COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for Sacramento Beer Week 2011, collaboration between several breweries.

This beer has an elevated alcohol to warm the belly, a drawn-out caramel sweetness and very low hop character. As an ode to the regionís rich hop-growing history, the brewers also thought to use hops grown in Penryn at the Jordan Family Farm. This ale is intended to be a celebratory beer, not an all-day drinker.

Tap at the Sacramento venue. Pours slightly ruddy amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is malty. Med body; creamy carb. Flavor seems vinous, and rough roast malt. Not all that sweet, and thereís a touch of floral/fruit hop bitter, but itís on the sweet side. Interesting.

Tap at the Rubicon. Pours clear brilliant coppery brown. thick sweet aroma. Med body/mild carb. Itíssweet, and just a little sticky at the finish. Itís pretty much smooth malt thatís medium roasted. Might be a touch of smoke, but if so itís very light. Thereís a very little astringent bitter in the finish. Drinks smooth like Newcastle brown, but with somewhat more flavor.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a cream colored head. Malt aroma with toffee/caramel. Toffee and light grain flavor with light dark frutiness. Medium bodied. Dark fruit and toffee lingers with light grain and light mineral notes.

8 ounce sample on tap at Rubicon. Faint, slightly metallic, slightly sugary sweet aroma with some subdued peated malts. Decent aroma. Transparent amber body with a small, medium-yellow head. Virtually no lacing. Starts a little sweet with caramel notes. Becomes strangely buttery with diacetyl hints shortly thereafter. More sweetness with peated malts and caramel hints that come through in the finish. Fairly full-bodied, but I really get a weird buttery flavor, which is off-putting. Late herbal and floral notes along with mineral characteristics.
