A rich, copper ale with a case full of gold medals. Our Calico Amber Ale 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.

On tap. Slightly hazy golden color. Good foamy off-white head leaving plenty lace. Light carbonation, light body, dry texture. I normally don’t care for ambers, and less for reds, but this is actually pretty enjoyable. Light toasty bread and light spice aroma, some discernible hops in there to keep it interesting. Nice mix of sweet and bitter taste. Enjoyable, tasty brew.

mcmisko (354) - New York, USA - APR 17, 2012
Pours rich copper color with a two finger tan head with good retention. Smells like hops and citrus. Taste a caramel malts, and good hop bitterness with citrus notes. Med body. After taste is bitter, and a little watery. Good ale for hop lovers.

On tap at Money Plays. Pours a dark amber with thick creamy white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel with light hop and raisin malt with a light bitter finish. Very good amber and easy to drink from Ballast Point.

12oz bottle. Looks amber. Aroma of caramel malts and a strong amount of citrusy hops for the style. Flavor the same. Pretty standard texture but way more flavor than most beers of the style.

Smells hoppy, some citrus. Aroma of malt. Pours red with good head and lacing. Best beer so far in Puerto Rico but then again I just got here. Tastes bitter. Bottle from Stop and Go in San Juan.

Bottle from Brewdog. Pours dark golden/amber with a big creamy egg white head. Aroma is full of malts, caramel and bread. Taste is moderate sweet malty, with a nice hoppy end, mints and herbal hops. Smooth and clean mouthfeel, weak oily.

lamas (1494) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle. Different label than that in the picture. Enjoy by: 02/28/13. An amber/ruby pour with a finger-thick antique white head. The aroma features plenty of caramel, a rich breadiness, raisins, wet cardboard, and some pine. Solidly medium-bodied. Caramel, plenty of toasted bread, and a rich graininess upfront taste-wise. A biscuity middle. Kinda earthy at the end. Solid for the style.

Scipio (761) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Pours a clear, darker amber with a medium white head. Aroma is balanced well and contains floral hops, toffee, pine, and some citrus grapefruit. The taste has a good amount of citrus, being mostly grapefruit and hints of lemon and orange. In addition, I find caramel and yeast. Its bitter, with a piney citrus grapefruit aftertaste. Medium bodied, sticky in texture, with a lot more lively carbonation than I was expecting. This is pretty good. Its tasty and easy drinking.
