Bottle from the brewery shared with my brother.
Light orange amber color with a decent off white head. Spicy minty hop with a solid caramel maltiness to back it up. Decent brew.

Northeast Bucket List Trip Beer #50. Keg at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, citrus, mild nuts. The taste is citrus hops, stone fruits, mild caramel. Medium bodied, crisp.

22oz Bottle from the Brewery labeled: California Common
Assuming this is the same beer.... I have a picture when the add pic feature reappears....
Info from the brew list:
Along with Cream Ale, this is America’s other indigenous beer style, made with lager yeast & fermented at 55° to create a fruity lager with a good hop presence.
Pours a rich copper color with aromas of noble hops, wheat bread and notes of fruity caramel malts... On the palate its crisp and a great balance between slightly bitter saaz style hops and round malts with glimpses of barley wine finish mixed with a bohemian pilsner... nice light flavorful beer !

Nice dark golden color with a light head. This had a great aroma and a flavor that was very much like a deep California common. A good easy summer drinking beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
2004 draught. Pours a bright yellow, light straw golden, with a small white head. Aroma has hints of corn/rice or something lightly bittersweet. Something a bit off, anyways. Flavor is more of the same, a rice sharpness, light syrupy bittersweetness on the finish and just too sharp overall. Strange one here.
