Draft at Brewvival 2012. Pours a clear copper with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toffee malts, nuts and caramel. The taste is grainy malts, stone fruits and caramel. Medium bodied. I could drink this by the gallon.

Draft at the brewpub; JCB told us this was formerly known as the Carolina Common, which I think was a better (and probably more accurate) name. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. Looks like the Schlafly Pi Common I had last month, and it’s nice to see more brewers taking a crack at the style that made Anchor famous. Aroma of earthy hops, sweet malts, straw, leaves, and toast. Flavor of sweet malts, sugar, earthy hops, straw, yeast, and wood. Light-bodied, with sharp carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Not a bad take on the style.

Tap at Fullsteam. Pours a clear amber. Webby lacing. Nose is odd but good- squashy noble style hops, rye, earthy bread. Taste is a bit sticky, spicy, rich and dense. Rustic and heavy. Clean. Quite hoppy with noble style hops. I like this one. IPA profile on a lager.

Taster on tap at Churchkey. Clear red orange color. Little, kind of bubbly off-white head. Dots and splotches of lace. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Good toasty malt, and bigger earthy citrusy hop profile. Great, impressive California Common. The IPA of commons, basically. Good bigger hoppy aftertaste. solidfunk (9408) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pretty tasty for style. Lots of interesting malt in here that comes through with nice aromas despite steaming. Medium thick consistency. Light hops in finish with a little citrus zest. Tap at Churchkey. drowland (9080) - Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2011
3/25/11. Growler courtesy mlunger12. Slightly hazy amber pour with a huge fluffy off-white head. Malty but slightly funky banana/bubblegum aroma. Big malty flavor with a hint of bubblegum. Hmmm.
