I ended up drinking several of these at Disney World because it was about the best beer I could find. A nice hoppy amber ale. Good malty taste with a nice citrusy hope presence as well.

Pours ruby/amber with thick off white head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is dominated by malt. Medium mouthfeel. Not bad.

On tap at the Seven Bridges brewpub in Jacksonville, FL and labelled as Seven Bridges American Red. I had this beer with my lunch on the return trip from Disney, and oddly enough, this beer’s rating is almost eactly the same as the three beers I drank on the way down. Anyway...arrived at the table a clear reddish amber with a moderate off-white head that faded to a ring at mid-glass and left a layer of foam with each sip. Aroma of malt with a few notes of pine. The flavor is malt up front followed by some pine and grapefruit. If I were blindfolded, I would swear this was an east coast IPA and not a red ale. Went well with my burger.

bottle. pours a crystalline red with a tall, long lasting off-white head. The aroma is sharp and astringent with hints of dough, caramel, berries, and chalk. This is pretty bitter stuff, but not in a good way. It cuts my palate with a chalky sting that fades to something like Twizzlers. On the upside some fruity and biscuity flavors make this quaffable, but I wouldn’t right home to mom about it.

12 oz. bottle via trade with decaturstevo - Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a 1/2 finger thick off white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is toasted caramel malt and light citrus. Flavor is basicly the same. Palate is slightly bitter and has a slight astringent aftertaste. A decent Amber ale. Thanks Steve.

nearbeer (5559) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2008
12 oz. Copper-red with a four-finger head that settles into a lasting, creamy ring that leaves a sugary sheet of lace on the glass. Aroma is at first big and juicy toffee malt, then some citrus-pine resin. Flavor follows the pattern:Big rich caramel malt flavor on front is slowly overtaken by some surprisingly stout resin and citrus. Some toasted nut flavor shines through a bit also. Soft, medium body is smooth and dryish on the finish. This is the only bottled G-B brew I’ve ever had, and is by far the best I’ve had of their stuff; usually not too impressed by their brews.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2008
bottle that is labeled Big River Red Ale, but mentions Rocket Red from the Disney location. Pours amber red with a thin white head. Hints of citrus hops in the nose but also a lot of crystal malts, sweet, sugary aromas. Somewhat hoppy, has a good bite, some sweet malts, and some citrus hop flavors, with a slight toasty finish. Not bad, easy drinking, but nothing special.

3.7
dchmela (3078) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2008
On tap at Disney’s Boardwalk. Pours dark red with a thick off white head. Hop grapefruit, pine, and malt aroma. Nice balance of the malt and hops in the taste. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness.
