Patrickctenchi (3597) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bomber: Cloudy, light amber-brown with a short, off-white head. Aroma is faint....malt, light grain. Taste is strongly metallic....grains..a hint of rye.... Dry, herbal bittering...grass.. Ok, but the metal notes just get more pronounced as it goes.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle. Fairly standard-looking beer, golden and clear, white, sticky head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The beer drinks with a mashy, corn-like character, quite light in body. Smooth finish, but the aftertaste is a bit off. (#5040, 5/27/2013)

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2013
In short: A straightforward golden beer with a ferrous sensation. Meh.
How: Botlle 22oz, consumed a few months after purchase.
The look: Clear pale-golden body topped by a large white head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is ferrous and also borderline rustic, a mix between scrapyard rusting metals and dusty attic, kind of strange. Taste is also very ferrous, rusty metal sensation, toasted husky grains, some toasted sugars, plenty of minerals, dried fruits (no juicy fresh fruits flavors here). Dry astringent ferrous finish with a mild herbal bitterness. A abundant carbonation with very hard bubbles adds an underired acidity sensation. Of the few California Commons I’ve had (an infrequent style) about half of them had this ferrous/rusty and mineral water flavor to them. Not too sure what to make of it, this beer was kind of off. Not my favorite brewery. Some people don’t know it, but there are cheaper ways to have people look down on you than buying a full case of Three Heads beers.

Scipio (690) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a weak white head. The aroma is citrus hops, bread, banana, and grass. I detect some sourness as well. The taste contains bread, lemon, apple, along with some floral flavors. Strangely, it still it is still kind of sour. Short bready and lemon aftertaste. LIght in body, thin in texture, with average carbonation. It is crisp and easy to drink. I though this was pretty good. Maybe unspectacular, but good enough to drink again without any hesitation.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Poured a honey gold with a good head of foam from a vigorous pour that fell to some crags and really great lace. Nose is fruity hops, a little sour, a little skunk. Malt is caramel and grain. Good lager nose but starts to fall apart as it warms. The hops go grassy and catty and the spice character which is very faint goes sour in the nose. Malt gets breaddier but like sourdough. Taste is breaddy malt with a try at some sweet citrus in back. It puckers from bitter fruit because the lemon got pithy. Husky, grainy malt this is no girlie beer. Finished dry with plenty of full bodied malt. Drank ok but not great because of hops going sour and a taste of corn on the back palate. It was mildly astringent and even a little metallic. Can live without this one.

22oz bottle 3/9/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-50° in Lager Glass-Pours an orangish light amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of hops, grapefruit, citrusm and nalt. This medium bodied brew is darn tasty. Nice job.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bombers from Wegman’s and Capone’s. Pours turbid orange with 2-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is tropical fruity, caramel malt, hopcitric. Tastes of caramel malt up front with piney hops and notes of tangerine and mango. Pretty dense on the palate and pretty complex for a lager. This one is very good.

Bottle. Amber with a tall, fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet malt, grains, soft citrus, and grassy and floral hops. Taste is floral hops, grassy notes, soft citrus, sweet malt, toasted grains, bread dough and light caramel. Body is medium with a soft, creamy carbonation. Ends with more grassy and floral hops, light citrus, toasted bread, sweet malt and light caramel.

Draft from Whole Foods. Tastes like a superior lager for sure - altho I see RB is calling it a California Common. Fresh and tasty, a little like a pale ale. Nice.
