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.

draught. Pours a blood red with a foamy white head. Theres a spicy aroma on this with a touch of yeasty sweetness. The flavor is a full spectrum of hops with a definite orange taste and a bit of ash. Fairly smooth none-the-less, but maybe a bit too strangely acidic. Theres a hint of caramel hidden in the finish. This is more like a bitter or maybe a pale ale than an amber.

Draught. Deep amber, hazy. Off white head. Nice flowery hop aroma. Great hop flavor and bitterness with caramel undertones. Delicious.

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 22, 2005
A much more hoppier nose than other ambers, although, i still can pick out a bit of caramel malt as well. Not much of a head created and the amber ale looks to be brown with reddish tint. In the drink some small notes of caramel sided by a fresh hop profile and strangely enough a minor coconut taste. An okay red ale and quite good for this style.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Nice mildly sweet and medium hoppy aroma. Almost opaque Amber color. Grapefruit peel bitterness and ample hop flavors. Mild malt and more citrus in the finish. I thought this was an exceptionally well done Amber.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Deep coppery red color with a mid sized light brown head. Citric hops show in the aroma. Some fruity flavors initially, peach and grapefruit followed up by some spicy hops and some caramel malt sweetness.

hayduke (5171) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle, in Arcata, CA. Rich ruby red coloor with nice head. Good malts and hops with a hint of fruit. Real easy to drink, and is one of those brews that somehow seems better than the sum of its parts. I tend to chalk this to good balance.

Draft at San Diego Brewing Co. Dark red color with a decent head. Citrus and other fruits in the aroma. Flavors of malt and a good amount of hops. Bitter to the end. A very nice beer.
