This beer is brewed by the Florida Beer Company for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure in Orlando. Available only at the Hogsmeade pub/restaurant in the theme park.

Pours a clear ruby brown with a small tan head in the damn plastic cup they served it in. Head falls to nothing, small lace.

Mild malt aroma with a bit of hop. Not too much going on here but I guess I didn't expect too much.

Tangy taste. Malts and slight hop bitterness. Nothing really stands out.

Thin to medium bodied with decent carbonation.

Not bad. Better than most options at Universal. Worth a try.

Had this beer at Harry Potter World at Universal Orlando, paired with a smoked turkey leg. First off the serving size was huge compared to what I expected. A very easy beer to drink. A beer that most can enjoy on a hot and cold day alike. Would recommend to anyone visiting the park.

Id guess the ABV is around 5-6%

Very easy to drink, not too bitter, not too light

A: Pours a clear reddish amber with moderate carbonation. Didn't catch the head on the pour but am guessing that it probably a finger of head that dissipates pretty quickly and a creamy topper remains. Decent lacing.

N: Mostly biscuit with a hint of roastiness.

T: Strong biscuit throughout with some roasty brown sugar and a hint of cocoa. Finishes with slight hints of floral hops.

M: Light bodied, smooth and dry.

O: A pretty solid beer and probably the only thing worth drinking in Universal Studios.

Amber color appropriate for style, slightly cloudy, good head retention despite the plastic cup
Low to none. Slight veggie aroma
Good Scottish flavor, hops way in the background
Mouthfeel low - too low in my opinion
Overall, a good Scottish. The bartender said he thinks the ABV is 5.9 or so; whatever it is, it's mild.
One more thing, this place has more English beers than United Kingdom has at Epcot. Decent selection on tap.
