500ml Bottle from Aldi Supermarket, UK:
Clear, bright amber with a thin, 1cm head that's bubbly before turnings fairly patchy.
Malty with some subdued hops & plenty of sweetness. Honey & caramel with some bread feature but it's the nose the dominates at the beginning before the sweetness takes over & some toffee makes an appearance as well.
Malty with some sweetness backing it up. There's some earthy hops & further malts coming through along with the caramel & toffee flavours. Toasted malts, biscuit & butterscotch, along with some bitterness come through too.
Medium with the odd light patch & the carbonation levels are about light-medium too & it's slightly creamy in places. Some bitterness features throughout as well & the beer is well balanced.
Decent but this must surely be false advertising, this one tastes almost nothing like I expected from a California Common, although it's not a style of beer that I'm overly familiar with; it seemed more like a standard English bitter to me. A pleasant beer but standard & not one I'd pick up again.

Pours honey blond and smells of hops, malt, and honey. It has a smooth, medium-sweet mouthfeel; it's wonderfully round. There is just a hint of hop tang at finish. It's very smooth and drinkable. The bottle I had tasted really fresh. This one is delicious.
