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.

Keg at Duke’s Beach House, Lahaina, 26/04/14. Clear reddish amber with a moderate off white swirl atop the glass. Nose is toasted malt, light toffee notes, mellow fruit, hint of orange. Taste comprises toasted bread, very light smoke, toffee, less fruit than on the nose, biscuit malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so, Ok for style.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2010 Sample at the brewpub in Kailua. The beer pours a dark amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Caramel malt and citrus aroma. Light body with flavors of sweet malt and caramel along with mildly bitter hops and citrus. The finish is earthy and malty and does not linger long. Slightly above average overall.

DruncanVeasey (7308) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Several mugs@BarAcuda, Hanalei, Kaua’i,27/08/12. Shining red, fizzy, cold with little head. Red jelly, berries, maybe cinder toffee aroma. Tunnel-like berries, chocolate orange, bit of barrel, generic nutty hints. Bit soapy. Alright.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 24, 2011
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.

On tap @ Kalapaki Joe’s in Kauai. Red-orange hue, average white head. Sweet caramel malts with a papaya-like hoppy fruit character and a moderately bitter finish. Not bad.
