3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange amber color with a thin white head. Simple aroma and flavor of malt and hops with subtle fruit notes. Lasting bitter finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, oily texture. This is a simple, clean and decent beer, not bad but I look for more than that in a beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad. It pours a deep amber color with a tan head that fizzes up, then fades away. The aroma is a mildly floral with a touch of bitterness. The flavor is mainly a light malt, somewhat tart, and makes for a mildly creamy mouthfeel. This finishes with a bitter malt feeling. Pretty good.

The colour is clear amber with a touch of red. The foam is very high, but it is also quite soft and disappears after a short while.
The smell is fruity with a touch of black coffee and hints of yeast end smoked ham.
The carbon dioxide is medium strong with medium bubbles.
The taste is first on the lighter side with low bitterness. There is a nice body that is not too heavy. The malt is the dominating part, with hints of a burned taste. The aftertaste is filled with malt, white bread and some diacetyl.
This is not my first choice for a session beer, but it is probably a perfect companion to a real American hamburger.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 (Bottle) Nice orange amber color with an tanish head, has an breadlike yeasty aroma. The flavor is thin and doughy witha bit of hop accent and some toffee notes not bad but I was hoping for more

This wasn’t a bad beer at all, nothing surprising, but it had a very smooth finish. I would say this would be like an everyday normal beer, but not bad at all.

My first california common - Pours suprisingly dark amber with a tan lasting head. Aroma of floral woody hops with sweet toffee. Smooth medium-thin feel. Nice clean caramel malt start with a balanced bitter finish. Nice beer!
