So happy when I saw I could try a new beer in the cruise line. The beer looked great in color, but the taste was lacking
tasted a little flat to me. Seemed like a dark Budwesier.

I've enjoyed this ale several times on a couple of Carnival cruise ships. Most recently in December, 2015 aboard the Elation. A 19 oz. glass cost $5.95 plus gratuity. Probably the best alcohol buy on board the ship. Anyway, since I'm a lover of red ales this is much to my liking. Pours a nice head with lasting lace, drinks like most good ales, and is not too hoppy (which I especially like). Only problem is it not being available on all Carnival ships and usually at only one location on the ship. Makes for a long walk for a refill. I saw them changing kegs once and noticed the keg was labeled Anheuser-Bush so I made the assumption this is really Budweiser's American Ale under a private label.

I had this beer on a Carnival Cruise. Not the best but it works in a pinch.

Had this on the cruise boat and it was slightly hoppy and good for drinking out at sea.
