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.

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.

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

Bottle from Wine Emporium 101214. Murky red looking beer with a decent head that stays for a while. Caramel, toffee and malt overpower the nose. Very full and thick in the mouth. Faint trace of bitterness in the finish.

atlrizzob (179) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2014
A very dark red hazy color. I passed this beer up many a time and it is actually very tasty. Hoppy and malty. Enjoyable thickness. A mad decent ale from Mad River.

Salmoniform (1006) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Copper red hue with fizzy white head that settled to a ring. Aroma is caramel, straw, rye, citrus oil. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is slight sweet with a bitter following and a dry peppery finish. Overall this is an ok brew.

Jado (575) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2014
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a tightly packed off white head. Aromas of fresh apple, apricot, caramel and malt. Taste is caramel sweetness at first before a crisp grapefruit zest bitterness washes through. Lingering bitter finish with a lightly sweet aftertaste. Well balanced - liked it a lot.

slowrunner77 (6090) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"a nice clean amber. nothing that will blow you away, but pleasant enough for a try, especially in the summer. a little on the malty side going in, with a ever so slightly hoppier finish. tends to be maltier..."

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Keg at the Library Alehouse, Santa Monica, 16/04/14. Clear chestnut brown with reddish hues topped by a moderate light beige covering. Nose is biscuit malt, caramel, brown sugar, sweet tones, candied fruit peel. Taste comprises biscuit malt, caramel, dark fruit rinds, light spice, brown sugar. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so, about as good as it is likely to get for this tedious style!
