Share This Review

Keybilly Island Ale is an American Amber Ale brewed by Brew Hub, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a can.

Appearance

Pours a mostly clear copper with a thick cap of off-white foam that offers modest retention. An aggressive pour yields the best result. No lace left on the glass.

Aroma

Fragrant aroma features sweet lime and a hint of floral hops.

Flavor

Pale and crystal malts lay down a doughy base that shifts to tart lime juice with a creamy caramel finish. Bitterness is mild but its use of citrus hops is complementary.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is a tad thin for the style yet crisp and smooth; slightly-less-than-medium body and carbonation.

Overall

With its lighter body and fruity taste, the Keybilly Island Ale does seem suitable for the beach or on the boat (as suggested by its label). Although, on the other hand, its feel is a bit flat for that purpose. Regardless, this is a decent brew, but not one that measures up to the better American ambers.
