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.

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

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.

a little too thick and sweet on the palate for me to really enjoy. Very malty.

Pours a very nice ruby hue. Big off white head. Malt and bittering hops in the nose. More of the same in the flavors. Nice.

Wow what a surprise it is to see when poured into my mug..a nice dark brown with a huge creamy off white head..quite "murky " too! Very pungent aroma to this ale..hops but also a wonderful light chocolaty aroma. mmm nice taste starts of sweet malts..then a hoppy zing..then a strange yet attractive sourness..I like this. Very nice on the palte lingering aftertastes. Great drinkable beer..but my its hard to place this in a particular style..it says on the side of the label it is a "Crisp,hoppy Red-Bitter"..well thats as good a deScription as any..a hybrid..but a nice beer!
