Nothing common here, just great beer! “Commonly” consumed in California’s early gold rush days when those old wood kegs would literally burst from the pressure of the beer, leading to the nickname Steam Beer. Super Nova is ruby-gold with a refreshingly smooth sweetness that’s complimented by an All-American crisp hop finish.

NachlamSie (3293) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2015
12 oz bottle best before October from that smoke shop in McCook, NE. This is a hazy light orange with a long lasting white head. Aroma has notes of peaches, earthy hops, and bread. The palate is medium with some noticeable sugars giving it body. There are flavors of stone fruit, grassy hops, and grains. Backend bitterness starts to build towards the end of the glass. Decent enough.

Only had a small sample at a tasting. However, it tasted beer than it's current RB rating. Aggressive carbonation and decent hops for the low abv. Some nice subtle sweetness as well. Decent.
