How do people give this (or any beers from universal) anything higher than a 3? Had on tap at the hog's head pub. Poured clear amber with slight lacing. Not much going on smell-wise. Tastes like significant biscuit malts with malt extract. Lack of body, when foreigners diss american beer as being "flavored water", this is what they mean. Overall, not as bad as the wizard's brew porter but not something I'd get again.

Had this on draft from the Hog's Head Pub in Universal Studios.
Poured a amber to light read body with a thin amount of head.
A slight aroma of spicy cedar to caramel; which are faint at best
Taste is much better than I expected! A spiciness from the malt and a nice smooth finish.
Nice light mouth feel to this which works well on a hot Florida day at the park.
Overall, a really decent beer that I am glad I tried, if you visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Hogsmeade stop by the Hog's Head and have this beer!

Look--it looks like a light lager or some pale brew that got an orange glow. Pleasant and interesting.
Smell--tangy, nothing distinctive
Taste--that tangy vibe from the smell plus malt. Nothing else that I'm getting--maybe caramel.
Feel--light to medium bodied, pretty damn carbonated.
Overall--this was better than I expected. It's marketed as drinkable, and that's exactly what it is. If you're at Universal in Orlando, you should be drinking this.

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.
