Smells faintly like caramel. Pours red without much head but some lacing. Carbonation isnít super high for a ten dollar pitcher on College and Bathhurst Street. Aftertaste is a little sour and thatís it. Not great.

Cask days 2012, called quagmire lager. Odd sour malt aroma, wet grass, wet hay. Low bitterness, semi sweet malts. Odd funky flavor, really detracts from the subtle tasty malts. Sour cooked vegetables, and cut grass.

Draft at the Blackshire Pub in London. Not too much scent. Very pale light yellow pour with very little head. Dry and hoppy. Very understated and very drinkable. I wonder if all California Commons taste like this, if so I think I may have a new favoured style. Thereís nothing strong or flavourful here but it just works. I could see drinking this one all night. To bad itís lunch.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
On tap. pours rather light amber small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, some hops. Flavour is minor amounts of caramel, some hops with some grassy flavours. Okay....

matt7215 (2169) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2011
on tap at the black shire. shimmering gold with an off white head. nose of american hops, well structured biscut malt aroma. flavour is approachable and lean more towards the hops then the malt body. tight bitter finish. nice one.

Ontbeertaster (2335) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2011
Tap, pours a golden colour, it is pretty basic stuff, it has a nice maltyness and it is pretty easy drinking, overall decent

On tap. Dark golden yellow with little head. Hint of grass and hay in the aroma. Grass comes through more in the taste. Very nice.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Light amber pour with a white head. The aroma is fairly nice with a little bit of light estery fruit. Soft lightly toasted malt. Fairly soft minerally bitterness. Light sweetness but in general itís pretty decent. Tasty and quaffable.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2010
Interesting hybrid between a typical lager and a typical ale. A moist skunky lager-like feel finishes with a more hoppy ale-like finish with a tad of malt. Enjoyable and sessionable, though not overwhelmingly interesting apart from the style.

Spab (2357) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2010
On tap at Volo. Pours a clear copper with a decent-sized off-white head. Aroma of grains and sweet fruit. Taste has a nice fruity sweetness mixed with some mild grassy bitterness. Ok.
