This beer is brewed by the Florida Beer Company for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure in Orlando. Available only at the Hogsmeade pub/restaurant in the theme park.

Pours a clear ruby brown with a small tan head in the damn plastic cup they served it in. Head falls to nothing, small lace.

Mild malt aroma with a bit of hop. Not too much going on here but I guess I didn't expect too much.

Tangy taste. Malts and slight hop bitterness. Nothing really stands out.

Thin to medium bodied with decent carbonation.

Not bad. Better than most options at Universal. Worth a try.

Had this beer at Harry Potter World at Universal Orlando, paired with a smoked turkey leg. First off the serving size was huge compared to what I expected. A very easy beer to drink. A beer that most can enjoy on a hot and cold day alike. Would recommend to anyone visiting the park.

Id guess the ABV is around 5-6%

Very easy to drink, not too bitter, not too light

A: Pours a clear reddish amber with moderate carbonation. Didn't catch the head on the pour but am guessing that it probably a finger of head that dissipates pretty quickly and a creamy topper remains. Decent lacing.

N: Mostly biscuit with a hint of roastiness.

T: Strong biscuit throughout with some roasty brown sugar and a hint of cocoa. Finishes with slight hints of floral hops.

M: Light bodied, smooth and dry.

O: A pretty solid beer and probably the only thing worth drinking in Universal Studios.
