Enjoyed at Jack's Abby, poured into a tasting glass.

Appeared a very light, cloudy golden color with a jet white nitro-induced head.

Smell was very mild. Slight chocolate teddy-graham smell. Almost a whipped cream like scent to it as well.

At first taste I wasn't too into it, but as I let the precious liquid roll around on my tongue a bit I became more impressed. It is very subtle, but you can truly pick out the chocolate, vanilla, and custard-like qualities in this one. Very unique - haven't tasted anything like this one before.

Mouthfeel was very light, but that's what they are going for.

Interesting beer for sure. I'd like it to have a little more "oomph" though I believe they hit it exactly how they wanted it given the style. The flavor grew on me quite a bit and writing this is making me salivate for more...oh dear.

This beer was just released at the brewery, and is Jack Abby's take on California Common. It is brewed with vanilla, lactose and cocoa nibs, and then warm fermented.

Appearance: Very light light and cloudy, but very appealing

Smell: Chocolatey and a little bit funky, extremely unique

Mouthfeel: This is a thin beer with low carbonation, but it works well with the beer.

Taste: This beer just tastes awesome. It is light, thirst quenching, chocolatey, with a bit of sweetness, and then a slight bitter kiss of bittering hop on the end note to balance it all out.

Overall, this beer is awesome. I personally would like to see it with a bit more carbonation next time, but overall, it is tasty, unique, and thirst quenching with a low alcohol content. I could drink a growler of this by myself.
