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.

I live in florida and only a few minutes from this brewer so I decided to give this beer a try.
Not impressed. It looks and smells pretty good , however, there is no flavor. I was disappointed at least. It seems like florida brewers only produce wheat or amber ales and their not succeeding at it. I would like to see a dark beer for once. Their 'Florida Lager' is pretty good though. Had it on tap at a local bar.
