Northern Monk - OFS038 - 4.6% California Common - 440ml Can
4.6% California Common
For our second stop in California we visit a style synonymous with San Francisco, and the Anchor Steam brewery – steam beer aka California Common. Brewed with lager yeast but fermented at ale temperatures which delivers a distinct ester profile, our interpretation features a portion of Munich malt in the grist alongside some crystal malt to give a rich, biscuity malt profile and a caramel sweetness on the back end. For the hops, we stuck with Centennial, a west coast OG which delivers herbal lemon balm character and a pithy citrus finish.
