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.

3fourths (9203) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Billowing sandy head atop a dark red and brown body. Skunky, grassy malt aroma, quite starchy. Metallic and blood-like aroma as well... the taste is a little fishy with some maple malt and plum flavors... hoppy but without any sweetness. Graham crackers and wood are very pronounced.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Nice red color,small off white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was light malt with maybe some hints at fruit and hops.The flavor was malt and fruity with a decent hop presence and decent mild bitterness at the end.Nothing special but worth another try at some later time.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2004
(Draught) Sampled at the Empire State Brewing Festival 2004. Deep-orange coloured and cloudy body with an almond head. Nose and flavour is MEGA malty and hoppy - yet strangely balanced. Very amazing beer - I look forward to sampling this one again!

DYCSoccer17 (3649) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Sampled at Empire Brewfest. Slightly citrus aroma with maltiness noted. Chocolate hints. A nice balanced aroma. Hazy amber color with a light yellow head. Sweet, malty, hints of smoke, nice light hops to finish. This is very good and easy drinking. Probably the beer I enjoyed most from the festival.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2004 Re-rate: MUch better this time around. Nice frothy head and sweet orange aroma detected. Very tasty brew. Original - I believe I do not have the freshest of samples- however, it still tastes mighty good. The aroma was non-existent, as was the head. However, I liked the cloudy, reddish amber apperance. Nice malty flavor well balanced with PNW hops. A tasty treat - a fresh one I will find.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2004
very tart nose, deep red body with a fluffy tan head, tart flavor as well as aroma, cherries, very acidic, malty with some slight bitters in the finish, the beer says "drink me", but the lable says "excuse me while I light my spliff".

I grabbed this beer first figuring it would be the crappy one of the bunch. Proving once again that the look of a bottle can be deceiving. This beer is really damn good - this is one I could see myself drinking on a regular basis.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2004
Bottle. Sweet cola flavours, with some nutty caramel. Pretty sweet and thin. Even not knowing anything about the beer of the brewery, i still didnt expect much, dont know why that is.

Nice red color. Sweet taste, fruity esters. Slight bitter. Not a bad beer, but nothing special.
