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.

Clear gold - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and mildly crisp. Smooth malts, little cream. Whisper of banana ester. Very mellow orange hops. Light finish with a very mild bitter linger. Tastes more like a mellow apa than a lager. But decent.

bhensonb (12306) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a small white head. Fruity aroma. With a little sharpness that could be citrus. Near med body. Seems a bit thin as the minimal carb leaves. It’s lightly fruity, does seem to have citrus, is tending towards dry and astringent. Drinks real good.
