3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This California Common pours a medium orange gold from tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is malty and sweet, with a touch of floral hops. A medium bodied steam beer. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and floral. It very hoppy for a California Common, but I like it. It still has that nice soft round feel of a steam beer, but has a nice hop bite to it. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Pours golden hazy orange with a white head. The aroma is fruity. Mostly tropical with mango and papaya. The flavor is sweet with caramel and fruit and an herbal bitter finish. Pretty flavorful for a low alcohol session beer.

Draft, Beer Revolution. A touch grainy but otherwise rather good for the style and quite refreshing. Mild light caramel/bready malt. Lightly grassy/citric/floral hops. Mild bitterness. Nice dry yeastiness in the finish. A well made beer, simple and satisfying. Listed as 5 or 5.5% abv.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured at FIrkin Fest at Triple Rock, golden with small white head. Aromas of mild grass and malted grain. The flavor is a kind of toasted malt with some grassy, and fruity malt notes. More of a hop bite to it than Anchor Steam, but very mild. There is a malty full mouthfeel that has some slight astringent notes in the middle but a nice dry clean finish. Easy drinking beer. Iíll be trying it again.
