A - Reddish amber in color, Key West Sunset Ale is easy to see through, as it lacks any type of cloudiness. A small white head and ring form upon pour but dissipate rather quickly and leave no trace.
S - Upon first smell you get a good whiff of citrus and caramel malts. After deciphering the scent more there's a slight presence of grainy malt hidden.
T - The taste actually follows the scent pretty well. The first response to the taste is grapefruit which gives way quickly to what seem like out of place caramel malts. The finish is full of floral hops and grain. In my opinion it's a truly odd pairing of tastes, but it's not bad. (I didn't say it was great either.) It's just unique.
M - Low to medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. It's got a smooth texture to it. Easy on the palate.
D - It's a drinkable beer, definitely. Seems like a good beer to be out on a hot day, which is when I was able to taste this. It's not something I'd want very often. Heck, it's not a bad beer but I'll probably never have it again. It's not extremely appealing to me.

Good smelling beer. Beautiful appearance. Poured it and thought, wow, this will be a new favorite. Extremely disappointing. Very little taste, no hops, a little roasty bitterness. I bought a sixer and struggled to reach for another. Really would rather drink a BMC rather than this. A lot cheaper too. Basically this is an amber ale trying to be a light beer. I will be fair and end on a good note though. Decent aftertaste. Roasty and a little bitter.

My parents brought me back some booze from the sunshine state. Thanks mom and dad.
Amber with a quick to scurry head. Smells like cooled amber extract heavy wort. Tastes toastier than I was expecting. Aspirin finish.
Smoother, less grainy Yuengling? Probably better on a warm Florida beach than a cold Dorchester double decker.
