The first beer in our sampler flight, the common beer looks well, common, even similar to that mega professional product made down the road in Fairfield (Budweiser!). Good clarity, soft white head, ample carbonation evident.

Aroma, mildly fruity, not as pungent as Anchor's better known beer. Mild esters and floral impressions. Almost no hop aroma.

Taste, we're back to yummy again, light, but seemingly a tad more bitter than the 20ibus they call out, but with little malt backbone, its understandable how it could taste a little more lively. I really liked the yeast they used here, it had characteristics from both a lager and an ale yeast. The mouthfeel was nice and clean. Very refreshing, just like our jump in the Putah right before here!

I could drink a lot of these in the summer months. A great beer to start with on a hot day.

Poured one finger of head on a hazy, straw colored body.
The aroma is faint; grain.
The taste is mild lemon bitterness with a grainy goodness and a clean finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable, but could use a little more aroma.
