Had this on the cruise boat and it was slightly hoppy and good for drinking out at sea.

tap on Carnival Valor

Pours a clear amber red with a white lacing for a head.

Smells of bready malts and some mild caramel. No real hop presence.

Biscuity malt flavor with brown sugar and, again, no real hop representation.

Medium body with sharp tingles of carbonation.

Surprisingly not bad, especially for an AB beer. Honestly didn't mind drinking these, better than the alternatives which were pretty much all macro lights. Decent ale.

On tap on Carnival Triumph.

I figured this was probably AB brewed and now I know.

Decent beer...better than Bud, BL, Coors and Lite by Miller...

Without doing a side by side it reminded me a bit of Killians Red...

Drank two of these on the ship... obviously they don't really have any craft beer on the boat. I did finally find Shiner Bock bottled.

Enjoyed on the Carnival Valor, one of a few (bartender says 3 as of right now) ships it is available on currently.

A: thin head minimal lacing on an amber with orange/ crimson tints and clear body.

S: light on the nose, sweet malts and maybe a slight earthy hop note.

T: all sweet caramel malt. No other notes or hops really.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Served ridiculously cold. Crisp and refreshing.

Overall: about the standard character for a red or amber ales you can have. Highly drinkable but barely memorable besides the fact that it is the best beer I have ever had on a cruise ship. Not a very difficult feat

Drank a couple of pints of these on the Carnival Magic. Took some notes for reviewing.

Poured a very nice red, had an amber head that had qualities typical of an american lager. Very frothy, disappeared quickly, did not leave any lacing.

Smell was of corn and malt

Taste was very malty but had a very interesting spicy aftertaste. Almost a belgian spice.

Mouthfeel was very light similiar to budweiser or coors original

Not a beer I would buy again.
