Out of the can, only one, on the beach. Can't judge the appearance or aroma. The first sip has a surprising sweetish undertone. Mouthfeel is smooth, lightly carbonated. Not bad but unremarkable. If I had had more I'd have drunk more but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

That was the first time I'd had that beer. After spending the day at the beach, we went to a restaurant and I had the same beer on draft. I enjoyed it less. It had kind of a sour aftertaste. I didn't much care for it.

Amber hued with a fingernail of beige around the rim and three quarters of the top. The aroma is of caramel. I'm tasting lots of carmelized crackery malt. The mouth is lightly syrupy.

Very pleasantly surprised at how good of an amber ale this is. Great, caramel biscuity malt is the star here. Light sweetness and a light, bubbly body make this a great session beer.

My first offering form 3 Daughters and I was impressed...

Maybe it's nepotism talking, but my son, home during the Fourth of July weekend and day pick this up for me for my birthday. At first I wrinkled my nose to it, but after taking a few swigs, I was happily surprised. A very nice reddish tinged beer with good head and some lacing fills the glass and empties out. The smell was slightly sweet, slightly malty and light on the nose. Mouthfeel was lightly carbonated to go with its overall light-bodied weight in the mouth. The taste was a blend of what I noted in my nose, sweet, malty and very sessionable (even at 6%). I have a sixer to go through - minus the ones he's trying, so I'm looking to enjoy a few more.

So, not everyday in Florida is fun in the sun. Sometimes a cooler, somber, or more cloudy day comes along- one than makes you yearn for a darker, richer beer flavor. Or maybe you just want a more savory beer to go along with a cheeseburger. Regardless, the 3 Daughters team has this beer for that occasion too.

Deep and dark in amber, its hazy cast leaves an impression of bronze on the eye. Its scent is bold with toffee, toast and with hints of chocolate and raisin. To taste, its the toffee and toast that lace the tongue with sweet and savory maltiness.

Embarking upon the middle palate, the sweet maltiness hinges on sugary quality as its sweetness lingers long and labored. Chocolate, nuttiness, toastiness, toffee and coffee all shed a malty light on the tongue while its hops are light, broad and woodsy- taking a faint edge off of the sweetness and aiding with drinkability.

Its sweet and robust finish is deep and savory. Trailing peanut skins, bread crust, coffee ground and cocoa leave a slight acidity and mild tannin dryness of the tongue, but not enough to offset the lingering sweetness that trails into the throat like cola and popcorn.

Tasted from a 12 oz can into a rounded pint glass.

L - Very dark copper color with lots of red/orange hues. Crystal clear. Little head on initial our and quickly goes to no head at all.

S - Great malt aromas of bread, crystal malts and lightly roasted grains. No hops aromas obvious, but there may be an earthy note mixed with the roasted grains in the finish.

T - Malt flavors of toasted bread along with slightly acrid roasted grains. Earthy hops in the finish. No yeast characteristics present in the flavors.

F - Body fairly thin. Very low carbonation. Low hops bitterness, with some bitterness addition from the roasted malt.

O - Overall, an OK beer, but not great. THin body, low carbonation and lack of head detract from clean, malty flavors.
