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

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Poured from a twelve ounce into a tulip, shes a moderately hazy brown brew, with a large two-inch khaki head with a long life and moderately dense lacing. Aroma is malty sweet caramel with some toastiness. The hop aroma is overall subdued, but generally resinous until the head falls, when light spiciness is evident. One swig and its obvious that shes a deeply malty brew: Like caramel and toffee poured over granola. The hop taste is very low (some citrusy spiciness), though the bitterness is mild in the middle and moderate in the finish. Its all well masked by the malt. She doesnt weigh too much on the palate, but Id say a couple notches below thin syrup--about moderate body. An impressive amber ale, not for hopheads (for flavor or aroma), but a well balanced malty-bitter ratio for the style, tending towards malty. Mmm, caramel in beer form.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7449) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange color with a huge orange-beige head. The aroma was nutty and sour malts with some fruity hops and a vegetal bock like note. The flavor was sour, tangy, bitter and dryish with light vague fruits and sour nutty malts. Long finish. Medium body. Eh.

Leighton (20116) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2010
Bottle. A nice amber ale. Pours a clear, light gold honey with a moderate white head. Floral aroma, with some earthy hops and some yeast. Hoppy character in the flavor, more earth - very East Coast IPA-esque. Some malty sweetness makes an appearance in the tail. Mouthfeel is biting and sharp. Modestly bitter finish, some light roastiness. Good.

Leafs93 (2233) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2010
Pours a deep amber with a thin white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma is citrus hops, florals and touch of dark fruits. Taste is mildly sweet and typical of the style. Medium mouthfeel makes this very drinkable and smooth.
