drowland (9057) - Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2017
5/14/17. On tap on Carnival Elation. Amber pour with a nice khaki head. Diacetyl in the aroma, mild caramel, grainy. Buttery flavor as well, dirty line maybe, grainy, caramel. Meh. Isn’t this just Amber Bock or some shit?

2.3
kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
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.

ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2013
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
Overall Impression: 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.

mkel07 (6385) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2012
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.

1.9
altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2016
On tap on board Carnival Festival. Yellow gold body with medium head. Nose is floral and citrus. Taste eggy, with malts and floral notes.

2.7
BelgianBeerGal (4156) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Draft on the Carnival Breeze. This was honestly better than expected although it was a low bar for a cruise ship gimmick. Thin profile with sweeter malt and light bitterness. Meh.

2.7
Headbanger (4021) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
Draft 1/30/14 (Carnival Glory)-Pours a clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was nothing to write home about.

2.8
Grumbo (3973) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Tap on board the Carnival Splendor. Pours red/brown with a lasting creamy off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and berries. Medium plus sweetness, light bitterness. Medium body, sticky creamy texture, soft carbonation.

2.3
rougeau13 (3188) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Tap on the Carnival Liberty. Clear amber. No head. Taste and smell like Budweiser aged on Fruity Pebbles. Light bodied. Weak.

2.8
hman43 (1773) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2013
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.
