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.

(Draught) Sampled at the Empire State Brewing Festival 2004. Deep-orange coloured and cloudy body with an almond head. Nose and flavour is MEGA malty and hoppy - yet strangely balanced. Very amazing beer - I look forward to sampling this one again!

Sampled at Empire Brewfest. Slightly citrus aroma with maltiness noted. Chocolate hints. A nice balanced aroma. Hazy amber color with a light yellow head. Sweet, malty, hints of smoke, nice light hops to finish. This is very good and easy drinking. Probably the beer I enjoyed most from the festival.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2004 Re-rate: MUch better this time around. Nice frothy head and sweet orange aroma detected. Very tasty brew. Original - I believe I do not have the freshest of samples- however, it still tastes mighty good. The aroma was non-existent, as was the head. However, I liked the cloudy, reddish amber apperance. Nice malty flavor well balanced with PNW hops. A tasty treat - a fresh one I will find.

very tart nose, deep red body with a fluffy tan head, tart flavor as well as aroma, cherries, very acidic, malty with some slight bitters in the finish, the beer says "drink me", but the lable says "excuse me while I light my spliff".

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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2004
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.

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.
