COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lavaman Red Ale is a malty, red ale with strong caramel notes and a subtle chocolate malt flavor. The pronounced maltiness is balanced by the delicate blend of Pacific Northwest hops resulting in a smooth, full-bodied beer.

A decent red, but nothing special. Pours a nice clear Amber. Smells a bit of nuts. Taste is basic red, a little nutty with a bit of hops in the finish. Had on tap at the taproom on Oahu.

Solid amber. Aroma of sweet bread up front. Nice malty richness. Balance in bitterness does the job. Ok session beer.

Draught at the Kona Brewing Co, Hawaii Kai, HI. Clear mahogany color with a small light tan head. Caramel sweetness, nougat, dark maltiness and sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is sweet caramel malt, some hops, chocolate and nougat. Quite nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Suitably red pour with a thin off-white head. Lots of caramel with some fruit and biscuit. Not my favorite Kona.

Basically your Irish-style red. Malty without much hop presence. Pretty simple hop dominated beer. Not bad,but not too great either.
