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.

SHANER4 (480) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2010
On tap several locations in Hawaii - Poured dark amber color with medium off white head. Aroma - biscuity malt and mild floral hops. Light citrus scent and mainly alot of malt aroma Flavor - caramel malt and mild earthy yeast taste finishing up with touch of herbal hops. Palate - medium bodied with average carbonation. Finish is quick and little aftertaste! Overall - I had several of these during happy hour and thought this beer was ok. Its easy to drink with no offensive tastes.

Tap at the brewpub. Weak, bland flavor, a little caramel and a smidgen of hop, with some bandaid and cardboard flavor. Very dull.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2010
Description sounds much better than the beer I enjoyed. On draught at Leilani’s on Ka’anapali Beach. Clear amber colour with a creamy white head that bubbled away quickly. Aroma is caramel and hint of citrus. Taste is significantly unmalty, just a dry hopped amber that finishes bitter and unbalanced. The "pronounced maltiness" described...never occurred. Disappointing, but a drinkable, hoppy amber beer.

This beer holds a special place in my heart. After spending a good long time in Hawaii, this beer is always available on tap in local places, a constant choice for pitchers with buddies. Not much to the beer, caramel color with caramel flavors. Not much chocolate.
