On-tap at Animal Kingdom in Disney World, served in a 16oz plastic cup.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a decent-sized foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace.

S: The aroma is malty, but there isn’t much to it, maybe some tea and caramel.

T: The taste is bready with the flavor of caramelized malt, but it’s quite ordinary.

M: Not very crisp or smooth, medium body, medium-to-heavy carbonation, clean finish.

D: Not very flavorful, goes down easy because there’s nothing to it, and isn’t filling. It was better than Bud Light which was my other choice, but I’d rather drink just about anything else.

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.

Bought on Tap @ the Yak and Yeti Restaurant in Disney in the Animal Kingdom, lunch .. . 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.

A special Disney World only brew? I didn't know they had it in them.

Pretty average looking amber color, and surprisingly frothy. Not too much of a scent, really.

Not too much to taste either, really. Probably the most watery amber I've ever had. Nevertheless, the fact that there's a few recognizable hops in there somewhere puts it head and sholders above most other A-B products.

Not impressive, but something a bit more unusual then you'd think you'd find in a theme park. Just the thing to cool you off before you hop in another line for a ride.

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.

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.

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.
