COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very pleasant Hoppy beer that falls somewhere between a Pale Ale and an IPA. Exclusive use of Amarillo Hops provide a wonderful Orange peel aroma and flavor in this beer. The copper color and smooth balance comes from a light mix of Munich, and Crystal malts. This is a true quaffer. What is a Common Ale? Simply put, it is a lager beer brewed as an ale. Warmer Fermentation temperatures provide some fruity esters, and a faster fermentation time than in Traditional Lagers. It is the only style truly indigenous to the west coast of the United States. Due to lack of refrigeration, original west coast brewers would try to make lagers, but the warm temps made them act like an ale.

Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Tap the brewery. A: Semi clear, red color. Thin creme head. N: Grapefruit, pine, cracker, rye, peppercorn, esters, leaves and bracken, some toffee, sourdough and orange peel. T: Quite bitter, not much sweetness, and a touch spicey. M: Light body, slightly resinous, some alcohol, spritzy carbonation. O: Zest beer. Looking for something else in my lager though. A clearly defined path to greatness, if you will.

On tap at the brewpub in White Salmon. The light amber body has good clarity and is topped by a durable beige head that leaves exceptional lacing. Mildly bitter although hop dominated. Medium-light body is smooth with medium-light carbonation

Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw body. The aroma is mild grain. The taste is a nice dry grain with a mild bitter middle. The texture is crisp with a medium body. It’s nice and easy.

Dogbrick (13145) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. This brew pours a clear pale amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, herbs and grain. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and a touch of fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
