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, it’s the American hops that give this ale a distinct bite and floral aroma that have earned it just about every major beer medal.

Bottle at home. Pleasant caramel malty and citrus. Moderately bitter. Really enjoyable. Can I just say, thanks for telling me about Lost on the river, Andy. I can’t get enough of the album :D

Darwenus (904) - 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 it’s welcome.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - 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

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Draft at The Answer, thanks to Spies for the sample. Poured a clear medium amber, decent head. Aroma of caramel accented malts and light citrus hops. Flavor a match. Certainly not as bland as a lot of Ambers, but coming from Ballast Point I had hoped for a bit more hop assertiveness. But not a bad beer. Just wanted more oomph.

Tognetta (740) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 12, 2015
Âmbar avermelhado, boa formação de espuma (bege) e média retenção. Aroma de dulçor caramelo, malte bastante presente, inicialmente prazeroso, mas ficou um pouco metálico e resinal com o aumento da temperatura, até certo ponto desagradável quando agitado. É no paladar que aparece o amargor, de leve/média intensidade, dulçor leve caramelo, notas amadeiradas. Corpo médio, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste perde um pouco do amargor inicial, mas mantém uma boa combinação de malte/amadeirado/lúpulo/caramelo.
