COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was formerly known as "Cismontane California Common Pilot #1"

The California Common almost disappeared after prohibition as did the term Cismontane. Our interpretation of this style is a golden warm fermented lager with sufficient hop aroma. As a brewer and citizen of Cismontane California it is our obligation to produce a fine California Common.

Not a fan of this. The hops are overpowering for this style and the wrong type. A plastic aftertaste. I didn’t finish the bottle.

TimE (3340) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 19, 2014
Astringent frothy white head, dry. Definitely a steam beer, but I would rather they call it that, rather then a lager. Low bitterness and hops.

lusikka (6525) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber orange colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of grains, wet earth, grass and yeastiness. Flavour of grainy malts, grassy bitterness, some orange sweetness, mild herbal notes and yeast. Light bodied and a bit harsh carbonation. Decent.

50 cl bottle.
Pours golden color with a large head. Slightly herbal aroma, grassy and moderately hoppy, some faint pale malts too. Flavor is also grassy and herbal, some orange and lemon with faint pine and malts. Fairly easy to drink, strong carbonation. Maybe a bit too harsh bitterness in the end though.
