Pours a clear gold with a foamy white head. Nose is fruity yeast, grainy malts and honey like sweetness. Flavor is crisp and clean maltiness with a herbal character. Nice east drinker and seesionable beer.

NayTron (133) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Pours a honey orange. Aroma of yeast, caramel, sweet floral notes and roasted malts. Taste follows the nose. Mellow and sweet with lively carbonation. This would make a great summer day or night beer. Good balance and easy to drink. Nice beer.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Appearance: golden coppers under a large pithy blotchy head which fades splotchy and broken. Swirls clumpy and bubbly.
Nose: biscuit, crackers, saltines, dried straw. Lemon pith and green grass in the back. Table crackers. Dried stems and flower petals. Sunshine and dried grass.
Palate: smooth, creamy, and bready up front. Breads lead into saltine and water crackers. Lemon peel and pith along the sides. Bread sticks to the middle with just a hint of honey. Bitterness is subtle, bittersweet. Dry finish in the back of straw and crackers.
Final Thoughts: nice. A fine contender for the original Steam Beer ala California Common.

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2011
Draft. A dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt, and some herbs. The flavor is sweet with notes of grain, malt, herbs, and hay, leading to a dry finish.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle from Whole Foods, Fair Oaks, VA. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with lots of stuff floating around. Fluffy white head. Flavor of toasted grain and raisins. Sweet, but nicely balanced with a hoppy finish.

Mora2000 (5727) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 30, 2011
The beer pours a light orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of bread and graham cracker. I also get a little bit of honey in the aroma. The flavor has the same malt component as the aroma, with the addition of some toffee and grass from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I am not usually a huge fan of this style but this beer was pretty good.

jgb9348 (4749) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Crisp, clear slightly copper coloured golden body with a soapy, fairly ugly off-white head. Aroma of metal, light hops, earth and a twinge of citrus. Medium-bodied; Assertive alcohol and metallic bitterness at first with a rather deep and long-lasting maltiness, some strong metallic and medicinal flavours and a good sweet and alcohol bite at the end. Aftertaste shows some complexity, but largely a deep and pungent flavour. Overall, an okay california common, but not a great beer - showing too much bitterness, a bit too much body and alcohol and not enough lightness and floral tastes. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 23-June-2011 sampled on the other end of the United States at home in Washington on 27-October-2011.
