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.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Pours a deeper amber with a medium creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of rich caramel malt, nuts, some toffee, toasted malt, orange and other citrusy hop notes along with a touch of floral notes. Flavor of caramel, toasted malt, honey roasted peanuts, pine, some citrus and moderate hop bitterness. A very well brewed amber ale.

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Tom.
Bright red amber with a very short-lived off white head. Fruity slightly tart hops with some faint medicinal notes. Bitter but sugary. Faint card. Nothing special.

Served cold from tap at brewery. Amber ale, described by the bartender as unlike any other amber shes ever consumed. Full-bodied, nice caramel malt notes and a bit spicy.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle from The Green Room. Pours copper and -- wait, it was a pool hall. I drank it out of the damn bottle. Im sure it was amber or copper or whatever and had a nice little head. Smells like a hoppy amber. Quite sweet malt profile, and a slightly syrupy palate. Very bitter. Not bad, but certainly not my favorite style.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Nice amber color with a smell of malts. Tastes malty, cereal, delicious and not what I was expecting. The mouthfeel was very creamy and my favorite part about the beer. For some reason I was expecting this beer to be hoppier. I would probably buy sixers of this if it were available. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-30-2007 05:53:49

Bottle from GBBF 09. Russet clear, lasting deep beige head. Some US hop aroma. Bit of boiled cabbage/vegetal on aroma. Ok amber in the mouth, some decent stony malt. Finish has some toffee and some more vegetal notes and some hop. Overall not that good, the vegetal notes put me off
