An ode to the infamous ‘California Common’ or Steam Beer, Cali Rare has bright citrus fruit on the nose and a touch of sweetness from the corn used in brewing.

Draft glass @ Gollem. Quite hazy bright orange, nice creamy white head. Marketed as a California common but the taste screams IPL & even the appearance makes you briefly think of the NEIPA craze. Lager adapted to the current IPA favouring, hey its quite good so what does it matter. Nose is nice tropical fruit but more on the peel than on fruity. Taste is lovely bitter mango peel, grapefruit peel, thick bodied, creamy, finish is surprisingly harsh, lingering, bitter, very dry. More harsh than is currently fashionable, dryness works. Nice beer.

Holmen2 (3940) - NORWAY - JUL 12, 2017
From tap at Fairbar in Aarhus 12.07.17. Clear golden. White head and lacing. Fine aroma and taste of American hops, citrus and fresh tropical fruits. Refreshing and appealing! Perhaps more a session IPA than a steam beer, but what the heck!

12 ounce bottle from Kihoskh. Pours golden yellow orange. Hops in nose and then some serious orange juice. Far more IPA than common.
