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.

Solid red ale here. Big malty nose and flavor catch my attention. Probably my favorite out of the 12 beer sampler I got at the brewery. Lots of caramel and lightly roasted malts, LOTS! Good stuff.

on tap, Yardhouse. Pours a dark ruby color, quite attractive. Smell is of malt and fruits. Flavor is quite interesting: classic red ale sweeter malt + hop balance with fruit, but also features a subtle smokiness that adds character to this brew. Palate is light-medium. Finishes smooth and flavors linger on tongue. Flavors could have been bolder, but nice overall.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2008
On tap at the brewpub in Honolulu: Solid amber in color with some rich red tones running through. There were aromas of malt, caramel and a touch of citric hops. This continued into a medium-bodied beer with nice carbonation.

Taster - Kona Brewing Co. - Koko Marina Pub - Honolulu, Hawaii
2008 – Great Hawaiian Beer Run
Aroma – A light amber ale aroma this was weak.
Appearance – Amber reddish in color, nice head and clear.
Flavor – A light flavored amber ale. I was expecting this beer to give me a buzz on my tongue. Not even. Sorry go back re-brew.
Palate – Semi decent Mouthfeel, nice texture with a dry finish.
Overall – his beer was off and did not fall in the best of category. This was one of the worst I had all night. It still scored well but other beers where soooo much better. This beer was plain.

Mild malt and hops but not boring either. A good beer with food but nothing too exciting. Par for the style I guess.

I had this beer on tap at the brewery while I was on vacation there. Lavaman Red pours a predictable copper color that shines very nicely in the sun. The aroma is light and is primarily malty. The taste is heavily malty with a hint of chocolate in the background. There is a slight hop bitterness that helps to balance the malt. The beer is surprisingly light bodied for the maltiness but works well. Overall, I would say this is a great session beer.
