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.

Tasted On: 06-06-2013
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Globe glass
Purchased: 6-pack from Great Spirits, Huntsville AL

A: Amber, partly cloudy beer capped by a small, off-white head. The head retention is OK, with a low amount of lace.

S: Spicy and citrus hops, with some woody and earthy tones, but not a lot of aromas.

T: Vegetable flavors, plus spiciness and then fairly bitter hop character make up the taste.

M: Body is medium with an average amount of carbonation. The aftertastes have more vegetable flavor and a fairly hoppy bitter finish.

O: So, I would not have guessed this to be a California Common beer; it reminded me more of an American amber ale. I though the beer was OK, but not one I'd seek again.
