3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Amber, clear, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Faint toasted malt and whole wheat
bready aroma.   Very bready on the tongue, not heavy, lots of whole wheat, a little nutty, slightly mealy.   Body
and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft toasted malt finish, lingering whole wheat and nutty notes.   Pretty pedestrian.
Nothing off, but sometimes a little too bready.   Prefer Anchor Steam as it seems a bit hoppier.

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling dark copper pour, light, but persistent off white head with a bit of lacing. Aroma has some nutty accents, a bit of toffee.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pretty amber beer, pleasantly active, with a nice pillowy head of off-white foam. The initial aroma is nice and woodsy, like a wet summer in the Pacific northwest. But this drinks with a more subdued earthy tone, more of a wet grassiness, tinged with a bit of almost smoky funk. (#5012, 5/9/2013)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Poured a clear bronze color with a small white head. Aroma was thin malts, with slightly more substantial hop notes. Flavor was pretty boring, light sweet malts, with light hops. Drinkable, but not my favorite California Common out there.
