16 Mile Amber Sun Ale

Okay, it’s snowing in October. What the hell, Mother Nature? This is absolutely ridiculous. I passed two really bad accidents today and the snow wasn’t even sticking. I’m also brewing another batch of beer today to get through this insanity. Someone suggested that I call it October Blizzard. It’s a brown ale, so I’m not sure that it will work, but we’ll see. This beer is another local one that I picked up in Delaware that I can’t get in New Jersey. Let’s see how this goes.

ABV: 6.1%

Style: American Amber/Red Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “16 Mile Brewing Company is owned and operated by Chad Campbell and Brett McCrea, Delaware natives who understand that this area and its residents have a unique story to tell. 16 Mile salutes the rich history and heritage of Delaware. Look for familiar historical landmarks and Delaware culture on our bottles.”

Random: I’m almost done with Season 5 of Rescue Me…I’m sad that I’m not going to have it to watch anymore.

The brew poured with a one finger, off white head on top of a clear, chestnut body. It had lots of visible, active carbonation. The nose was a bit on the nutty side with a very minute hint of hops. The taste of the beer was not what I expected. It had a lot of carbonation with a thinner body. The taste had a bit of fruity sweetness to it with some nutty, caramel malts. It had a bit of a metallic flavor to it as well. The finish lingered for a bit with the sweetness that was apparent in the taste. For a person that doesn’t like ambers, this one was actually decent. Worth a try!
