look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass

A – Pours a mostly clear russet copper, a small fleeting white head settles into a thin cap.

S – Sweet grain, tangy wheat, cooked corn, slightly toasted,

T – Sweet toasted grains, light orange notes, dull grassiness, multi-grain cereal, sweet biscuit malts, the yeast is more powdery than bready.

M – Stingy carbonation adds some bite on the tip of the tongue, body is full but light around the edges, very light toasted caramel character comes out with some peppery bitterness on the finish. Grassiness only seems to come out on the aftertaste, along with notions of tart fruit skin which is kind of odd.

A quick drinker. Wish this was a little fresher, seems to have faded a bit. Dull components make for an unmemorable beer but some bitterness keeps it alive. An average cream ale that doesn’t stand out in it’s class.

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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark gold color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, lager yeast, caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of lager yeast and a hearty malt character. Then some sweet flavors of caramel and citrus come in. The hops presence is mild and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid sessionable beer to drink for a while.

Pours to a thin white head, minimal lace and copper color. Aroma is malty, sweet and spicy hops. Flavor is biscuity malt and spicy hops and balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is appropriate to style. Overall, this is a good tasting beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Mix a six pick up.

Pours dark amber with thick 1/2 inch foam. Heavy blackish tint. Malty nose. Bready. Light flavorful malt, backed by a flowery hop. Thin body. Not much carbonation. Quite good.

Nice job on a Cali Common brew.

3.09/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Pours a dark copper with tanish head that foams up pretty good with a hard pour. Head sticks around in a thin film, lacing sticks to the glass ok. Smells like bread, fruity mango or peach maybe no hops really. The taste very much a bread craker taste, not really tasting the fruit I smell. There are no hops just a slight bitterness and not to sweet. Mouthfeel is medium, it has body just not really flavor to match. Overall I would drink this anytime and could problay drink a ton, its easy to drink and has more flavor then ur standard beer i guess.
