Bottling No. 1-2007
2/12/2008: Tröegs Scratch 1 (California Common) pours a cloudy lemon yellow color with a foamy white head. The aroma has a blend of subtle honey malt, citrus/fruit, and lightly spicy hops. The flavor has a nice blend of pale malt/cereal grain character, light esters (fruit flavor reminds me vaguely of kiwi and/or honeydew mellon with a touch of cucumber or something...), yeast, and some bitter citrus and earthy hops that grab at the throat. The lingering flavor is quite floral and perfume-like with the Cascade hop flavor coming through as well. The body is medium-light with a smooth and crisp palate. IT is easy to drink and quite refreshing. This is a nice example of a California Common beer (which is more of a method than a style, in my opinion). Good? = Yes. Worth trying once? = Yes. Worth the $3.50/bottle price tag? = Not really.
12 fl. oz. bottle (5% ABV) from hopdog. Thanks Steve! Rating #31 for this beer...
