COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stalins Organ is Steam Beer (or California Common if you must). The Carlsbergensis yeast has fermented at 22 Celcius to squeeze a bit more fruityness out of the yeast.
Since it is a steam beer we added 5% smoked pilsner malt to the mash giving the beer a slight touch of smoke. The smoke gives some fatness that blends perfectly with the yeast and helps balancing the powerful tomahawk, simcoe and tettnanger hops.
All in All a well-hopped session steam beer with a touch of smoke.

ShivanDragon (1732) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2014
Mijn eerste California Common, het begin is goed, lekker fris en fruitig aroma citrus, sinaasappel, hooi, lichte den maar ook wat lichte rookmouten komen door. De looks zijn ook aardig, wat wazig oranje met witte kraag. Smaken zijn redelijk stevig bittertje, matig zoet, fruitigheid van citrus, sinaasappel, wat gekookte groentenvocht, gras en rookmouten komen terug. zwak tot medium body, dun, lage co2. afdronk wat lang bitter. Ben er helaas niet weg van. En waarom dit bier noemen naar een oorlogstuig (Katyusha - Stalin’s orgel) begrijp ik niet...

Lowenbrau (2003) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 28, 2014
33cl bottle @El lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 16-02-2014.
In short: a subtle tart and smoky beer.
Pours some hazy golden with white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Subtle smoky and some tart aromas. Light to medium body, some crispy texture, average carbonation. Taste is citrusy, subtle smoky and spicy. Quite refreshing but a bit of off flavours. Larry, you were freckin´ crazy about this one, i don´t know why.

Christian (11219) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Fruity hop aroma with grapefruit, orange and peach, along with a bready malt note, that may include a hint of smoke (or maybe it’s just because I know it’s there). Fruity hop flavour with a good, sweetish malt backbone, and definitely some smoke in the aftertaste

Psytron (1346) - Turku, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Smell of hay, snoke. Amber colour, white head. Aroma of grain, yeast, smoke. Some mango in finish. Sweet with a faint bitter finish. Mild palate, plentiful but soft carbon. Somewhat yeasty but otherwise nice.

SzopPiwosz (155) - - SEP 29, 2014
Golden with haze, big but non-persistent off-white head. Aroma is flowery-herbal english-like hops with notes of melon, lychee, lemongrass. After that there is lager-like grainyness with some yeasty notes. Taste is light, malty sweetness, a bit of citrus. A little herbal astringency. Medium-light body. Medium carbonation, medium bitterness which is noble short. /// Pełnozłote opalizujące, piana w kolorze złamanej bieli, obfita lecz niezbyt trwała. W aromacie kwiatowo-ziołowy chmiel w typie angielskiego, z lekką nutką melonowo-liczi, trawa cytrynowa oraz lekka drożdżowość. Do tego lagerowa ziarnistość. W smaku średnia, zbożowa słodycz, łagodna cytrusowość. Odrobinę roślinne ściąganie. Ciało średnio-lekkie. Nasycenie średnie, goryczka średnia, szlachetnie krótka.

adamnowek (149) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2014
A bit smoky, a good bunch bitter. Nice and hazy appearance. Also, an incredible political label to boot.

Karol (647) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 15, 2014
Bottled. Overall a blend of a sourness, hopiness and a mild malt backbone. Aroma of fruits, pears, grapefruit, some citrus. Color hazy golden with a thick one inch stable head thats keeps a good long lacing. Taste is a bit sour due to the hopiness, bitter fruits, bitter hops finish. Very refreshing. A damn good beer!
