COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Itís the perfect beer for Spring. Prost!

Bottle. Colour....translucent amber. Nose...spent grain, some hops and a slight floral/spice aspect. Palate...plenty of CO2, grassy, freshly cut alfalfa, a hint of hops, cereal and a fairly clean finish. Quite quaffable. Thisíd be a dandy on a hot summer day.

Short white head and a dark gold color. Opaque. Taste is a little sweet and malty. Finishes crisp and clean. Decent to drink but nothing noteworthy.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle from the Arden BevMo. Pours light amber with a slight head. Aroma is lightly malty. Med body. Flavor is a light brown sugar with a fair amount of earthy bitter. A little fruity. Donít think itís banana ester tho. I think the main aspect, and it is strong in the finish, is the bitter. Decent beer.

Thisis12ptfont (781) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Herbs, candied caramel and sugared nuts on the aroma. Light copper appearance with no foam. Flavors of metallic caramel, sugared nuts and mild hops dominate the flavor. There are some undertones of toffee, grains and burnt sugar. Overall, a basic yet, unique ale to start off the spring. Iíd give this a B- rating.

jkwood04 (3403) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2013
12oz bottle. Looks light with a white head. Aroma of pale malts and some floral hops. Flavor about the same. Average to light texture. A decent beer for the style.

radagast83 (4126) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Draft. Poured a clear bronze color with a small white head. Aroma was thin malts, with slightly more substantial hop notes. Flavor was pretty boring, light sweet malts, with light hops. Drinkable, but not my favorite California Common out there.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle from Kroger. Medium orange pour with a white head. Aroma is grassy, malty, and almost green beans. Taste is light, crisp, more slight veggies, and a creamy finish.
