2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a nice golden yellow. Aroma immediate of fresh hops, grass, and corn. Flavour is similar, easily drinkable. Personally, I prefer the original common. Decent enough tho, but not spectacular.
Pours a light yellow color with a light malt and fruit aroma. Taste is light, minor fruit, and refreshing. A small amount of bitterness after the swallow. alexsdad06 (10389) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2015
12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet grainy malts, caramel, yeast, lightly fruity, mildly doughy bread, soft. Not bad for what it is, but not very exciting.

Bottled in late March.
A: Pours a nice bronze orange ale with brilliant clarity. Three fingers of eggy, creamy head which falls over a few minutes to a sheet of the same with centralized capping. Spotty lacing.
S: Grain, hey, grassy hops, a hint of metal. Sweet malts are quite evident. Not terribly complex, but actually relatively nice.
T: Floral malts are my initial reception: grass, sunflower, petunias. Slightest hint of bittering hops. Clean malts are munich in nature. Some hints of honey. Finish is short and sweet.
M: Medium body with low carbonation. Thick and sticky finish. Wish this was a little less resonant.
O: Sweet beer. Nice and light in flavor. Actually reminds me of SA Boston Lager, but only because it’s so sweet. Not disappointed this is a short lived production from SN.

Bottle. 2011 Vintage. Poured a yellow color with an averaged sized head. Floral hops, light earthiness, some honey, and some citrus. SDalkoholic (2386) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle from Bevmo: Poured with minimal amount of head while the liquid was a sparkling gold. Not a lot of aroma to be smelled in this ale other than some light scents of perfume and fruity hops, but perhaps a pinch of grained barley malt too. The flavor is simple with a sweet base of grain like malts and some dried fruit in the faint background. Other than that this is a plain and bland beer, but its still easily quaffable.

Drank 6/4/2011. Pours a golden clear color with a low but dense white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma has a grainy, light fruity ester presence with a light grassy hops and some late flowery notes. Flavor starts off grainy with some light toasted malt presence moves into a mild sweetness from the fruity notes. Hops present a very light lemon but adds a distinct grassy flavor. Body was of modest density with a slight dryness at the end and a very bubbly texture. Overall a pretty tasty brew. LIght overall feel makes it perfect for the warm summer months. I love the light/mild toasted kick of the beers. Looks like a lawn mower beer but with a ton of flavor. madmitch76 (24791) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013

Clear amber beer, small white head. Slightly crisp palate, dry. Sweetish malt, a little spice. Trace of cream. Light finish. Got a vaguely Belgian feel to it but not quite joined up.
