look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Fills a North Coast pint glass with clear bright copper (SRM 12-14) while occasional columns of carbonation add to a thin, short-lived, off-white foam that deposits modest lacing.

The aroma opens with caramel and rustic tones, followed by lightly toasted malt and perhaps a hint of mint. This is generally a “beery” aroma.

While sweeter than anticipated, late modest bitterness does present itself along with toasted malt and a lingering, sharp astringency in the finish.

Lingering body with light alcohol and fizzy carbonation and a watery texture.

While this is a fine drinking beer, it lacks the crisp refreshing qualities one typically seeks late on a long hot summer day.

bottle 01/21/14

A: dark orange in color. Practically no head therefore minimal lacing.

S: smell mostly of malts. alcohol.. It was hard to get a nose on this one.

T: Not a strong hop presence. I tasted malts, molasses, brown sugar.

M: I'd say medium bodied, not the best mouth feel, it wasnt all the smooth and balanced.

O: It wasnt a bad beer. It was my first California Common which I understand is a lager that is fermented at higher temperatures. Would I buy this again? Probably not for myself. Although the wife liked this one a lot, so I guess it depends who you are.
