3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml Bottle from Aldi Supermarket, UK:
Malty with some subdued hops & plenty of sweetness. Honey & caramel with some bread feature but itís the nose the dominates at the beginning before the sweetness takes over & some toffee makes an appearance as well.
Clear, bright amber with a thin, 1cm head thatís bubbly before turnings fairly patchy.
Malty with some sweetness backing it up. Thereís some earthy hops & further malts coming through along with the caramel & toffee flavours. Toasted malts, biscuit & butterscotch, along with some bitterness come through too.
Medium with the odd light patch & the carbonation levels are about light-medium too & itís slightly creamy in places. Some bitterness features throughout as well & the beer is well balanced.
Decent but this must surely be false advertising, this one tastes almost nothing like I expected from a California Common, although itís not a style of beer that Iím overly familiar with; it seemed more like a standard English bitter to me. A pleasant beer but standard & not one Iíd pick up again.

500ml bottle, cheers Dad.
Small bubbly white head, some nice lacing. Body is clear golden amber. Nose is subdued, some floral notes, a little caramel. Flavour is malty, bready, hops later with a grassy slightly floral finish. Decent mouthfeel, light carbonation. A refreshing drop.

Floral on the nose and pours with a slight tinge of red from amber. Lots of caramel and buscuit, nice enough.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at the Night of Garbage, picked this up at Tomlinsons Inverness, 20/12/13 up a shit load of stairs !
Clear golden amber with little in the way of a head.
Nose is paper and to be fucking specific a telephone directory thatís sat on the back porch for a week or two, hay, enamel, dull caramel.
Taste comprises paper, very faint citrus, grass, pretty muted all round.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp closure.
This was drinkable, no defects per say, jsut a complete lack of any flavour ... dull dull dull !

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at the Night of Garbage, thanks to Colin? It pours pale golden-amber with a tiny bubbly head. The nose is pretty limited.....sweetish, toasty, sugar paper and light popcorn. The taste is oily, sticky, sweet, grain, dull toast, toffee, and cereal. Lightish body, low carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Poor condition. Really pretty dull and so-so
