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

As with the other reviewers have said this is an enjoyable brew in a location that makes for an amazing experience. very tasty brew for a theme park, I'll definantly be enjoying this on our next visit to the park.

I can't believe I'm ticking a beer at Harry Potter World in Universal Orlando, however, that's the only place in the world that one can tick this particular brew, so there you have it.

I have to admit that when I found out that Universal commission this brew by the Florida Brewing company to be a theme park exclusive, I was more than a little impressed. Heck, one doesn't go to these stroller dodging extravaganzas for the suds!

Served in a "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" plastic cup... Ugh.

A: Moderate brown color with a soft, clear amber effervescence. The head was mild and basically insignificant.

S: Malty, but not a Scottish bomb (which I appreciated). A bit of caramel gave this some character.

T: Definitely not on the Wee Heavy side of the Scottish spectrum. This was crisp, clean, malty, and not too complex... But it wasn't intended to be.

M: On the lighter side, but still full enough. The lacing was moderate and the carbonation was fine.

O: It's common knowledge that it get's pretty frigging hot in Orlando, and I felt this was pretty drinkable considering the circumstances. I've always felt and still feel that the atmosphere when drinking a brew plays a large role. I looked out to my left and saw HogwArts castle, to the right was Olivander's Wand shop, and sitting at the table with my was my beautiful Princess of a wife enjoying a beer with me. Amazing times....

A - Clear mild red. Poured with a slight head that quickly dissipated.

S - slightly biscuity.

T - malts, with a little bit of hops.

M - Slighty thin, a little flat.

O - Pretty good beer for an amusement park. Would have been nice to have it in a real glass instead of a plastic cup.
