   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Originally reviewed: 12/1/10. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with a thin white head on top. Light retention; some faint lace sticks around. Scents of buttered bread, faint herbs, and an odd gravy-like scent. Not what I expected. The body is moderately full with a sharp crispness to it. Carbonation bite on the back end. The flavor is a little more pronounced than expected with notes of grassy hops, herbs, and bitter citrus rind. I expected a mellow tame beer, but the flavors are popping on this one. I don’t have much experience with the style, so I can’t say if this is common, but it’s not what I expected. Drinkability is fair. This was refreshing and a decent beer.

12oz bottle poured into my Duvel tulip. A - Pours a light amber with a small one finger white head that leaves small amounts of lacing down the glass. S - Quite a crisp, clean, aroma. Plenty of floral hops and a nice light roasted malt backbone. T - Herbal hop bitterness up front that lingers on the pallet for a while. The tasted malts come thru a little more toward the middle with a chewy, biscuity, taste. A very clean and smooth steam beer. I just wish more people would brew this style beer. M - Medium-light body with light flavor with moderate carbonation. Fairly smooth feel with a crisp, dry, finish. D - Have not had a lot of steam beers but this was still very enjoyable. Not as good as when I first had it. May have gone down hill a bit since release but still another solid offering from the scratch series.

Damico (2619) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2011
The beer pours clear medium to dark golden in color with a decent bright white head on top. The aroma has the light ale fruitiness of a California Common, not like a normal lager yeast brew. The flavor has the pleasant ale fruitiness throughout, just a bit of a bland style overall in comparison to bigger beers one might consume. Decent overall.

thirdeye11 (5610) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2011
(12oz bottle) clear golden with a frothy white head. Nose of coriander, spices, medium sweet malt. Taste of grain mash, coriander and the finish has soft carbonation.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden hue and a fast to fade white head. Aromas are floral, hoppy, bready, mint. A little spice and a bit stale. Flavors are severely oxidized, huge vegital notes, DMS, bitter, sweet malt. Cardboard. Absolute mess. Lively bubbles, dry, some metallic notes. Not good.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of thirdeye11) Pours a clear yellow body with a moderate white head. Aroma of toasted grain, orange, caramel, and florals. Flavor of citrus, toasted grain, grapefruit, and dry stale bread.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Clear golden yellow. One finger of frothy white head with average retention and not really any lacing. 3.5 S: Light neutral maltiness, some floral hops, and just enough house character to make it pleasant. Otherwise, rather straightforward and simple. 4.0 T: Taste is about the same as the nose. Neutral maltiness or perhaps a touch grainy, mild hop bitterness and a touch of herbal flavor. Super clean yeast. The house character is a bit stronger, bumping this one up to a four. 4.0 M: Light body. Good moderate carbonation. Fairly creamy and super smooth. 4.0 D: Easy to drink for sure. While I like beers with a bit more taste to them, this one went down without a problem and I could have another. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-18-2010 00:10:01

arminjewell (6294) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Pours hazy yellow, visible particulate yeast, with thin off white head. Aroma is lemon, some bready and biscuit notes. Taste is lemon, yeasty spice, bread, with a creamy mouthfeel. Good brew, unlike many others, and very different from other california commons.

Thanks to Armin for bringing the bottle! Poured hazy medium golden with a moderate whitish head. The aroma picked up lemongrass and pineapple upfront over a bit of a pale base.. smelled like it was going to be refreshing. The flavor was sweeter than anticipated, with pale and bready malts at the core.. some lemon zest and a little tanginess on the edges.. finished fairly sweet with honey joining on the finish. Light-medium bodied and sweet overall on the palate.. the balance was actually quite good. This was good stuff.
