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, 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.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2011
On tap at The Monk. Pours amber with some red tinges. Decent white head is left behind. Pine and caramel malts make up the nose. Some citrus and pine come through in the taste. Nice caramel malt backing that lingers. Very drinkable. Good but nothing wows me
