Pass on Sunset Ale, Pick up some Southernmost Wheat

November 9, 2010

I walked into Publix this afternoon and was greeted by a sign advertising selected beers from the Florida Beer Company as buy 1 get 1 free. I picked up a 6 pack of Key West Sunset Ale and Key West Southernmost Wheat. 

I allowed them to chill in the fridge and popped 0pen one of the Sunset Ales.  It poured a nice brown color with a decent head.  It smelled entirely of malty sweetness without a hint of hops.  I took a sip and wanted to spit it out. It was sweet with no hop bitterness and a funky after taste.  It was not good at all.

Disappointed but undeterred I tried one of the Southernmost Wheats. It was marketed as a witbier and poured a nice cloudy gold color.  The head on it was decent and it smelled like citrus and spice.  I took a sip, it had good flavor (citrus, with some spiciness) and was refreshing.  Unlike the Sunset Ale this was a decent beer I would buy again.
