A robust red ale that combines a rich deep malty flavor from our British Crystal malt, with a classic hop bitterness from the large dose of Cascade hops. An aggressive ale brewed for the beer connoisseur.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2006 Disney Boardwalk. On Tap. Everything a red should be, this is smooth silky version with ample hops (perhaps more than usual for the style) and a nice spicy quality. Malt is slightly sweet but backs off quickly towards the finish. The nose is full of caramel malt. Great with a burger.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Wow I found me some lost beer notes so here it goes... A dark amber color with a large head. Flavor is quite hoppy especially for a beer labeled an amber ale. A nice malt profile that makes this a very well balanced beer. Overall a good beer and it’s what a good session ale should taste like.
Earlier Rating: 8/24/2003 Total Score: 3.6
Appearance is amber as you would expect. Aroma is somewhat hoppy with a load of malt. Flavor is fairly complex with the malt and hop flavor balancing out well. Refreshing out in the 100 degree heat. Another good beer from Big River.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2004
On tap at Boardwalk in Disneyworld. A nice, mildly hoppy ale. Good balance between malt/hops. A little thin mouthfeel, carbonation was very light. Good session beer.

willblake (2652) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Tap, EPCOT, 3/04. Cloudy amber/red with foamy head that lasted nicely. Good looking beer. Strong cascade aromas, mild, but pungent. Nice malt front and hop back that balances well. Melons and underripe pears, caramel. Yum! Crisp, smooth, slightly astringent finish, too.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Draft... Rating #1100... Crystal clear and as deeply copper as a freshly minted penny. Small, creamy, off-white head with terrific lacing and great retention. The nose is malty and hoppy with notes of broth, horse blanket, straw and jalapeno pepper. Some floral hops as well. Carefully bittered flavor with notes of grapefruit rind and alcohol. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. Quite good!

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2003
Big River-Boardwalk-Epcot Center. This beer had a medium sized tan head that contained fine sized bubbles that quickly and completely dissipated. The nose was lightly malty and moderately hoppy with a bitter and hoppy flavor that had an aftertaste. The mouthfeel was smooth and bitter and this was a medium bodied beer with fair lacing.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 75. This draft brew was sampled at the brewery on the Boardwalk at Disneys Epcot Center attraction near Orlando Florida. This brew poured a large head of foamy finely sized light brown colored long lasting bibbles that left behind a poor lace and atransparent light brown colored uncarbonated body. The aroma was that of a simple malt hop one and the mouthfeel was initially smooth with a malt hop biting finish. The flavor contained notes of mild caramel malt and hops.

Pours a dark amber color with a medium head. Thin lacing. Good for an amber, but still average for a beer. Aroma and flavor exhibit a bit of citrus and hops, good maltiness as well.

nice, big and hoppy. funny that this is explicitly made for beer geeks (so it says on the beer menu). interesting? maybe not but straight forward beer goodness. bushy and light carmel sweetness. beauty.
