Jamaica Brand Red Ale from Mad River Brewing Company
Next up is Mad River Brewing Company's Jamaica Brand Red Ale. Yes, more of my craft beer shipment.
This one is hard to judge to be honest. It reminds me a bit of Newcastle Brown Ale with a bit of Shiner's Bock mixed in, but this is one of those occasions where a beer reminiscent of others doesn't hit either mark. I also have no idea what makes this "Jamaican" but whatever.
The mouth feel is nice and it does go down smooth but the taste is really nothing all that exciting. Drinkable, so a solid 3 steins.
As an aside, Beer Advocate gives it an 87 score and The Bros give it a 97. Just didn't hit the mark with me.
