Ale Camino is named after El Camino Real, The Historic Route 101 which runs along the California Central Coast. El Camino Real translates as "The Road," "The Journey," or "The Way." Tap It Brewing Co. is located just off this historic route in the city of San Luis Obispo, and its where this family-run company brews their extraordinary hand-crafted beers. You can taste the Journey, and the way of passionate artisanal brewing in every sip. Ale Camino is an American style Amber Ale hand-crafted with a blend of malt and hops, which give it a truly unique character. The aroma blends sweet malts, a hint of chocolate, and a light earthy nose that highlights the malty aromatics. Ale Camino has a round and full-bodied flavor, full of sweet malts, chocolate malts, crystal malts, and hop varieties Willamette and Zythos added for minimal bitterness and aroma, hand-crafted together for a rich, complex flavor and aroma. This amber finishes with a clean, semi dry and light hoppy finish.

Rating #2195 - 2015.11.29 - 6pack from CBI - this was a backup for the CBAC in 2016. Clear amber/toffee coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a strong citrus/floral hoppy aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Hoppy punch and a marbley-malty sweet note. Delicious.

Boring and bland. Pours a mellow golden amber with a thin off white head. Mild hops, mild malts, noting much going on here. Clean and refresing with a big a bittenress to satisfy me taste.

bnoel09 (582) - Elk Grove, California, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Poured from the 12oz bottle into a shaker glass. Very dark amber edging on mahogany with a thin cream colored head. Aroma is pale and caramel malt with some light roast. Flavor is semi-sweet and nutty with mild bitterness. Medium bodied. First amber I've had in quite some time but this is pretty decent.

12oz brown bottle. Unclear orange appearance. Nice beige head. Aroma has caramel malts. Taste has grains, caramel and chocolate. Some bitterness at the end. Soft bodied and easy to drink. Pretty nice amber ale, I like this brewery.

reebtogi (5754) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and light fruits with some herbal notes. Taste is a light fruity and caramel malty sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness and a dry finish. Light bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall, a fruit and malt forward amber ale that is decent, but nothing really stands out.
