2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught @ BirraSo 2013, Barcelona. Pours a hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma of wet grass, citrus and some fusel alcohol. Flavour of sweet grains, caramel, dried apricot and some yeastiness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a sweet grainy finish. Alcohol comes through. Feels like an Eastern Europe imperial pils, the bulky one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, bb 31 Jan 2014
Pale blond color, with small head. Light aroma of bread dough. The mouthfeel is not weak and it’s dry; very light flavor of straws and cereals; ordinary bitterness; light oily feeling; light residual sweetness or sweeteners in the final.
Some analogy with European strong lagers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pale yellow, cloudy. Nice autumnal earthy, leafy, peppery nose that shoukd belong to a much darker ale. Body is on the lighter medium side. Plenty of malts, soft smooth, and with green hoppy flavouring. Quite nice, me thinks. A bit murky spicy, but I feel that’s what cali commons are all about.

Bottled. Pours hazy pale golden in color with a whitish head. Plastic, some glue and lager gone bad in aroma. Mild floral notes as well. Sweet corn-like and some old rubber in taste. A bit too sweet to be enjoyable on the whole.
