3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ The Willow Walk. The pour’s deep gold with a small white head. The nose is light dried grass, some honey buttered toast, tinned pear fruits. The taste is sugary fruit syrup, more pear. Light lemon zest and grass. Plenty of white bread, biscuity malt sweetness. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty beer. I admittedly don’t know much about California Commons, this tastes like a fairly solid golden ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
9th April 2015: cask, hand-pulled at the Isle of Man CAMRA beer festival. Badged as Okells Steam, no Premium mentioned, but at 5% ABV so assume it’s the same beer. Good old gold colour with a full head crown on top. Light malty backbone on a well hopped, citrusy body and nose. I liked the blend and the 5% ABV it carried: good.

On cask as "Okell’s Steam - Amber Ale". Yellow-orange in colour, smooth in the beginning. The mainpart is grainy, slightly sweety, hints of wheat. The aftertaste is smooth, slightly grainy-bitter, not too deep and quite easy to drink.
On the tongue remains a smooth, sweetish-grainy aroma with slightly bitter wheatish hints.
