Poured from a 12FL.OZ. bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy light brown body with a thin white head.

Smell: Grainy malts.

Taste: More grainy malts. Very thin.

Mouthfeel: Very thin body, but smooth and refreshing.

Overall: Key West Sunset Ale billed as the Beer of the Conch Republic but brewed in Cape Canaveral (??) - marketing ploy, no more no less.

I love to try craft brews. I'm a Native Floridian, so when I saw Key West Sunset for sale as part of a build your own six pack, I really wanted to try it and support workers in my state. I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. The head was pitiful and was gone within a minute. No lacing. The appearance is a nice reddish brown. The flavor tastes a bit like roasted nuts to me. Overall this beer is drinkable, but nothing to write home about. I don't see myself buying it again.
