COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale/lager hybrid is deep golden in color with a light body. Its hop character is bold with a hint of spice and citrus. The finish is refreshingly light and dry.

On tap at brewpub. Poured amber orange with a small white head. Aroma of fresh citrus and pine hops, sweet caramel malt. Taste is also malty, with a hop bitter finish. This is a hoppy brew for this style. But, itís very drinkable and pretty enjoyable.

Another from the 2005 Classis city fest that I cannot read completely. Can only make out scors and the word "fruity". Oh well.

Definatly rivals Anchors steam beer, almost a clone in some regard. In fact, it may be better. Also, pretty light on the stomach so if you head in for two dollar tuesdays you can have quite a few of these and still have some room for the hot dog guy on the corner.

Not the best California Common Iíve ever had, but a well-balanced, refreshing beer. Good hoppiness and pleasing color.

had it at the brewpub. Not the most fantastic beer iíve had, but I *think* this is my frist ever steam beer. had a nice copper color with some ruby highlights. Tasted much like an IPA to me, lots of hops and citrus characteristics, but, what seems to be the theme at the brewery, it was rounded out nicely and not overly bitter or astringent due to the very nice malt backbone. These guys seem to know what theyíre doing.

this is a very interesting style. had it on tap at the brewpub in athens. amberish tone to it. had a decent amount of hops, more that i would have expected. these hops i speak of were layered over a solid malt base.

On tap at the brewpub during the Crawl which followed the Classic City Brewfest. This one was more APA than California Common but that made it that much better as a brew. Nice clear amber color with a good head. Full hop aroma. The flavor was dominated by the fresh hop presence with a good solid malt backing. Nice bitter finish. Well done.

This is easily the hoppiest California Common Iíve ever had. Itís almost like what an IPA might taste like if it were a steam beer. The copper body is clear and metallic-shiny. The head is moderate and soupy. The aroma clears the sinuses with a piney, bitter hop aroma. The flavor has a strong malt front that quickly shifts into a very bitter finish. This one is perhaps a little overbalanced by the hops, but still an exciting take on the style.
