Bottle: Deep gold body with a sustained creamy head. The nose was grainy with some floral and grassy scents. The flavor was much the same, adding a soft grassy, earthy bitterness. Not too bad. edgallow (4369) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2014
12 oz bottle pours brown with an off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and pine. Taste is coffee, malts and some citrus.

Bottle from Chicago and found in random box while clearing out cellar. I’m not a steam beer expert but this was super tasty. Nice malty, lager notes but also a little ale bitterness too. Cool. Discgolfin (36) - - FEB 24, 2013

Late December, 2012. 12oz bottle from HyVee Milan, I believe. My 10th California Common rating! Clear orange pour with a small khaki head. The aroma shows light biscuit, caramel, and a hint of something floral/earthy - the hops, I’m assuming. The flavor is much the same, big biscuit and caramel with a touch of earthy hop. Not bad. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark, slightly cloudy amber with almost no head. Aroma of caramel malt and a good bit of dank herbal hops with a little medicated band-aid. Taste is light bitter. Band-aids, herbal and pine hops with a somewhat weak malt backbone. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, pretty good. Probably one of the most flavorful steam beers I’ve had. justsayswell (281) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Pour is translucent amber with a frothy head that disippates very slowly. Aroma is nutty caramel malt and piney hops with just a touch of diacetyl.
A lot of carbonation in this beer. Piney hops, sweet roasty malt, a little butterscotch, a hint of alcohol, and a dry and lingering bitterness in the finish. This was ok, definitely not terrible, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to get it. ads135 (4923) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 14, 2012
A mild beer. Creamy mouthfeel with hardly any aroma. Flavor or bread, bland caramel, and some butter. Unoffensive and forgettable. BVery (11222) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle from Friar Tuck in Peoria, IL. Clear orange-amber pour with a small white head. Mild caramel malt and pine hop. Palate is a bit thin. Decent carbonation zing, but pretty bland overall.
