Golden colored, no head and it was poured properly. Hoppy aroma. Full of flavor, with hints of citrus. Medium bodied, with nice bitterness, and a long bitter dry finish. Very tasty, it was my first California Common but will not be my last.

Beer camp #8. A few months old, but kept in the fridge the whole time. Pleasant floral and spicy hops in the nose along with a touch of toast. Golden colored with brilliant clarity, a smallish bone white head and steady carbonation evident. Nice malt backbone that showcases a moderate munich addition, so it is bread crusty and enjoyable and a nice amount of spicy and floral hops. Well balanced and enjoyable. Some lingering malt and spicy hops.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2011
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.

Clear golden honey coloured body with short head. Rich malty aroma with a sweet taste that is not too heavy, a bit of a woody note, light caramel and finish of hops.
