The “Coast Daylight” and the other “Daylight” trains were streamlined passenger trains operated by the Southern Pacific Railroad. Considered by many aficionados to be among the most beautiful trains ever created, we not-so-humbly believe that label applies to our Daylight Amber as well.
Don’t be fooled by Daylight Amber Ale’s easy-going name. This not-so-typical Amber Ale has a slight up-front bitterness that fades into a malt body influenced by caramel and toast flavors, which are more typical of an Amber Ale. Too firmly hopped to be a pure Amber Ale and too malty to be an IPA, Daylight gives hop-heads something to sip with a little more character than your typical Amber Ale. Named after the Southern Pacific’s “Daylight” train known for breathtaking views and a nice ride. Sit back and enjoy a Daylight.
