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!

Served on tap in a plastic pint glass at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Appearance: Reddish amber with a thin white head that lingered. Mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Mild hops and citrus.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of malt and hops some mild citrus.

Overall: Not bad. Try it if your there, but its nothing special.

Had it on tap at the Animal Kingdom Lodge's Boma buffet. I didn't really know much about it, not even who the brewer was, but I was told it tasted somewhat like Sam Adams. Appears a reddish amber in color with a nice inch of fizzy white head. Smells somewhat spicy, though primarily malty, sweet like caramel. Taste was a good malt backbone with a detectable amount of hops. It really did resemble Boston Lager, though still you could tell it wasn't, a bit watery. Medium to medium-light in body, but a good beer to enjoy in the hot Florida weather. I was shocked when I discovered that it was brewed by Anheuser-Busch. I would most likely get one again when I revisit Animal Kingdom or Animal Kingdom Lodge, not only because it's better than most of the other options available there, but also because it was actually good.

Specially brewed for Animal Kingdom? Had to check it out.

Pours a dark honey color, rather translucent. Some foamy head. Nose is slightly spicy almost with some maltiness, not very swilly. Taste also was pretty good, slightly creamy, slightly bitter, similar to amber bock but better. A little spice. Surprisingly complex and good for an AB beer. Very impressed and I would definitely have it again if I ever was around Animal Kingdom again.

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.

Smooth and easy sipper on a hot day at Animal Kingdom. Certainly not the best offering available here, but one that really hit the spot. Also known as Rix Red Lager at Coronado Springs Resort, near Animal Kingdom.
