I doff my hat to Mad River Brewing for creating this Jamaican red ale which received a silver medal not long ago at The Great American Beer festival.

It poured a deep mahogany hue with a small condensed chest nut head. The smell was subtle, sweet malted grains and brown sugar were present.

The low level of carbonation complemented this beer well, oak fudge and earthy spices were dominant yet perfectly balanced with hints of citrus pine. A great overall beer that was initially brewed for a reggae festival!
