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!

Ernest (6262) - 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 itís pleasant enough. Good quaffing balance. Overall better than usual for this brewery.

jsmerig (1260) - 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 (8102) - 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 donít see how this sort of beer would be appealing to people.

rbrazell (1691) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2013
Draft at Fermentation. Amber pour with a bubbly white head. Sweet, caramel malts, biscuit and toastiness with light grass. Sweet malts, toasted bread, faint hop presence and quick, clean finish. Not bad.

scooterbub (841) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 13, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker gold with a one inch white head that lasts. Lots of carbonation. Taste is of malt, hops, caramel, grass, spice and yeast. Similar aroma. Has a nice wet body. The finish is a touch bitter. Easy to drink and enjoyable to drink. Well worth having again.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Bottled 12/19/12. Clear amber color. Thin off-white head. Good spread of lace. Lighter body. Good smooth carbonation, easy-drinking - especially nice to wash some food down with. Little fruity hop flavor. Little toasty malt, some caramel malt. Itís still a little difficult for me to pin down the flavor profile of the California Common, but this tastes like what youíd expect from a lighter version of the style. More bitter, little sweet. Solid, interesting stuff. Creative choice for a spring seasonal.
