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.

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2008
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is sweet with notes primary notes of over ripe fruits as well as a light touch of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of over ripe peaches and prunes, leading to a dry slightly bitter finish. The body is too light, but the aroma and flavor reminds me of a Barley Wine. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2002
Bottled. Dark red, little head. Roasty, orangey aroma. Sweet, rather malty with soapy mouthfeel. Intenseely hoppy with lingering bitter finish. The bottle says ’Produce of USA’. No really?! This overhopped and one-dimensional ale is like the prototype of the arrogant American ales. I like it!

11th October 2008. GABF. Clear broen beer. Crisp palate. Quite malty, left me with the impression it wants to be a barleywine when it grows up!

On tap at Stone 17th anniversary party. Dark amber in color, clear, and with a small light beige head. Rather boring aroma and flavor, some pleasant hoppy notes though, as well as caramel hints and a little hint of lightly roasted malts. Medium body, quite dry. Decent finish. A quite boring one, can’t understand what it is doing in this company. 130816

Looks like I’ll have to jump in to defend this substantial amber ale, with lots of malt and a good bitterness as well.

(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.
