Calico Amber Ale

Amber Ale

A rich, copper ale with a case full of gold medals.
Our Calico Amber Ale 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.

Inspired by traditional English ESB’s, our Calico Amber Ale is as American as it gets.  A rich complexity comes from four types of malt—but it’s those distinct American hops that offer a crisp bitterness and unique floral aroma. To round out our traditional-English-yet-very-American Amber Ale, we use proprietary brewer’s yeast to develop a fruity, madeira-like richness.
