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

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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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
