2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Eureka Burger in Claremont as "Citizen’s Lager". Good white lacing from a light orange pour. Nose is sweet orange and cinnamon apple. Getting more like old apple juice as it warms. Lightly sticky body with mild bitterness. Herbal, harsh hops mix with sticky cinnamon apple. Papery palate. Not really doing it for me, but then again this style is inherently messed up. Not a quenching lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured clear light copper color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate hop and sweet malty aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange pour with a white head. Aroma of bread, toast, and orange peel. Some floral hops, grass, and maybe a touch of caramel. Sweet flavor up front with toast, bread, and some caramel. Orange peel, light floral notes, and a grassy bitterness on the finish. Maybe a bit buttery as it warms up.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber to snifter (thanks Tmoney99). Looks good for the style; a fairly transparent orange with white lacing. Smells doughy, pleasantly skunky, and a little hoppy. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear gold in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is malty, creamy and crisp with very little hop. Sweet malt flavor with a crisp grassy hop finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Mostly hazy orange-amber color. Thin white head, decent lace. Medium to bigger body, pretty full for the ABV. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Bready, bitter, slight metallic and not over-sweet taste of a lager, and ample but light fruitiness of an ale - satisfying amount of fruity hop here. Lightly toasty malt. An interesting and well-done California Common, if I’ve ever had one. Seems like a good example of the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Uncomplicated hop, little to no aroma. Lacking on palate, and slightly bitter for style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in Mesa. Pours a clear copper appearance with a nice, foamy, colored head. Light citrusy, cracker, bready, toasty malty aroma. A bit juicy, orange citrusy, light caramel, toasty flavor. Kind of odd.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Bottle purchased from Beercraft. Very malty but a bit too sweet for my taste.
