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.

Draught on board Carnival Splendor. This fine amber ale is only available on board selected Carnival cruise ships. Pours a coppery red colour with a low beige head. Strong malt and caramel aromas are very pleasant as is the flavour.
