RateBeer.com -- Correct Max California Common AleMax California Common Ale

California Common (also called “steam”) is a beer style developed in Northern California by German immigrants about the time of the Gold Rush. The German brewers had brought their lager yeast with them, but California’s climate (there was no refrigeration) was too warm for proper lager fermentation. The result was a beer fermented with lager yeast at ale temperatures. This method combines the smooth, crisp character of a lager with the fruitiness of an ale.

Max Common has a Medium/full body with a caramel-like malt character and a complex hop finish.
