A decent mid-strength is a must for a brewery that's as much about the function it serves to its locals and community as much as it is about the beers themselves. Given Common Ground Brewing is also a stone’s throw from the spiritual home of arguably Queensland’s most famous mid-strength, XXXX Gold, the stakes couldn’t be higher.
Fortunately, Common Sense rises to the challenge in providing all and sundry with a flavourful alternative to you-know-what. The beer itself has a decent body with a solid but not overwhelming malt profile. It’s amply hopped too and is more than enough to hold your attention and see you through the session.
