Clean, Floral, Sweet, Toasty

Going old world lager here, on the darker side with a clear amber hue. A big focus on the malt and lager cleanliness, overtones of bread, crust, and toasted biscuits. Kiss of oily floral hop of the Goldings variety. Mild fruitiness from the higher-temperature fermentation and residuals from the hops. A sweet beer more or less, a lot of balance but the maltiness leaves a pleasant sweetness on the palate. Clean throughout.

Had on tap at Whale Wins. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazed dark orange/copper color with one finger of off-white head made up of large bubbles. Great head retention which left behind some nice lacing.

S: Some nondescript fruit upfront with some grainy malt and light caramel in the middle. Faint grassy note near the end.

T: The flavor is slightly sweet, again with a fruity undertone with faint grass as well. Light caramel and toasted bread on the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty smooth and easy drinking.

O: Don't drink California Common beers very often, but this one hit the spot with dinner. Easy drinking and a light flavor profile that complimented food well. (709 characters)

Chrome Satan (aka "Chrome Santa" during the holiday season) - Hilliards take on the California Common amber lager

Rich amber body - nice creamy beige pillow atop. Roasted nut, caramel, grass, toast, herbal hop presence. A pretty easy drinker, but not my favorite Hilliards beer. Paired nicely with the Wizard Cheese Truck's grilled cheese offerings on this fine saturday night. (380 characters)

16oz : mason jar

Hazy, coppery red with a foamy, off white head.

Tasty, though fairly simple grassy, grainy, floral character in both the aroma and taste.

Medium body, fizzy, foamy carbonation.

Nothing complex, but still an enjoyable, well done beer. (254 characters)

Slow spew out the pop top. Pours amber with an orange tinge but not so much foam in the glass.

Mellow with an edge of dankish hops. Flavors are a little murky. Bitter, leafy aftertaste.

Kind of a browned biscuit taste but more like an amber ale. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at 99 Bottles in Federal Way. (310 characters)
