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.

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.

Sampled on tap at the brewery in Kona, Hawaii. The beer was a somewhat clear, glowing, bright red-amber color with a small, tan, bubbly white head that was short lived. It was very wet and sweet with a fruity taste; almost too sweet. The carbonation was low to average with some fizzyness, and a medium body. A decent beer, but a bit too heavy on the sweetness.

Deep red beer. Malty. Some hops noticable. Good even flavor. Not bad but a fairly typical beer.

Draft at Yardhouse in Waikiki. Decent hoppy aromas off this red ale with a decent head. Flavors were pretty good to with a toasted malty and less than hoppy flavor.

ElGaucho (2206) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Draught at Vino Italian Tapas & Wine Bar located at Kapalua Village Golf Course. Relatively faint aroma with a hint of hops and a hint of malt. Dark copper with steady carbonation and a small, off-white head. Tastes a lot like Keoki Sunset. Relatively dry with solid hop profile. Not so dry as to be unbalanced, however. Also reminds me a bit of Summit EPA. Enjoyable though not spectacular.

This reddish-amber ale poured with a frothy off-white head. The flavor is malt-based with a sharp hoppy finish. Well-balanced and tasty.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2006
On tap at a poolside bar in paradise, on my recent visit to Maui. Pours out a clear reddish amber color with a small thin head. Aroma was of some floral hops with some sweet malt notes. Mouthfeel was a bit watery. Flavor was decent with some bitter hop notes and some grassy notes here and there mixed with some sweet tastes almost like a nutty honey flavor. Finishes with a harsh bitterness. Not bad but not great.
