COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

oh6gdx (21621) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Bottled (AbM). Amber colour, small off-white head, which lasts for quite a good bit. Aroma is nutty, some biscuity and cookie like malts along with caramel and fudge. Also a slight wooden and resiny touch to it, but mostly big on the malty side. Flavour is very similar, but also has some slight toasted and chocolaty notes to go along with it. Balanced and quite tasty amber ale.

MichaelAwesome (5040) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2014
Not really a special one. Offering some malt and loads of caramel with a dull ending. Easily drinkable, sweetish, mediocre with some potential.

~Bready malt aroma with caramel and toffee, pleasant citrusy, piney hop character. ~Pours a slightly hazy amber color with lasting creamy off white head. ~Biscuity malt flavor with caramel and strong dose of earthy hoppiness. Well balanced, but slightly on bitter side. ~medium bodied medium CO2, lingering enjoyable earthy hop finish. ~Enjoyable Amber. Easy to drink, keeps my palate entertained without assaulting it with flavor. Would be happy drinking a few of these
