Clear reddish color. Autumn malty smells. Metallic coin maltyness that fades to a grain taste. It leaves a slight metallic bitter behind.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Ol Republic. Light copper in color with a small off white head. Aroma is cracker malt and citrus with light herbal tea and caramel. Flavor is balanced with malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness, the citrus finish leaves this one crisp and refreshing. Light body with average carbonation. Very good beer for the style.

On tap at the brewhouse, this is a good, clean, true-to-style California Common. Pours medium amber, this lager did exhibit some ale-like characteristics. Herbal, woody and earthy hops balanced caramel and toasty malt notes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the brewhouse. Pours a gold, copper with an off-white head. Lots of malt dominating this flavor, which leans towards the malt versus the hops. While i really liked this beer, i thought it was not to style....which kind of threw me off really enjoying this. I guess living in the Bay Area, i just expect this to be an Anchor Clone -- probably my bad on that. In any event, more hops would have helped this one out...but it still scores very well!

Tap at the brewery. Your usual common notes here with a bit more floral side of the citrus aspects. Very sessionable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Unbelievable common. Good, strong hoppy aroma and flavor... but a very long citrusy and slightly sweet malty finish. I love this beer.

Tap at Sacramento Brewers Showcase. Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma is malt with mild citrus. Very refreshing. Flavor is Anchor Steam plus. Very nice. Weirdly, coffee popped up at the end. Probably bad on me.
