light taste on a hot day.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a fair head. Aroma of malt sweetness and not much else. Taste is similar with caramel sweetness. No real bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, smooth with a laid back feel. Fits the Key West lifestyle. chinchill (5183) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2016
On tap at the brewery taproom.
Reddish amber body with good clarity and a durable off-white head.
Good bitter-sweet balance. Ample light and medium malt flavor.
Feel: a bit thin but this works OK with the medium+ carbonation and light dryness. ChadPolenz (1846) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2016

AROMA: Light caramel maltiness, a hint of butterscotch. No hops. 7/12
APPEARANCE: Mostly clear shade of dark amber/light copper. Large, white, frothy head. Good lacing and retention. 3/3
FLAVOR: Malt-forward palette, though not especially sweet. Mild caramel/toffee flavors and some dry bitterness in the second half but no hop distinctiveness. No flaws, but not much to spec. Way too mild. 10/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light/medium body; fairly crisp. Smooth and clean aftertaste. Too light for the style. 2/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: This is clearly a mild beer intended for a pedestrian audience. Succeeds as such, but not a great example of the style. 5/10
TOTAL SCORE: 26/50
Enjoyed from bottle at Morada Bay while eating in Islamorada FL. I didn’t take tasting notes, but this was just an average amber ale, nothing tropical about it.
