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.

Bottle shared by bruce at SL... Typical amber color. Typical amber taste... I dont know why any brewer wants to even make these beers...Its not that they are bad... they just are boring.... Malty with a slight hop bite. Light to medium body... Dont go out of your way for this beer... Plain Jane

buona amber ale in tipico stile americano... rosso intenso schiuma bianca abbastanza persistente... al naso luppolatura resinosa leggera... al palato bel corpo rotondo malto caramello leggero finale amaro non troppo pronunciato...

This is an excellent amber all. Deep red-amber with a lacy, tenacious head. Big fruity esters and candy floss in the nose, biscuity malt and roasty caramel. Taste reminisces on the aroma with fruity, candy and some citrus notes with a warming, balanced finish. Body is that of a bigger beer. Excellent stuff.

This poured an amber color with an off white head. Aroma was bready, malty, and some citrusy hop notes. Flavor was a nice balance between malt and hops, nothing to impressive here but pretty decent for the style.

Pours copper to orange with some slight haze and generous white head. Nose is mostly citrus with some caramel too. On the palate the caramel comes through as well as some dark, sweeter malty flavors. Hops balance it out though, but to me they remain in the background. There’s a complex malt sweetness in this ale. Great, smooth mouthfeel and easy drinking.

Bomber. Pours a hazy amber/copper body with a large creamy off white head. Good lacing. Aroma is nice floral hoppy, toasted caramel and some cereal notes. Flavor has a great balance of sweet malts with a nice hoppy bitter finish. Full bodied, long lasting flavor. Solid amber!

Smoky red color with a pleasant hoppy aroma. This beer was sampled part way through a pretty heavy beer day, so my memory is a little hazy.
