On tap all around Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Appearance: A deep, clear amber color. Thin head that doesn't stick around long.

Smell: A slight malty smell.

Taste: Sweet malt, bitter in a balanced way. Pretty unremarkable as a whole. It washes down food nicely.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, but a little on the light side.

Drinkability: It goes down easily since there's nothing really wrong or distractingly exciting about it.

A pretty basic and forgettable amber ale.

Serving type: on-tap

on tap at animal kingdom on my recent disney trip.

This poured a deep, dark amber, with a nice burnt reddish hue. nice one inch white head, gave way to a nice coating along the top of the glass. Not really any residual side glass lacing to speak of. Nice carbonation bubbles rippling up through from the bottom of the glass. The smell was very nice, lots of grains and cerals, with a hint of some caramel and a touch of bittering pine hops mixed in. A very light off fruit aroma could also be detected after a few minutes. The taste was very well crafted. A good malted back with a good deal of a hop character mixed in. I did not really detect much of a citrus taste at first, but subsequent sips showed this to be more pronounced then I had thought earlier. Very well balanced beer as no particular taste won out over another. Great feel, decent carbonation, but the feel was very smooth and effortless. A little slick, but not distractingly so, rather easy drinking. I could throw down a six pack of these with no time. Definatly a chugger. Overall this was damn fine, and the first steam beer I have had in quite a while. I will definatly be having another one of these in the near future. This was almost too good to pass up if I saw it. I really enjoyed it!

Had in a plastic cup poolside at a Disney Resort.

Pours an amber-brown with a creamy head that remains.

Has a real malty barley taste, slightly grassy. Also has that "stale" beer smell like you get from walking into a bar the next morning.

Thin tasting, slightly metallic, slightly malty. Straw, barley, some watery hops predominate. Like any other mass produced dark beer.

Thin mouthfeel, slightly carbonated. Creamy head remains.

Overall, not terribly drinkable. I'll have something my next trip to the bar.

2.9/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Appearance - Pours a brownish/dark amber color with about a finger and a half of off-white foam. Lots of nice thick lacing on the cup.

Nose - Sweet caramel malts, bready biscuit aromas. Some light diacetyl adds to the caramel sweetness.

Taste - Very similar to the nose with lots of bread and caramel flavors. The complete lack of hop flavor or aroma really kills this as an Amber but if someone told me it was a traditional Bock I would believe them.

Mouthfeel - Thin body, bordering on medium but still pretty thin. Nice cleansing carbonation keeps it from becoming cloying.

Overall - Eh, I would rather drink Yuengling or Sam Adams over this one. Very disappointing.

Caramel and dark bread Aromas .. . nice mouthfeel for a hot day, light spritz .. . tries for a craft but falls short, good for tourists .. . decent and fun for Disney but what happens at Disney should stay at Disney... love those fried wontons yo! ..

I had this on tap at the Animal Kingdom Lodge in Disney World. This beer was consumed in a 16 ounce plastic cup.

A: Dark amber color, with an initial off white foam head that fades away leaving a thick lace.

S: Strong malty aroma with a bit of caramel but nothing special in the nose.

T: Caramel, malt and a bit biscuity for tasting characteristics.

M: Heavy carbonation, medium body and not very smooth on the up take. The finish is very heavy on the malt.

D: I opted for this selection over the other macro BMC beers on tap. It was tolerable given the sub par beer selection but not something I would ask for if there was a better variety.
