Pours a hazy burnt copper with a fluffy, quickly disintegrating white head. Smells like it looks--malt with a copper twang. It has a good balance but nothing extraordinary. Generally an average beer with metallic notes in color, aroma and taste.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Well, I was wondering why this was so dry and smooth until I logged on here to discover it’s a California Common, not an Amber. It’s ok... the aroma is fantastic, with fresh hops digging deep through my nasal membranes. Taste is... what it is, though. The malts itch at the back of my throat. Hops give bitterness and no other flavour, really. Hefty cobwebs on the glass, like the seven dwarfs’ home when discovered by Snow White.
