On-tap at Animal Kingdom in Disney World, served in a 16oz plastic cup.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a decent-sized foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace.

S: The aroma is malty, but there isn’t much to it, maybe some tea and caramel.

T: The taste is bready with the flavor of caramelized malt, but it’s quite ordinary.

M: Not very crisp or smooth, medium body, medium-to-heavy carbonation, clean finish.

D: Not very flavorful, goes down easy because there’s nothing to it, and isn’t filling. It was better than Bud Light which was my other choice, but I’d rather drink just about anything else.

on tap at animal kingdom on my recent disney trip.

This poured a deep, dark amber, with a nice burnt reddish hue. nice one inch white head, gave way to a nice coating along the top of the glass. Not really any residual side glass lacing to speak of. Nice carbonation bubbles rippling up through from the bottom of the glass. The smell was very nice, lots of grains and cerals, with a hint of some caramel and a touch of bittering pine hops mixed in. A very light off fruit aroma could also be detected after a few minutes. The taste was very well crafted. A good malted back with a good deal of a hop character mixed in. I did not really detect much of a citrus taste at first, but subsequent sips showed this to be more pronounced then I had thought earlier. Very well balanced beer as no particular taste won out over another. Great feel, decent carbonation, but the feel was very smooth and effortless. A little slick, but not distractingly so, rather easy drinking. I could throw down a six pack of these with no time. Definatly a chugger. Overall this was damn fine, and the first steam beer I have had in quite a while. I will definatly be having another one of these in the near future. This was almost too good to pass up if I saw it. I really enjoyed it!

Amber in color with a half inch of tan foam resting on top. Light lacing. I smell amber malt and light breadiness. I taste amber malt that is a bit intense and cloying in the fade. Moderate carbonation and a light chewiness are present.

Appearance: Reddish amber with a thin white head that lingered. Mild lacing on the glass.
