Another Bud product pretending to be a good micro. Slightly malty profile and amber color. Low presence of hops came through as I finished this beer. Nothing to write home about. On tap at Margaritaville in LV.

The best option at Margaritaville in Las Vegas and much better than Landshark. Anyway, pours a coppery color with a white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy and earthy, but not too much so. Flavor is pretty average, easy to drink and not think about.

On tap at Margaritaville at City Walk in Orlando. Pours a translucent amber with an average creamy/bubbly off white head. Aroma of noble hops, some citrus notes a touch of toffee and toasted malts. Flavor of mixed citrus, some nuts, toffee and a touch of hop bitterness and toasted/bready malts.

19oct07. Draft at Margaritaville, LV. Amber color, tan head. Aroma of malts. Taste’s like a Killian’s. Watery palate. The better ale of the place.

Draft at Margaritaville. Pours out amber color with little head. chill of beer negates much of the aroma. Taste is malty with a touch of roasted malt. Nothing special, but on a hot day in florida its kind of refreshing.

Had at Margaritaville. Step up from Landshark, but that isn’t saying too much. Amber color, moderate white head. Caramel on the aroma. Overall decent, has some flavor which is always a good thing

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 Looks, smells, and tastes suspicously like Michelob Amber Bock - another Anheiser Busch product. I’m convinced it’s the same exact beer, just repackaged for Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville chain. With that being said, it’s a decent beer. Nothing special, but not bad. Dark red, very thin head yet drinkable and sweet. Almost a little syrupy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Consumed on the Porch of Indecision, Margaritaville, Universal, Orlando. From a damn fine tall pils glass with a parrot on it. Clear, walnut colored brew. Malty, but dry, nuts, caramel. My guess on this was a brown ale, rather than an amber. This was a well-balanced brew, nothing much standing out. You could drink a mess of it. Medium body, Finishes quickly.

Virginia Beer festival. Honestly this wasn’t that bad of a brew - all things considered. Redish in oclor, with heavy caramel and hops aromas. Flavor was much the same.
