Promised Land is our California Common Ale. Paying homage to the historical style that rose during the great American gold rush, it is brimming with character and intrigue.

Pouring a golden orange hue into the glass, Promised Land hits your palate with notes of toasty and sweet malts and rustic American hops. it finishes cleanly with a pleasant hop bitterness and grainy malt flavors lingering to entice the next sip.

Fermented warm with our House Lager strain, it is clean, crisp, characterful, and refreshing. it is an ideal cooler weather beer, and it will keep quite well when refrigerated. Enjoy

16 oz can.

Pours a crystal clear amber orange color with a large, fluffy khaki head. Great head retention; bubbles for days. Leaves some sticky cobweb lacing.

Lots of bready malts and cereal grains on the nose. Grassy, herbal, and lightly sweet with hints of citrus and honey. Woody, earthy, and rustic.

The flavor has a nice honey character up front, followed by cereal grains, doughy malt, toasted bread, grass, citrus, and herbal hops on the finish.

The feel is medium-light bodied with good carbonation. Lightly crisp with a dry finish.

Overall, this is just a great beer. I'm not well-versed in this style but it seems to be just about what is expected from a good representation, with a little Tree House flair. Could drink these all year.

Tree House has really been going all in in the classics styles lately, but seeing them attack something as obscure as a Steam Beer is a move I did not see coming. Nonetheless, I’m excited to try their take on this uncommon style. Let’s get into it

Pours a cloudy reddish orange with 3 fingers of soapy off white head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves decent lacing

It’s nicely balanced in the nose between toasty and herbal notes. I’m picking up on aromas of brown toast, biscuity malt, cereal grain, herbal hops, wildflower honey, light orange blossom, and grass

It’s not quite as snappy in taste unfortunately but it’s still enjoyable. On the front end of the sip I’m tasting biscuity malt, sweet honey, floral hops, orange zest, brown bread, light tea, and lemon. The swallow brings notes of brown toast, cereal grain, wildflower honey, orange zest, tea, light grass, and floral hops

A light medium body pairs with gentle carbonation, resulting in a crisp and floral beer. Finishes neutral and slightly sweet

This one’s definitely different, and I would’ve preferred a little more bite to it, but it’s still very good
