3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s dark golden with a creamy head. The aroma is mild with light hoppy notes of light fruit, grass and malt. The flavor has a light sweetness and a light spicy bitterness growing more dry towards the finis. The notes are fruit, grass and light yeast, and towards the finish a touch of tea.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Deep golden to copper coloured, clear, smaller loose white head, malt and cooked vegetables in the nose, suppressed hops detectable; moderate bitter-sweet flavour and light to medium bodied; slightly lingering drier and hoppier finish with some fruitiness in the aftertaste. Not totally convincing…

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. It’s still a little difficult for me to pin down the flavor profile of the California Common, but this tastes like what you’d expect from a lighter version of the style. More bitter, little sweet. Solid, interesting stuff. Creative choice for a spring seasonal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head that lasts relatively well. Aroma brought notes of grass, slight cracker, biscuit, hints of lemon, vanilla, hints of honey, pretty mild but lots in there. Taste is a mix of grass, cracker, biscuit, slight earth, honey notes, finishing slightly bitter, dry. Not overly complex, but drinkable with no big off flavors.
