3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very refreshing beer, light bitterness on the palate, hints of banana on the nose, because itís bitterness comes through, it makes you want to sup again & again, very nice quaffer.

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.
