Patagonia Inc., the outdoor apparel company, and New Belgium Brewing are excited to announce California Route, a limited-release organic lager. For 40 years, Patagonia has led the way in developing innovative outdoor gear and in environmental responsibility. To toast the company’s accomplishments, New Belgium partnered with Patagonia to create California Route, an organic California common-style beer. Boasting California lager yeast with subtle fruity esters and a refreshing light lager finish, California Route organic lager is canned for adventure. The beer has an aromatic blast of citrusy Cascade hops and a heavy dose of noble hallertau. The addition of organic Munich specialty malt builds complexity with hints of freshly baked bread. Consistent with Patagonia’s long-standing commitment to organics, the beer is brewed with certified organic ingredients.

Bright cloudy orange pour with white foamy head. 12oz pour from can at home. Musty orange peel aroma. Dank, bitter, fruits, apricot and a touch of vanilla. First sip I didn't like it. By the 4th I did

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014

bb (9697) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 13, 2014
Can. Amber beer with a cream head. Mineral and spice aroma with light caramel. Malt and mineral flavor with light spice. Medium bodied. Malt and mineral lingers with light spice and light fruitiness.

rollinsr (812) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours a light cloudy gold with a finger of white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with effervescent citrus with tart fruits. Flavor is initially crisp with subtle dry hop bite that sweeps across the palate. Once the bitter starts to fade, more of the sweet fruits are evident bringing around a nice full circle of flavor. Very enjoyable.

ChainGangGuy (4919) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2014
12 ounce can - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

The bottom of the can is dated 23 MAR 2014.

Appearance: Pours a very lightly hazed, dark yellow body with just under an inch of white foam. Not particularly much lacing.

Smell: Agreeable biscuit nose, a thin, thin sliver of caramel sweetness, and hop notes scented of citrus fruit, flowers, and dried herb.

Taste: Lightly biscuity, lightly toasted grains with a thin layer of incorporated sweetness. Citrus, floral, spicy-edged herb hop notes. Medium-light bitterness. Soft yeastiness. Drying, modestly spicy finish with a mild, lingering fruity lemon flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Refreshing, easy-drinking.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Can:   Sweaty and a bit grainy overall.   Mealy sweetness, but a decent body.   A bit more husky/grainy/mealy than others, but also has the body to back it up.   Tiz okay... otherwise, a big MEH.

flannelnomad (57) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Hazy yellowish/orange, bright white head. Nice balance off toasty, robust malts with nice straight forward bitterness. How complicated can you get for this style- it isn’t skunky, carbonation is spot on, nice and smooth- one of my favorite, favorite lagers. Super bummed it’s a one-off.

Lemke10 (993) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2014
This pours a hazy, yellow color with a foamy, off-white head. The aroma has a slightly bitter tone with hints of yeast. The taste is a smooth, mellow lager taste this well balanced in hops and malts. This isn’t anything that will wow you, but it is very drinkable and well made.

BVery (11222) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Can. Pale orange pour with a small pillowy white head. Grain and grassy hops, but very fresh smelling / tasting. Full flavor and aroma. This is quite good! Nice little bite on the tongue but not bitter.
