Ballast Point Calico

type: amber ale
origin: San Diego, CA
price: 8.99/6-pack 12oz
abv: 5.5%
NSP: 13.0

Just look at that color.  Isn't that a gorgeous beer?  In terms of the flavor, it's pretty refreshing but also complex.  It's not a hop bomb or a malt explosion like Dorado (their double IPA), but it is pleasantly malty and just complex enough to be interesting.  It's certainly not my favorite beer around, but a pretty great option for those trying to acclamate to beer.  Even so, there are plenty of good reasons this was the keg we brought on the Anniversary Tour.

And this was taken on Christmas day in San Diego.  It was pretty much hot and sunny outside.
