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.

Ungstrup (38243) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet hoppy on a back ground of malt and berries. The flavor is sweet malty and quite hoppy, the hops giving it notes of both grapefruit and straw, and makes the end quite bitter.
