I loved it, and so did others.

I used Wyeast Bohemian Pils yeast and was surprised that it did CA Common so well. One of my favorite beers this year. It did pretty well in a competition. The only flaws were in traces of diacetyl, which is typical for this yeast. I didn't detect it, and thought the beer was very tasty. I will certainly brew this again.
