A light pilsner in color and taste. Overall a typical light golden beer, not a lot to note.

Now I know why the elk are staggering: they’re about to drop dead after sampling this horrid brew. "Harshly metallic" is the only way to describe the taste. Did I get a bad batch? After 1 1/2 sips we dumped the rest of the bottle down the sink.

12 oz bottle shared by Huhzubendah’s mother in law, thanks Sue! Pours a clear copper brown with minimal head retention and virtually no lacing. Aroma is mild biscuit malt and a certain unbalanced oxidized note. Flavor is same with a thin mouthfeel and sweet sugary finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hilarious art work on the label and a great story behind this beer.
Copper body, light chill haze with a bubbly tan head. Aromas of lager yeast, heavy fruity sweetness, caramel malt. Eh...mediocre flavor at best. Caramel malt and sweet fruity booze. Pass.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Clear red orange color. Thin off-white cream colored head. Decent bits of lace. Head fades to minimal in a bit. Caramel malt, dark fruit. Kind of toasty. Moderate sweet taste. Light bitterness. Medium body. Kind of creamy. Smooth, light carbonation. Light slick. Solid stuff, better than expected. Nice to wash my sandwich down with. Pretty drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
