12oz can. Poured a clear, golden color with a good-sized, off-white head of foam. It smelled of toasted bread, caramel and herbal notes. Sweet caramel with some roastiness. Mild citrusy bitterness.

Pours clear copper. Short, foamy off white head that fades fast.

Smells toasted and caramel malts, citrus peel and earthy.

Tastes lightly fruity, caramel, toasted malts, bready and citrus peel. Finish is dry with light earthiness and citrus. Medium buddy and fizzy medium carbonation.

From sampler pack. Amber color, nice head. Smoother than a brown ale but it was also 3rd beer of the night.

12oz can with a date

Interesting beer that, while I didn't enjoy it fully, is interesting and deserves credit for doing something different. This has intense citrus and sour flavor, while remaining a lager and not a sour beer. Not much to sniff at, and the taste is very one dimensional, but you have to admit it's interesting.

Bauhaus continues to impress

Poured into a weizen glass. Nice clear copper with a finger of white head. Smells bready and caramelly with a slight sweet maltiness. Taste has an earthy hop profile, heavy caramel notes, and a sweet, biscuit finish. Something is odd as the beer warms, can't quite place it. Definitely meant to be cold. Feel is slightly heavy and bubbly. A nice style among lagers that appeals to my love of stouts.

Never had this style before but I'm a fan. This is a very pleasant beer. Has a earthy aroma mixed with caramel. Pours a golden copper color. Taste is very citrusy with notes of pine and caramel. Had a sticky finish. Enjoyable beer that's overall easy to drink.

This is a better than average Ca Common. Different hopping that traditional. Very earthy aroma and taste and bitterness is less than moderate and really smooth with a rather shorter length. Fuller body, definitely an ale. Darker color too with amber moving towards brown. Full off white head. A nice drinker

L: bright brown liquid, 2" cream to light tan lacy and sticky foam collar with very good retention.

S: spice and resin with some pine, citrus and light toast.

T: rich and malty seasoned by citrus and stone fruit. An assertive bitterness emerges mid-palate leading to lingering malt and hop flavors in the finish. The hop bitterness is medium high, the hop flavors are medium low, and the malt flavors are medium.

F: Wagonparty has a medium body and carbonation.

O: This is a very drinkable and full flavored beer with a nice creamy texture.

Wagon Party pours a dark copper color with a small but long lasting lacing head. Weak but a fresh crisp aroma. Taste is fresh and crisp, with a hint of grainy sweetness. Good body and feel. Overall, a full bodied drinkable and tasty beer.

This beer pours a very clear copper with a large head. The aroma offers up big caramel notes, with pine, and some floral qualities. The flavor is rich with soft caramel, toffee, fresh pine, orange peel, bubbglegum, and more toffee at the swallow. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a sticky finish. Overall this is a very drinkable, gulpable eve, beer. The hops are nice and very west coast in style, as is the strong caramel malt body. Not spectacular by any means, but very enjoyable.

Sweet bready, citrussy aroma. Candied orange peel. Perhaps a touch of diacetyl, but it comes off in a pleasant English way. Toffee. Some minty hops.

Pours clear copper with an off white head. Decent retention and lacing.

Candied citrus and apricots upfront leading to toffee and caramel finishing with satisfying bitterness. Juicy. Somewhat herbal hops. Crisp and dry finish.

Medium light body, medium light carbonation. Snappy and juicy on the palate. Very dry with lingering roastiness.

I have had this a number of times and thought it was boring and mediocre. This is my first time having it at home with the purpose of reviewing it, serving it in my Spigelau glass, and am quite surprised how much more I like it. Not quite Anchor Steam, but still quite nice.
