I might have gotten a bad batch, but beer was very average. Had a distinct starsan taste. Edited review, initial was definitely from an infected beer. (151 characters)

Easy drinking brew. Only served on tap. Easily replaces those big breweries versions. If you're looking for a craft crossover or are just being introduced to craft beers then this is for you. (191 characters)

Draft pour in a shaker pint glass.

A bit hazy, yellow orange in color, foamy white head. mild aroma, slightly sweet. Same with taste. Grainy malt, cracked corn, a bit of earthiness, some noble hops? Medium body and carbonation. Very easy to drink, and nice mild flavor. Great for a hot New Orleans day. (304 characters)

3.77/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Opaque and unfiltered. Color is somewhere between dark copper and light amber. Average amount of white lacing.

S: Malty. Lots of esters, so there is some citrus fruit and floral notes in the nose as well.

T: Surprisingly flavorful for being only 22 IBU. Lots of fruity ester flavor against a solid malt backbone. I wasn't expecting to like this one, but I did. That being said, I don't know that I'd drink a bunch of this beer. California Common isn't really my favorite style.

M: Chewy and malty. Definitely one of the least "dry" lagers I've ever had. Would probably be a little more drinkable if it were a little drier.

O: Overall, not bad. Flavor and smell are very good. It could be a little more drinkable, but it's definitely the most sessionable offering from Gnarly Barley. (789 characters)

On tap at The Red White and Brew, Hammond, LA.

A: An opaque light amber with off-white, one-finger head that lingered. Ample lacing.

S: Citrus-y sweet and malty.

T: Orange and lemon sweetness comes through with an aggressive malt background. Very sessionable. Smooth, well-balanced. A great summertime beer.

M: Medium with medium carbonation. Chewy.

O: A good offering from Gnarly Barley. A real crowd pleaser. Very inviting with ample drinking power. (457 characters)
