If their Pils is my favorite offering of Bauhau this is a very close second. An interesting take on a California Common....an enjoyable and tasty take I might add. The hops are evident but there is also a nice biscuity, nutty malt flavor. Hops are flavorful not bitter...notes of peaches and apricots on the taste...aroma gives off some light citrus as well...highly drinkable....full of flavor...a definite winner here.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a lot of bubbles. Big three finger off white head which slowly settles into a thinner layer. Leaves some good lacing.

Smell: A juicy and floral hop forward aroma with hints of citrus and pine. Upfront citrus hops with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon, mango, pineapple, and tangerine. Dank hints of pine resin along with some floral hints. Solid malt background with hints of grains, caramel, cracker, and lager yeast. A pretty good smell.

Taste: Like the smell hints at, a juicy and earthy hop forward taste with good notes of citrus and pine. Citrus hops with good juicy notes of grapefruit, mango, orange, lemon, pineapple, and tangerine. Good earthy and floral hop presence with notes of pine resin and grass. Soft bready malt background with notes of caramel, grains, cracker, and lager yeast. A very solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, crisp, and pretty smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A very solid brew that is described as a California Common but comes off like a citrus forward American Pale Ale. Really good use of hops.

No date on the can.

Appearance: Pale caramel with good clarity and a thin off-white head.

Aroma: Grain with some caramel and sweet fruity notes.

Taste: Nice light caramel flavor and a hint of spice from the grain. The hop character is a bit subdued apart from a solid amount of bitterness. Some citrus flavor and a bit of an overall sweetness to help balance the IBUs. Crisp finish and a fading bitterness in the aftertaste along with a slight metallic/soapy taste. Good depth of flavor for 5.4% ABV.

Mouthfeel: Just below medium in body with smooth carbonation edging on tepid at times. Good drinkability and a good candidate for a session.

Final Thoughts: Akin to other IPLs that have come out in the past year or so. Would be better if it weren't for the off-flavor in the aftertaste. Would I drink it again? Maybe on tap, but I will be checking out the rest of their offerings.
