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.

Just came across this here on base in the UK. I may be slighted in my opinion but it is nice to have a taste of home right now. Great amber color, big hop aroma and a sweet, malty finish. Big on the biscuit flavors and fruity all around. So glad to have some in my house right now!

Schönes Kupfer im Glas, in der Nase Karamell und etwas Frucht. Im Trunk malzig, Karamell, dunkle Beeren, dann leicht bitter, hinten holzig, trotzdem mit einer gewissen Süffigkeit - ausgezeichnetes Amber mit schöner Komplexität. Kastenbier!

Lighter mahogany color with a big pillowy head of creamy off white foam. Has a kaleidoscope of characteristics that are earthy, floral, perfectly balanced caramel richness, and pleasantly dry with hardly any bite at all. A very full and yet soft amber ale.

Nicely not overhopped like crazy. My taste buds would like still a bit less hops, but it seems perfectly brewed to what their going for. Clearly, since this beer wins a lot of awards. Ballast pt SD. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours translucent copper, medium cream head and sticky lacing. Aroma of ripe fruits, dates and caramel. Smooth to the palate, with strong fruits, dates, caramel, toffee, with a long dry-bitter finish. Softly carbonated, absolutely tasty and enjoyable, great session ale.

Clear, amber-red colored, small beige head. Aroma is of malt and some caramel, orange hard candy, fruity and some floral notes. Taste is medium sweet malt, caramel, biscuit, some orange candy, some fruity and floral hops, medium bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily. Most of the hops gave up by this time...
