Named in honor of one of the best Big Wave Surfing areas in the world, and the man who first surfed it, Jeff Clark. Mavericks is a robust American amber ale with rich malt and fresh hops in perfect balance. Full bodied and refreshing! Our signature brew

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Dark amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some toffee, caramel and grass notes. The flavor is full of toffee, caramel, graham cracker, honey and cocoa. Overall it is very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

bytemesis (5195) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Tap. I am not usually a fan of amber ales, other than the hoppy red IPA type, but this one ain’t too bad! Pours clear red amber with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is caramel and toffee dominated, just a touch of hoppy nose in there as well. Flavor is the same with a touch of pine. Lightly sweet, minimal bitterness. Medium body.

Bronzan (135) - Windsor, California, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pours a deep, dark amber...almost coppery red. Smells of coffee, very malty. Has a nutty, burnt taste to it. Fairly decent amber ale...just not my favorite style.

GothGargoyle (1888) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2013
Relatively clear brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma is toffee, hazelnut, chestnut, damp grain. Relatively light bodied with a slight creaminess, bitter on the palate with a slight toffee background, lingering bitterness in the finish with a slightly mineral aftertaste. Taste is toffee, burnt sugar, chestnuts, hazelnut, grapefruit peel, hint of pine.
