2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap on a Carnival cruise. Pours a deep amber with thin off white head. Little to no aroma. Malty sweetness with not much of a finish. Pretty average but more flavor than I would expect from AB.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Enjoyed this on the Carnival Pride over the summer. Not very complex or heavy, but very drinkable with a hint of fruit - almost tropical. A surprisingly good beer, especially while on the pool deck on a cruise ship in the Caribbean.

I drank this aboard the Carnival dream on 11/28. I had a fairly decent malty aroma. It had a light head and an light amber color. The blend of malts and overall flavor was decent.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Location: Draft on a Carnival ship, 7/8/13
Aroma: The nose was an over-the-top sweet mess, caramel and residual sugars
Appearance: It poured a reddish color with a beige head, the standout portion of the beer
Flavor: The taste, like the nose, is a mess of sweet malts and off flavors with no balance
Palate: The body was light-medium, with a watery, macro-like feel
This one was a complete and total mess, crazy sweet, and basically just terrible. Drain pour level bad. Needless to say, I only has one.

Very good red ale, The only beverage worth purchasing on my Carnival Dream cruise in March. Being stranded in St. Maarten wasn’t so bad after all.

A Carnival hajók hivatalos söre, a leírás szerint az egyik hajón működik a főzde. Csapolva elérhető csak.
A vörös sör jó választás volt a hajóstársaság részéről. Alternatívát adott a fedélzeten fellelhető BUD Light és hasonló "minőségű" amerikai tömegsöröknek.
Íze sajnos nagyon édes, nehézkes volt, így nem lett a kedvencem. Inkább a kikötőkben elérhető helyi karib söröket kóstolgattam.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear amber body with a mimimal fizzy beige head. The nose is a little sweet with a little caramel, toasted malt, and a hint of corn, slightly grainy. The flavor is overly sweet with too much corn flavor to make it a passable attempt at a craft brew. Reminds me a bit of Yuengling Lager in that sense. Lingering sweetness on the finish unfettered by any bitterness makes for a not so wonderful combination. Light to medium bodied with a bit too much clingy stickiness from the residual sweetness. A decent deal as far as the ship goes, a bit cheaper and larger than most of the other macro crap options.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served on-tap on Carnival Destiny. Bartender gave a very gentle pour that left no head whatsoever, but brought the beer up to the very edge of the glass. Very nice amber/red in the glass with faint bready/malty aroma going on. Understated bitterness at first, leading to a malty sweet finish. Not particularly noteworthy and not something I would have on the shore, but for $5.50 a pint in a world where a bottle of Bud Light goes for $6.75, this should be the go-to drink for anyone craving a solid beer on a cruise.
