Bottle. Yeast, fruits, vegetables and malt aroma, a bit citrusy too. Cloudy amber colour. No head retention, flavour is sweet and slightly sour, dry after taste.... it feels a bit off, I remembered this beer much better than this.

Bottle, 5%. Vegetable aroma. Cloudy amber colour. Small stable white head. The flavour has some vegetable, but also a refreshing acidity. A bit of paper in the finish, but not bad.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 A friend send me this one from Chile, so Today I’m drinking again this beer and it is completely different as the one I reviewed first, now it has more bitterness, It has a citrus aroma and flavor. It lacks that caramel flavor, but still sweet with a dry aftertaste. Interesting view of a California common. Not excellent but enjoyable.
"Not a California Common at all, it taste more like a pale ale. Light beer with pepper, yeast flavor. Pretty similar to the first pale ale I brewed long time ago. It is just ok. Not going to drink it anymore."

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, from trade with fonefan. It’s an unclear, orange beer with a small, off-white head. Yeast, some sourness and a dominant fruityness on the nose. The flavor is milky sour and quite fruity, lacking on bitterness, both in general and considering the style. Medium body with ok carbonation. Low on bitterness in the finish too. There’s some interesting things going on in this one, but it seems to be off, at least I hope it’s not supposed to be like this. 110330

Bottle. Pours a hazy and light brown beer with a weak offwhite head. The aroma is malt, alcohol and notes of acidity. The flavor is following the nose with some additional notes of caramel. The palate is sweetness and notes of acidity. Overall a boring beer.
