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.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 On tap at Kona Koko Marina. Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. Nose is fruity hops and sugar. Flavor is a little weak and not much of a finish. Mouthfeel is not bad.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 19, 2008
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.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUN 4, 2008
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.

Draft. Reddish body, small head, malty nose with fruity hop notes. Moderately hopped, with a pleasant fruity flavor.
