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.

DYCSoccer17 (3683) - 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.

rikstar (2555) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2017
0,33l fles gedeeld met bryan. Erg bruin voor een red ale, smaak ligt ook meer in de cacao hoek die bij een donker bier past. Goed te drinken.

imdownthepub (14221) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Bottled, 355ml from BeerMerchants in Kent. Amber with off white head. Good looking beer in the glass, on drinking there is a sweetish caramel character from the start, not overbearingly so though. Fruity, peachy then plummy notes, just a hint of resin. Decent depth. The beer is quite pleasant.
