COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
California Common beer...This is a beer fermented with a lager yeast at ale temperatures. We use lots of Northern Brewer hops and rich Crystal malt to create this easy drinking ale. A great American beer style.

12oz draft from The Beer Store Wilson. Orange hue, hazy clarity (can see my fingers on the other side) with 1/4" thick frothy white head. Excellent lacing. Wheat, malt, resin. Sweet malt taste up front with the same finish.

Draft. Pour amber thin tan head. Aroma of sweet bread, caramel, and resin. Taste was a light sweetness. Medium body, lively carbonation, mild bitter hop dry finish. Not great but pretty good and would order again.

I can’t believe how great this beer is a pounding good tune at the brew house, a nice malty California common witty and flavorfull

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Tap at Motorco in Durham. Pours light brown with a small white head. Nose of cereal, biscuity malt, and light citrus hop notes. Taste adds a pleasant bitterness. Good session beer for a UNC basketball victory.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Tap at beer study. Hazy amber with a light white head. Smells like sour metallic malt. Flavor is similar. Not a fan at all.

maxwelldeux (3665) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Draught. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose and taste are both a bit malty, and I actually feel that it has a bit of a bite to it at the end. Very similar to a dark lager.

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Mostly clear, tea color, thin ivory head. Good propeller tap. Very fruity Newton-esque aroma - like strawberry newtons or something, light diacetyl. Sweet, hoppy, distinct strawberry tones -- I even had the barmaid at the Flying Saucer double-check to make sure they hadn’t crossed up Abita Strawberry or something. Medium to marginally light body. Finishes out with a bitter/woody/acidic fadeaway. MGC trip 1.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Served on draft at the restaurant. Pours a clear copper color with a medium frothy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of grainy malts, floral hops and stone fruits. The taste is grain, caramel, stone fruits and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied, high carbonation and quite refreshing. Nice.

5/22/11. Growler mlunger12. Clearish brown pour with a small tan head. Slightly fruity grainy aroma with nuts and caramel. Surprisingly robust flavor that reminds of nutty coffee, toasted grains, and more. Not bad.
