Pours a golden amber with the ring of white head. Grassy nose but even moreso on the the flavor. A little grainy as well. Easy drinker, but nothing iíd go out of my way to seek out.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a nice amber color with a decent off white head. The nose reaks of cooked vegetables. Unfortunately the flavor follows suit with a dry, California Common finish. I had to drain pour this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bright brown with a real fluffy white head. The nose is malty with a crisp lager yeast character and some lightly peppery hops. There is an immediate burst of light bitterness. This then gives way to a real buttery popcorn sweetness which subsides giving an interesting bitter finish. Very drinkable, a great addition to their line-up.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A great looking glass of beer with a deep orange color & a very big tight head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is bready with some toasty malt... some yeastiness in there... not a whole lot of excitement from the nose, but itís not unpleasant at all.
The flavor is nice and malty, a bit of husky graininess is featured throughout. The hops are fruit forward and very pleasant. The beer is lightly bitter....
Not too bad.

Floral, bready, and caramel aromas, with some mild, dusty notes. Clear bronze, with a fairly lasting, off-white head. Clean and well balanced, with toasty, nutty malts and earthy bitterness. Light-medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a clean finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear bronze amber with a thin spotty white head. Nose is watery, light toasted malts. Flavor is okay but still sorta watery and bland. kinda fruity, light easy drinking finish. More drinkable but also less complex than the king of Cali Common, Anchor Steam.
