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.

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

Bottle. Murky, fruity flavors. Definitely more malt than bitter. Tastes more like a fruity pale ale than a red ale.

JPDIPSO (5153) - 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.

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

Dark golden, thin head. Aroma is malty, and with some licorice. Flavor is fruity from cherry, malty and sweet.

BückDich (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.

muddy looking with a malty, sweet aroma. Taste is very malty, earthy, grassy with a sour finish.

(Bottle) Pours a dark cooper color with a medium-sized head. This one kind of caught me by surprise. Had a descent hop and spice flavor and a bountiful aroma.
