2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz pour in plastic beaker, 5 o’clock Somewhere Bar, Margaritaville, Las Vegas, 31/10/13. Headless jelly red. Slightly inviting treacle, beef gravy hints, hazelnut aroma. Aggressive fizz without condition; cold rust and pecan-hinting caramel taste; shrub hints like a flat bock shandy or cheap tinned bitter from Lidl..

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brewed exclusively for Jimmy Buffet’s chain of "Margaritaville" restaurants by the makers of Bud. This is an amber ale for the masses-- served ice-cold, dark brown and heavily carbonated, you wonder whether they have brought you a pint of coca-cola by mistake. Very little aroma. Very little flavour as well, faintly caramel, with a dry finish. Overly carbonated. One was enough.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Margaritaville in Las Vegas. Clear amber, mild caramel malt. Not too bad, but far from interesting.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Lone Palm at Universal CityWalk in Orlando. Pours amber with a white head. Nose is unremarkable- malt, and a few hops. Flavor is about the same. Unremarkable. The fact that it is labeled an ale in a place where Landshark Lager dominates is SAD- and the only thing appealing about it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2008 The aroma has lots of caramel and a light hopping. The appearance is reddish tan with a thin head. The flavor is very heavy caramel and with light hops and toasted malt. The palate is thin with a nutty, sweet finish. Overall it’s very simple but good.

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.

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.

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.
