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.

Tap. Pours a reddish amber with good off-white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Not much in the aroma...mostly malty. Flavor has hints of cherry, sugar, and malts. Somewhat sweet, but not overly so. Well balanced.

A wonderful red tinted beer and also smooth to drink a fine red ale to enjoy on a summer day in Hawaii.

On tap at Castaway. Red with minimal head. Minimal aroma. Malt character greed with more sips. Fairly nondescript. Not great. Not bad. Easy to drink. This is probably a good intro to microbrews for the Bud/Miller crowd.

Aroma is slightly spicy and pepper. Flavor taste a little watery. Reminds me of a big brew in quality. Not so good

Had at the Brewpub in KONA!!! The pour is a bright amber red in the body with a thick two finger yellowish head. A hop forward nose with a nearly nonexistant caramelly malt and a bit of citrus fruit. My first taste was a bit too grainy with a lightly citrus hopped taste. An aftertaste of light bitterness and an unusual herbal note. Overall, this is an okay brew.

Had it on tap at a hotel in Maui. If I had to describe it in a word, that word would be "average". The best thing it has going for it is its striking red appearance. It was definitely an eye-catcher. There was a slight hoppy aroma to it, but it was very faint. Taste was below-average. A very slight sweetness upon the beer initially hitting the tongue, but that quickly gave way to overpowering bitterness, with a very bitter finish. That might be some people’s cup of tea, but it’s definitely not mine.

Tap @ their Honolulu Pub... Poured deep amber, reddish with a thin white head. Citrus, piney hops mesh with a delicate malt balance. Clean finish with more hops creeping in. Straight forward.

Draft: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted caramel malty nose with a touch of earthy hops. Starts with good fullness and sweet toasty light caramel flavor with decent bittering hop balance before a smooth slightly drier finish. A pretty true to style and drinkable red ale, but nothing exceptional.
