Beers of the World – Key West Sunset Ale

Key West Sunset Ale

Today’s beer,  Key West Sunset Ale,  is brewed  by the Florida Beer Company out of Melbourne, Florida.   This beer can be found at Olivia’s at Disney’s Old Key West Resort and the ESPN Club at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort.

From the Florida Beer Company website:

Sunset Ale is a medium-bodied Amber Ale with a tropical twist.  It is brewed with pale and caramel malts, blended with hops, to create a crisp satisfying taste.

Key West Sunset Ale has an average ABV of 4.8% and received a 66, or “Poor” rating from the folks at Beer Advocate.  It fared a little better with their readers who give it a 72, which qualifies it for an “Average” rating.  Personally, while it’s not one of my favorite beers,  I found it to be an o.k. beer.

For Olivia’s,  I think the Key West Sunset Ale is a fair enough choice for what they have on tap.  But at ESPN, where you have a few more options,  I’d pass on it and go for a better beer.
