COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the beers that accompanied America’s expansion into the West, District Common is fermented using a lager yeast at temperatures common to ale fermentation. The result is a pale, well-balanced beer combining crisp lager character with fruity ale notes. The clean grain bill provides a refreshing drinkability and supports late aroma additions of Czech Saaz hops.

Crisper and lighter with a better hop profile than any other California common that I’ve had. Finally able to get my hands on a great example of the style without being on the West Coast.

Decent flavor, I like this one a lot,not sure if it is just me, but the can design makes me think it is a brown ale, glad that isn't accurate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Faint barley aroma with a slight sour bite in the malt. Finish is clean with a bit of hops.
