The Columbia Hop was near extinction when we brought it back to create this crisp, easy drinking common ale. 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!

mmmbeer (1253) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2013
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent light brown color with a tint of maroon, white head became a small ring around the glass, medium carbonation that quickly died out. Aroma of earth, grass, and light grain. Hits the mouth with a high-light body, malt can get a little lost, light caramel and hop cresent in the middle, finish is tangy with a hint of grass. Not too shabby.

Ernest (6356) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (orange/tangerine, grapefruit, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Light and simple aroma, but it’s pleasant enough. Good quaffing balance. Overall better than usual for this brewery.

jsmerig (1297) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle from union beer house. Pours a darker golden color. Aroma of cidery malt. Taste is grassy and floral with hops with an incredibly crisp finish. No lingering bitterness and not overly malty either. I like it. I would get a sixtel of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3fourths (8239) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2013
bottle. clear amber body with a small white head, quickly diminishing but with lasting lacing. starchy oat and rye bread and seedy malt and raw wort aroma with notes of DMS , corn, sulfur, dirty dishrag, dried peach and apricot esters and vegetable-stew American hops. medium-light body, light sweetness, medium bitterness. very sourish malt with a starchy and husky graininess and raw celery and cooked leafy greens. I don’t see how this sort of beer would be appealing to people.
