COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was originally brewed for a famous Reggae festival that happens each year here in Humboldt County. A malty bitter American Amber style ale. This mahogany hued ale brings an intense spectrum of hop flavors from the spicy aromatic to lingering bitter, all underscored by a full- bodied caramel richness. Try this brew with a little Jamaican Jerked Chicken.

I grabbed this beer first figuring it would be the crappy one of the bunch. Proving once again that the look of a bottle can be deceiving. This beer is really damn good - this is one I could see myself drinking on a regular basis.

Bottle. Sweet cola flavours, with some nutty caramel. Pretty sweet and thin. Even not knowing anything about the beer of the brewery, i still didnít expect much, donít know why that is.

Nice red color. Sweet taste, fruity esters. Slight bitter. Not a bad beer, but nothing special.

worldleadr (56) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Bottle. Murky, fruity flavors. Definitely more malt than bitter. Tastes more like a fruity pale ale than a red ale.

JPDIPSO (5045) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Thought I was picking up the IPA, the labels are too similar. Protein inflicted amber/brown color with a moderate ecru head. Sweet aromas of tropical fruit and light bananas, reminds me a bit of fruit punch with a light chocolate malt tint. First sip reveals loads of fresh mowed grass... I continue to chew or graze as it may be. Light chocolate, caramel and a zippy hops bite come later. Late maltiness provides a respite from the menagerie of aromas and flavors. This one really is all over the place.

obxdude10 (2111) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Not a bad amber ale although it seemed more like an APA, hazy brown in color, very minimal head, malty nose, a decent amount of hops in the flavor ofset by a good malt profile, tasted more like a pale ale than an amber ale, still very drinkable & still a decent beer

veronika (410) - SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2004
Dark golden, thin head. Aroma is malty, and with some licorice. Flavor is fruity from cherry, malty and sweet.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Pale amber color with a light off-white head. The aroma is lightly caramelly and light. The flavor is balanced but boring, standard; cookie-cutter. Finishes well with a nice hop bite following through. Decent.

Bottle; different- licorace-meets malt type thing. very interesting.. is this an attempt to duplicate Red Stripe?
