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.

Very malty nose, and a bit grassy. Handsome hazy dark orange pour with thick retention. Mouthfeel is full, creamy, malty, I get a bit of a homebrew feel to this, and I don’t know what that means? Is it that it is a bit yeasty? I think so. Good!

Really good malt. Tasty and looks good. Leaves a bit of burnt aftertaste / something is off with the palate. Clean yeast flavors. Well done but flawed.

On tap, from the Yard House in Temecula, CA. Tastes just like Killians Irish Red, only a little more sour aftertaste. Slightly metallic taste. No head. Hazelnut aroma.

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Tap @ PD. Hazy amber pour with a persistent white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is nutty and malty, with a hint of pine hops. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Singed caramel, brazil nuts, toast and grapefruit. Finish is long, grapefruit and pine bitter, with a touch of caramel sweetness. Very enjoyable amber and a typically solid MR ale.

Good, solid. Citrus, floral hops on the nose. Nice chocolatey flavors mixed with the hoppy balance. A nice beer.

On tap pours dark red ,with a lot of head, smells of raisins and orange zest. Taste like malty red ale, with slight bitter aftertaste. Not a bad red.

Rich malt driven, toffee nose. Full palate, strong amber malts dominate. Nice drinker from the bottle a pint or two might get a bit chewy.

A very good red ale. It has an almost brown sugar taste and is very easy to drink. I really like reds and this is a very good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Virginia Trip – bottle 355 ml
Aroma soft front with mild sweets and hoppy top. Caramel touch with vanilla hinted by alcohol burn. Pleasant.7+
Appearance murky hazed amber with plus sized foam. Plenty of lace. 4-.
Flavor and Palate : Thinner bodied than expected. Frontal sharpness with metallic backing. Hops felt bit muted. Good not great.
