1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
What am I missing here? This beer is bland. I give it credit for being crisp, and looking nice, but the hops are essentially nonexistent and the malts are a bit blah.

Overall not a terrible brew. Pour is a medium amber but the head dissapears quickly. Flavor is mild hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The date I see stamped on the bottle is January 14, 2014.
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a light golden color with a decent transparency to it. There is a nice coating of thick foamy lacing sticking finely to the glass.
The smell had some light caramel malts coming forth in a roasty yet also an earthy sort of way.
The taste was a combination of cooked caramel malts with a light rice and corn flavoring. There is a quick sharp caramel aftertaste that ends up leading to a dry sticky finish.
On the palate, it sits about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation is fairly light.
Overall, I say this is a decent California Common.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 15:48-DEC 03 13. The pour is a medium to deep copper amber with a modest off-white head. The aroma is feint with caramel roasted malts but not much in the way of hops. The body is light to medium. The taste has a slightly more rich toasted caramel maltiness with a clean finish.
