(CALIFORNIA’S VERY OWN LAGER) Based on Jim’s California State Fair Gold Medal winner, our version of this wild gold rush frontier beer has a rich amber color and a deep malty body that’s perfectly balanced with generous portions of hops, including a pass through our hopback, a unit we affectionately call R2-D2.

Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of malt, caramel, and nut notes. Flavor is smooth caramel, hops, pine, citrus, chocolate, malts. Overall, a refreshing and smooth beer ideal for the summertime.

"Nicely balanced between toasted malts and grassy hops, but all in all, an average brew as there is nothing that is really memorable in this one...

On tap at West Coast Brew Fest. Pours copper with a modest off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a dry finish.

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

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 12, 2013
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.

On tap at the brewery. Pale yellow/copper pour, white head. Grainy malt, light biscuit, some sweetness, stale hops. Seasonable, OK.

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.

Unbelievable common. Good, strong hoppy aroma and flavor... but a very long citrusy and slightly sweet malty finish. I love this beer.
