On tap at some Mexican restaurant near Kona. Started badly, finished better. Strangely much better with Mexican food, which made it start tasting like a rich fruity pale ale.

A middle of the road average red ale, maltier than most, almost a scotch ale. Decent for what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (4372) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle from a mix pack. Good bit of spicy caramel to the nose with some grains to it. Taste is a bit bitter, and seems like a fair amount of hops to it. Fine, but nothing special.

A decent red, but nothing special. Pours a nice clear Amber. Smells a bit of nuts. Taste is basic red, a little nutty with a bit of hops in the finish. Had on tap at the taproom on Oahu.
