COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was formerly known as "Cismontane California Common Pilot #1"

The California Common almost disappeared after prohibition as did the term Cismontane. Our interpretation of this style is a golden warm fermented lager with sufficient hop aroma. As a brewer and citizen of Cismontane California it is our obligation to produce a fine California Common.

Clear gold - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and mildly crisp. Smooth malts, little cream. Whisper of banana ester. Very mellow orange hops. Light finish with a very mild bitter linger. Tastes more like a mellow apa than a lager. But decent.

Clear orange pour with a white head. Aroma of bread, toast, and orange peel. Some floral hops, grass, and maybe a touch of caramel. Sweet flavor up front with toast, bread, and some caramel.
