Beer of the Conch Republic: an American Amber Ale with 2-row and caramel malts and First Gold, Chinook, and Mount Hood hops. Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Caramel and sweet corn flakes under a fresh floral grass aroma. A sweet caramel flavor dominates backed by floral grassy hops and corn taste. Seems too carbonated. Kind of meh, a below average amber ale.

I poured this beer in my tulip glass. I got about two fingers of foam that died down pretty quickly. The name "Sunset" seems appropriate to the coloring from this beer.

The nose on this one is very minimal. I get some malt and some funk on this one. There really isn't much there.

The flavor is extremely bland. There isn't much flavor going on here. It reminds me of the macro releases for people that don't enjoy beer.
