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.

lusikka (6429) - 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.

slowrunner77 (6019) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014
"A bready semi sweet, light ale with a decent hop presence (enough to balance). Crisp and clean on the palate. Pleasant, but not a standout..........."

Ontape (341) - Valley Village, California, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Draft. Pours a lively, clear amber. Nose gives off fruity eaters, touch of caramel. Taste is just a bit sweet but not overly. Getting some banana in there somewhere and just a touch of hops. Drinks a bit oily maybe but certainly not offensive.

Idiosynkrasie (4010) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2014
500ml bottle. Barely clear, orangey golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Minimally grainy, pale malty aroma, herbal hoppy overtones with gone astray freshness and soapy interlude, cautious, not easy to nuzzle hints of mustard-like yeasty, spiciness. Taste is moderately bitter and herbal hoppy, malty and yeasty spicy, peppery, subtle malt sweetness; soft palate. A pimped Dortmunder.
