2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from bottle. Pours a pretty gold with hints of red, but this isn’t what I’d call an amber color. Head is maybe 1 1/2 fingers, but quickly dissipates to nothing, leaving no lacing. Aroma is a bit of toffee and a hint of hop, but pretty minimal. Taste starts as a traditional amber flavor - warm malt with hints of toffee and a touch of coffee, but then there is a very strange after taste with a bitter tang. I would normally associate that flavor with an off batch of extract beer. The after taste ruined what would have already been a meh beer.
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 (1309) - 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 (4993) - 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 (1817) - 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.
