Pouredd a clean yellow, light head. The smell is light and clean with a touch of grassy hops. The flavor is clean with light bit of lemony and grassy hops, a touch of light. Light and zipy mouthfeel. Easy and no fflaws.

Hazy gold pour. Light grain malt aroma. Nice body, caramel sweetness and getting a hint of spice. Finishes slightly bitter. Very decent lager.

muzzlehatch (4463) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2016
16 ounce can from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, enjoyed in a Fitgerís pint glass. Hmm, didnít realize this was a California Common - not my favorite style - when I picked it up; it was the only TG beer they had in stock (more promised soon!) and itíll be my first from this acclaimed young company. Well, starting off with something you donít expect to love is good, right? All roses and rainbows after this...anyway, it pours a clear light gold, moderate fully diminishing head, no residue...aroma is grassy, reasonably fresh, a hint of thistle perhaps, soft and pleasing enough but pretty subdued...really nice on the tongue though, the honey sweetness is surprising and it tastes very fresh, not cloying though quite sweet - perhaps just a touch too thick at first but drying and mellowing out somewhat towards the finish...faint dry hop presence, just enough to keep the doughy malts from sticking...ends smoothly and with a faint mineralic bite. This doesnít turn me around on the style exactly, but itís a nice job and Iím sure Iíll enjoy the rest of the 4-pack during the heat weíll be getting the next couple of days.

This beer is golden in color. Looks pretty. Smell like a basic beer and taste like a basic lager. It is easy on the palate, smooth to drink. Taste like an average lager to me. I would buy and drink more of this for a party

venom666 (815) - Elche, SPAIN - JUL 2, 2016
Pours a hazy golden color with medium white head that quickly diminishes. Crisp aroma, sweet, citrusy and caramel/toffee. Taste follows the aroma, toffee and caramel, with sweet malts, citrus, grass and honey.

From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Reading CSHTP6 Ch21. The high drinkability is the most remarkable quality of this slightly fruity brew.

PorterPounder (7113) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Fort Myers, Fl. - Total Wine - 16 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with not much of a head. Aroma has a light fruity essence to it with hints of wort. Flavor has some nice toffee accents, a hint of caramel, some nuttiness and a citrusy back end. Mouthfeel has a nice textured crispness to it. Very enjoyable.

Mad_Ferret (976) - SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle from Kihoskh during CBC. Too drunk to remember to check the dates on the bottle. An almost god damn one year old bottle! Well well... Just slight hazy pale golden yellow with a short white head that lace the glass. Looks good at least. Ok itís old, but itís surprisingly old fashioned with grains, bread and hay and a soft grassy hoppiness plus a pinch of lemon. Same goes with the flavour. Hay and grains, some lemon and grass. Itís a bit cloying with some earthy mushroom kind of flavour, but I think thatís mostly because of itís age and the faded hops. Medium to lighter body with soft carbonation and soft texture. I bet this is a pretty tasty straight up lager when fresh, but now it was just old and dull.

hfmejias (1260) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2016
16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured clear, golden, nice off white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of malts and fruits combined with some grain. Taste is sweet and malty, some fruit and some bread. Super easy to drink and not bad, but certainly not spectacular.
