COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
EVERYBODY LOVES A WINNER. Our California Common Lager is a golden interpretation of the first California-created style with lightly toasted malts giving it a beautiful golden hue. This beer is malt-forward with a nice hop finish that leaves you satisfied in a way that typical lagers wonít.

22oz bomber is a sweet trade bonus courtesy of oRos. It pours with a copper body that has golden hues and supports a small white head. The aroma offers up typical pear and apple fruity esters, lagery yeast, a touch of corn and then some floral hops. The taste delivers floral flavor hops, some floral hop bitterness, sweet apple and pear like fruity esters, sweet malts and a nice lagery yeastiness. I like the hop forwardness of this brew. Darn tasty lager.

~woody, slighty menthol hop aroma with hefty amount of sulfury lager yeast. Bready malts and some caramel as well. ~Pours clear golden color with small bubbly lasting head. ~Strong toasted malt character in flavor as well as sulfury yeastiness. Woody, earthy hop character. ~medium bodied, medium CO2, a little bit chewy feeling after swallowing. Dry sulfury woody finish. ~Iím not real sure about how I feel about this one. I think maybe I donít like the hops. Its a bit pungent. Iíll drink it for sure, but it isnt exactly enjoyable for me.

22 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine at Arden in Sac. The aroma has some cereal character, light biscuit. Almost some wet paper aromas, too. Transparent dark golden body with a rapidly dissipating whitish head. Starts with a bit of a biscuity, cereal-like malt flavor. Not much in the way of sweetness. Again, some wet paper is also present. Finishes with a fair amount of herbal bitterness. Not a fan of the paper character in this beer.

This gold lager has a lot more bite than your average lager. It has a bold aroma. Common it is not. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle. Pours a golden straw hue with white head. Malty bready nose. Malty taste and good hop bitterness, grassy and lemon flavor. Decent California common. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. Very nice aroma, malty, smooth. Hops are there, but it is not a bitter beer, and it has its sweetness. Rather interesting and I would recommend it.

coreyc1221 (260) - Truckee, California, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Smells bitter with a tartness to it. Clear golden color. Looks amazing. Zingy at first the bitters out kinda hard. Itís pretty good but not great.

fezzy (82) - California, USA - APR 29, 2013
Malt-dominated nose and backbone, bready, with an underlying hop bitterness, lawn and lemon in flavor, but too acrid. The warm malt and yeast balances the acrid notes of the hops for a balanced beer. Shame about the flaw in the bitter element - without it, this would be a truly smashing beer.

Bottle to pint. Herbs and perfume on aroma. Brushed orange with whispy white head of large bubbles. Taste of perfume and slight earth. Slight bitter finish.
