Pinsetter Amber Lager was created in the spirit of a uniquely American style, the California Common. Originally produced in an era without the benefits of modern refrigeration, a hybrid style of lager emerged that was fermented at temperatures typically reserved for ale yeasts. The end result was a medium-bodied beer with a lager-clean malt character and a subtle fruitiness derived from its time at these warmer fermentation temperatures. Pinsetter is brewed using the finest American 2-row and caramel malts, with a touch of roasted malt for a rich amber color. The beer has a pleasant malt profile, subtle sweetness, and a balanced hop bitterness.
