From the brewer

A truly American style, more commonly known as steam beer. Our California Common is created using our Bavarian Lager yeast strain fermented at ale like temperatures. A nice dose of Belgian Abbey malt lends a tasty biscuit flavor to this delicious amber colored brew.

Who's been drinking this

I guess they changed the name? Kind of a subdued flavor, mildly sweet, like a cream ale with a little more of an amber's malt backbone. Definitely overshadowed by the other two beers today.
First off, this came out much darker than I was expecting. This was basically a lightly hoppy amber ale. Didn't have any grassy funk like I enjoy in a steam beer / common ale to remind me that there are lager roots involved. Out of context this might have been fine, but I wanted something different.
