Bottle from union beer house. Pours a darker golden color. Aroma of cidery malt. Taste is grassy and floral with hops with an incredibly crisp finish. No lingering bitterness and not overly malty either. I like it. I would get a sixtel of this.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. clear amber body with a small white head, quickly diminishing but with lasting lacing. starchy oat and rye bread and seedy malt and raw wort aroma with notes of DMS , corn, sulfur, dirty dishrag, dried peach and apricot esters and vegetable-stew American hops. medium-light body, light sweetness, medium bitterness. very sourish malt with a starchy and husky graininess and raw celery and cooked leafy greens. I donít see how this sort of beer would be appealing to people.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker gold with a one inch white head that lasts. Lots of carbonation. Taste is of malt, hops, caramel, grass, spice and yeast. Similar aroma. Has a nice wet body. The finish is a touch bitter. Easy to drink and enjoyable to drink. Well worth having again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Bottled 12/19/12. Clear amber color. Thin off-white head. Good spread of lace. Lighter body. Good smooth carbonation, easy-drinking - especially nice to wash some food down with. Little fruity hop flavor. Little toasty malt, some caramel malt. Itís still a little difficult for me to pin down the flavor profile of the California Common, but this tastes like what youíd expect from a lighter version of the style. More bitter, little sweet. Solid, interesting stuff. Creative choice for a spring seasonal.
