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.

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 (5062) - 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.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
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.

Good caramel malt notes with some mild raost hints. Good conditioning tight head. some mild fruits green apple orange zest and apricot. with good balanced bittering. Some mild citrus and pine hops in the nose, less on the palate. Clean and soft finish showing some caramel and citrus.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2005
From the bottle this brew pours a slightly hazy red with a tall off-white head. Aroma has a blend of dusty malts and mild hops. Fruit malt start with an almost rotten apple tart taste to the finish. Very bitter in the finish with more residual rotten apple in the aftertaste.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Pours deep ruby in color with a head that is colossal in size and tumoric (Yes, I made up that word) in its falling. Well balanced aroma that shows a bit of malt (caramel, biscuit and fruit) and hops, which are most likely Centennial or Chinook, or a combination of both, which brings a touch of spicy characteristics and citrus to the aroma. Flavor is uniquely enjoyable with malt flavors of caramel and biscuit and a lovely hop flavor and bitterness. This Mad River beer, like the Scotch Porter, is suprisingly good.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Poured dark cloudy brown with a small head and light lacing. Aroma of malt and fruit. Flavor is fruity, malty, nutty. Almost a bit to sweet for me, but not to bad overall.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Very very cloudy body with a lot of solids in it. Deep red color. The aroma is amazingly fruity, especially compared to the flavor. I was worried when I first smelled it. It ended up being a surprisingly balanced, decently hoppy red ale with a strong citrusy flavor. Much better than I expected from the smell. Not what Id associate with Jamaica, though -- this is not a warm weather beer.
