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.

Aroma: nutty, toffee/caramel aromas dominate. Appearance: crystal clear and lives up to the amber moniker. Taste: the malt flavor is center stage followed up by big bitterness to reign in the malt. Palate: middle of the road, moderate effervescence and body. Overall: I prefer my Ambers pretty hoppy so this one isn’t quite for me but still it’s a well made amber.

Fisler (605) - Bamberg, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2017
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.

Draft Taproom 6/1/17. Pours red. Somewhat fruity aroma, along with citrus and caramel. Flavor is cardboard, roasted malt, caramel. Kinda bland, IMO.

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
