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.

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.

BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015
12oz tap pour in The Goat Hill Tavern. Costa Mesa, Orange County on 11th May 2015. Red hue to the brown body, off white head that faded fast in the cooled plastic tankard it came in. Semi-sweet caramel maltiness in the nose and taste with a mild bitterness just below the surface. A bit too cold for my palate, but a decent enough beer all the same.

Deep copper coloured, with a frothy head that clings to the glass. Smooth taste, not very strong flavour though.

Blairgus (3333) - California, USA - FEB 2, 2015
2 fen 2015, tap. Light Amber, clear, no bubbles. Nose is grassy hops and dry bread crust. Ned body and moderately fizzy. Acidic Amber malt and faint grassy hops. Some noticeable alcohol. Light bitter finish. Nice enough for an amber ale.

Hazy reddish brown with a one-finger head and spotty lace. Aromas of biscuit, citrus with a floral hops and caramel. The taste is bready malt, sweet toffee, honey, orange and some hop bitterness on the back end. Light to medium body, modest carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a sweetish finish.

loubar (154) - Los Gatos, California, USA - JAN 4, 2015
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Small, frothy, off-white head with fair lacing and diminishing longevity. Aroma of light molasses and malt. As in the nose, caramel malts dominate the flavor profile, leaving everything else to play complimentary roles. Hops, with hints of fruity esters, hit on a light citrus note before giving way to a distant orange pith bitterness that keeps it from becoming cloyingly sweet. Rich and tasty, yet easy to drink. A good all purpose ale.

Terminus (3349) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle-from the Beer of the Month club Pours deep amber hue with a small eggshell head with sparse lacing. Nose is very malty, lots of toasted, caramel, crystal malts here, maybe even some lite roasted malt. a hint of earthy hops there as well. Flavors are big huge malt up front-toasted, cracker, amber, caramel but big toasted malt flavor mostly-some decent earthy hops as well hwoever, this beer may have a tad bit of age on it. I think it had more hops when fresh. body is lush and slick with moderate carbonation. Long malty roasted toasty finish with lingering earthy/resinous hops. Decent amber here!

It's a smooth Amber. No bite at all with a slight bit of bitterness. Way better than the mass produced ambers out there. Could have a bit more carbonation.

Beer of month club. Pours a reddish brown with very little head. Faint nose of malt. Taste is malt, caramel, and a fair amount of bitterness on the finish. Good red ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
