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. jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Pours ruby/amber with thick off white head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is dominated by malt. Medium mouthfeel. Not bad. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2008
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. kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2008
(draught - Disney Boardwalk) red - brown with off white head. Crystal malt and citrus hops aroma. Flavor is malt with some hops. 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. 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.
