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.

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Very clean malty base, just a hint of sweetness, and faint floral notes. Very drinkable.

Strykzone (5380) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2015
12 ounce can from nimbleprop in a locals trade. Quite cloudy bright orange, golden, brown. Only a little off white foam. Not a robust flavor profile at all. I do taste grain and soft fruit. Malts add nice smoothness and sweetness. Some dry hop fruitiness. A little late bitterness is tart fruit. This is to style but its not an exciting style.

magsinva (950) - Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2015
Can - this isn’t my favorite style, but I liked this one. It drinks like a session beer, though at 5.1%, it has a bit too much alcohol for that. The hops are subdued, but you still get bites of pine and lemon, without the bitter burn, that some beers in this style have.

Bork (416) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2015
Light and watery with an unusual but not unpleasant bitterness. Low on aromas and flavors but nicely crisp.

Can into pint glass. Not much aroma. Faint hint of grass. Mild beer a bit watery. Mild malt. Easy drinking hot weather session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, clear light amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of grainy malt sweetness and light citrus. Taste adds caramel, toast and light fruitiness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with clean finish. Flavorful Cali common.

Sledutah (5735) - Utah, USA - NOV 3, 2014
22oz bottle thanks to Travlr
Pours clear golden with a medium sized off-white head that dissipates quickly to a small ring, some lacing. Aroma is grains, malts, yeasty and citrus. Taste is grainy, straw, citrus, spicy and black pepper
A nice easy drinking beer.
