COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the beers that accompanied America’s expansion into the West, District Common is fermented using a lager yeast at temperatures common to ale fermentation. The result is a pale, well-balanced beer combining crisp lager character with fruity ale notes. The clean grain bill provides a refreshing drinkability and supports late aroma additions of Czech Saaz hops.

Crisper and lighter with a better hop profile than any other California common that I’ve had. Finally able to get my hands on a great example of the style without being on the West Coast.

Decent flavor, I like this one a lot,not sure if it is just me, but the can design makes me think it is a brown ale, glad that isn't accurate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Faint barley aroma with a slight sour bite in the malt. Finish is clean with a bit of hops.

On tap at Ebbitt Grill. Nice copper body with slight head. Nose is grainy, malty and yeasty. Taste is grainy, caramel and spices. Not greatly balanced. Okay.

Cheers Gene for this 355ml can which was shared on 26th Jan 2016 by the Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting. Cloudy light amber, wispy white head. Slightly sour and yeasty brew with a mixed fruit and herbal aroma and taste. Different and almost interesting.

Draft at the Prospect. Hazy orange color. Caramel and some light hops come through. Balanced flavor overall. Solid beer, but a little dull. Decent enough.

(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr") Can. A- Squash, spice, trash, caramel, cereal. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head. T- City water, cereal, spices, grassy, malty. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, astringent finish. O- I truly wanted to like this but it was just down right not too good. Only my second common so maybe it’s the style but this just was a sad brew.
