I had the chance to visit Big River during a conference at Disney. This beer poured a clear goldern with white head that did not leave much lace. The scent had touch of biscuit. The taste was a nice balance of the scent with some sweetness. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Had this as part of the sampler.
It is what it is! It's a light lager.
Wasn't expecting much; you get what you get an easy drinking lager which is better than your Coors LIght Bud LIte offerings.
Would I get again? Probably not. Is it a decent offering for what it is? Yes.

Served on tap at the Big River Bar & Grille (Disney) in Lake Buena Vista, FL.

A: Pours a crystal clear straw yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall white head that quickly fades to a patch of extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal lacing is observed.

S: This beer has a very mild aroma and it was not the easiest to pick up with the other aromas around. I detected some grainy/cereal malts and just a hint of grassy hops.

T: Like the smell there is a very mild flavor to this beer including cereal malts, corn adjunct malts, and some very light grassy hops. Neither too bitter or too sweet, this beer is well balanced.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: This beer was very easy to drink and is infinitely sessionable at the very low ABV. On a hot early summer afternoon/evening, this beer was very enjoyable and refreshing. Not a bad offering for the style, which does not happen to be one of my favorites.

It is what it is. Advertised as light, and light it is. Typical light beer characteristics including a light straw color, fizzy light body and minimal flavour profile. There are hints of lemon, husky grain and a bit too much astringency. Above average light beer that should appeal to the appropriate audience.

A - A very pale golden straw color... A very thin white head quickly fades leaving no discernable lacing... Some mild carbonation...

S - Uninspired... Grainy malts... A very minor hops presence... You almost need to stick your nose entirely into the glass to pick up any noteable aroma...

T - Cereal, namely rice krispies... Corn... Some faint grassy notes... Just the ever so slight presence of muted Liberty hops...

M - Light bodied... Slightly thin and watery... Fizzy...

D - A definite step up from the typical BMC products, but not much more than that... The 3.6% ABV certainly makes it sessionable, but I'm not sure that the taste would leed me to wanting more than one...

On tap at the Disney World Board Walk location.

Poured a lighter, and see through (clear) straw color with a small sized white head. Aromas of light grass. Tastes of grass with some malts. I had to struggle to get much out of either the aroma and taste. Thin and watery body.
