With a rich amber hue, Columbia Common, the new Spring Seasonal Release for 2013, has a Mild grassy and spicy hop notes are complemented by a fruity character and clean finish brought on by the use of hefeweizen and lager yeasts and unique malt bill. It’s the perfect beer for Spring. Prost!

bottle pours orange with a thin white head. Aroma is bready and slightly sour in a citrus way. Flavor is very malt forward, but again there is a slight sourness that I don’t think is intentional. Eh.

Lager yeast and grainy aroma. Decent head and orange-ish, amber color. Tastes of grain, some bitterness, and hints of fruit. A little metallic. Okay.

arminjewell (6414) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head that lasts relatively well. Aroma brought notes of grass, slight cracker, biscuit, hints of lemon, vanilla, hints of honey, pretty mild but lots in there. Taste is a mix of grass, cracker, biscuit, slight earth, honey notes, finishing slightly bitter, dry. Not overly complex, but drinkable with no big off flavors.

Braudog (5890) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Pretty amber beer, pleasantly active, with a nice pillowy head of off-white foam. The initial aroma is nice and woodsy, like a wet summer in the Pacific northwest. But this drinks with a more subdued earthy tone, more of a wet grassiness, tinged with a bit of almost smoky funk. (#5012, 5/9/2013)

J_man (734) - Tustin, California, USA - APR 30, 2013
Slightly hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aromas of bread and cracker with a light hay and grass component and a slight sour, barnyard note. Taste is fairly straightforward with light caramel and toast, and nice floral hops to balance it. Finishes clean and smooth. Nice, tasty, easy drinking spring beer.

BeerKurve (509) - - APR 28, 2013
Dark Orange with a fairly clear appearance and the carbonation appears fairly moderate; Lacing is also fairly abundant.. Aroma has some fairly strong yeast & barley notes backed up by a mild Pils-grassy scent. The flavor has a strong yeast & barley profile backed up by a hefeweizen-like spicy zing. Body is moderate in weight and the carbonation is fairly mild. A decent and drinkable steam beer, but the spiciness I could’ve done without.
