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.

500ml bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrus and grass with some cereal grains. Taste is a light citrus and grassy bitterness with a light malty sweetness. Slightly grainy mouth feel. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, this is a clean finishing lager with a nice balance and enough taste to recommend this to others. Nicely done.

notalush (5352) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle - clear dark gold - fairly lovely, kicking up a significant lace - medium sweet, toasty malt in the nose, lightly grassy hops, light estery fruitiness - flavor is somewhat estery, medium sweet, moderate toastiness to the malt character - a bit of acidity late before a mild hop bitterness finishes - it’s okay.

mcberko (9343) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
On tap at Stateside, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out herbal notes, some grass, and biscuity malt. Flavour is clean, with notes of corn, biscuity malt, light fruity sweetness and herbal hops. Quite a decent smooth, sweet lager. Good.

TimE (4118) - 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.

Thin white head atop clear orange body. Nose of crackers. Very bready. Pretty average.
