A brass color with creamy white head and lace. Medium malt and a hint of earthy hops. Light caramel malt, almost musty, with a medium bitter. Medium bodied with a tad aggressive carbonation. I gave this beer an extra .1 for the nice finishing bitter. SSSteve (4006) - - FEB 15, 2009
unusually dark for this style with an amber hue. crisp grainy aroma. flavor is grainy with a touch of fresh hops thrown in. dry and crisp. a very nice beer. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Appearance: Clear, copper body with a thin, wispy, white head.
Smell: Altogether mild aroma smelling lightly of grainy pale malt, seasoned firewood, and only a hint of fruit.
Taste: Lightly sweet, lightly grainy pale malt flavor followed by the characteristically woody, spicy hop character of Northern Brewer hops. Like a tea made of ash tree bark peelings, really. Dull, muted citrus fruitiness. Moderate bitterness throughout. Finishes dry and crisp with a mild, lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation with a fine, crisp texture.
Drinkability: It’s an adequate California Common that’ll do in a pinch, but why not go for something a bit more stirring, like their Hopgasm. Cybercat (5835) - Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Pours a dark, clear golden like dark honey with a thick beige head. Aroma is malty, slightly spicy, slightly sweet, and slightly hoppy. Flavor is more hoppy than malty with a whisper of sweetness and not too much bitter to it. Texture is crisp, tingly and sassy and has a bit of a bite.
