COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, copper ale with a case full of gold medals.
Our California Amber takes its inspiration from traditional English ESBs. Four types of malts give it a bold complexity, and our proprietary yeast strain lends it a fruity, madeira-like richness. However, itís the American hops that give this ale a distinct bite and floral aroma that have earned it just about every major beer medal.

Draught @ Taproom No307. Reddish copper color with small foamy beige head, fruity caramel aroma, low carbonation, sweet fruity taste, very little hops effect, long sweet finish. Too sweet and fruity for my taste.

Muito saborosa e equilibrada. Os lúpulos marcam presença com um amargor médio e um aftertaste perfeito.

From the tap the pour is clear and a beautiful red to dark auburn color with an off white head, the aroma is malts clean and hints of vanilla, the taste is Carmel malts work a good balance of hops, the mouthfeel is thin, overall a great amber beer

Darwenus (865) - Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2015
A tasty amber ale, not as good as other Ballast Point brews, but not bad. Pours bronze color, medium carbonation and head. The aroma is citrus and honey, and the flavor is more of the same. Never wore out itís welcome.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Keg, Leicester Dog. Deep bronze heavily freckled with white. Watery after a Dog with limp soggy peach and sponge notes, hints of chipshop batter, iced tea and rose water. A bob of cherry Tune. Aroma of red boiled sweets, possibly cherry Tunes, grenadine and candle wax. Low condition. No finish. Bland to the pitch of an alcohol free like Nanny State with all the freshness and flavour sucked. Beyond Indifferent.

Dark amber with thick creamy head. Toffee malt aroma. Big, thick mouthfeel taste with a good hit of citrus & piney hops balanced with full bodied malt. A rich beer especially considering the ABV. Rated by BrewTom
