12 ounce bottle -> snifter

A - hazy medium amber with a foamy one inch head, good retention, and good lacing

S - very weak nose, mostly bready notes

T - starts off with a apple taste and caramel malt sweetness, and finishes with a hop bitterness. Rye is present as well. Unfortunately so is a big metallic note.

M - a little watery with carbonation that can produce some earth shaking belching.

O - this was a miss for me. I have liked every offering from Blue Pants so far, but this one was not up to par from what I have gotten used to from them.

Hazy and unfiltered, this beer pours from the bottle to an orange/tan hue with a nose that presents scents of citrus, light spice, and light pine. There isn’t much head on this beer and it settles down rather quickly with only a slight amount of lacing.

With the taste, Workman Common Lager serves up flavors of crackers, bread, vegetables, some citrus, rye, and some earthy notes. The beer finishes with a slight bitterness but it’s kept in check by the sweeter components, resulting in a more or less balanced taste overall.

Workman Common Lager is Blue Pants Brewing’s answer to the California Common beer. It does have some similar traits, but its unfiltered, sediment- filled body makes it a beer all its own. I was less impressed with this beer after one bottle, but it has grown on me after a second helping and it now seems good enough to recommend. It’s not the greatest beer I have tried lately, but it has enough unique qualities to make it deserving of a sample.

A great golden amber color to this beer. Very carbonated. A fingers worth of foam. Taste was of a standard lager....which is fitting based on the name. Rather fizzy on the tongue that leaves a clean pallet. Flavors unlock as it warms up...a mild caramel and nuttyness to my taste. A decent lager.
