A light pilsner in color and taste. Overall a typical light golden beer, not a lot to note. Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

hockeybeerguy (1686) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light foamy clingy lacing sticking nicely to the glass. The smell had a nice sweet malty bill but allowed a nice under current of light spice to grace my nose. The taste was mainly just sweet as it settled over my taste buds. The palate had a decent sessionability with a fairly nice lightness about it. The carbonation was smooth. Overall, good California Common that I could have again.

On tap at the brewery. Comes a clear pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt and citrus. Taste is malt, grain, lemon, and a hint of hops. Drinkable.

ajnepple (1999) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2013
12 oz bottle. Gold pale and clear with a white head. Pretty bland aroma, sweet, pilsener malts and light spices. Similar flavor, light fruits, crisp and clean with a light body. PASS.

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
This lager poured a clear and flat looking with no head at all other than a soapy rim. Scents include apple juice, corn, citrus and a very light hop scent. First sip was very watery and thin on the palate with faint hop flavours and almost like a watered down apple/pineapple juice flavour. To weak to like.

drjay44 (2586) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Sampler at the brewery. Pours a thin white head, over a clear, yellow (SRM 3) body....nose is light cereal, mild light hop spice....taste is mild cereal, light corn, dry finish.....mouth feel, carbonation both medium. This meets the style of a Pale Lager better than that of a California Common. BJCP 6/3/10/4/5

daknole (8947) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Very pale yellow pour, white head. Grainy, corn, extremely light hop aroma. Flavor follows suit. Meh.

rougeau13 (1977) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2011
Very pale, clear gold with a white head. Aroma of grain and light citrus. Taste is pretty much standard pale lager with a tiny touch of hops. Body is thin. Not much to it.

Tap at the brewpub. Light gold/white head. Light citrus aroma. Lightly bready, mildly citrus. Decent.
